Our series on the top players in the BCL continues with a look a four standout guards from four different schools. Here are their evaluations: 

Juan Salas | New Mission | 6’1” | Combo Guard | 2021  

Salas is a knock-down shooter, who can make plays off the dribble for himself and others. His stroke is quick and compact, he needs little space to get it off, and he makes shots from well beyond the 3PT line. He hits catch-and-shoot threes, from a standstill and on the move, and also connects on pull-up threes. While he doesn’t burst into the lane or explode to the rim, he has a tight, crafty handle and knows how to use his body around the rim. He’s also adept at reading the defense and makes quick, smart passes off a live dribble, especially in transition. On the defensive end, his feet move well laterally, his hands are active, and he defends with effort and intensity. In a recent win over East Boston, he dropped 25 points, including four made threes.
