With his size (6-5) and skill set, Van Essen is one of the most difficult matchups in the state. He’s a gifted scorer with great footwork around the rim, and that’s where he does a big portion of his scoring.

Over 80% of Francis’ field goal attempts came from behind the arc last year, and if you’re going to shoot over 54% on those attempts, that certainly makes sense.
