Edwin’s ESPN Profile

December, 2008: An athletic wing that is a run and jump player. He uses his athleticism to slash to the basket and finish in traffic. Although his elbow is out on his jumper, Edwin is a consistent 3-pt shooter. But the bulk of his scoring is done on the break and in his driving game. He is great at cutting through the defense and being crafty with his shots around the basket. Combining his athleticism with his creativity around the bucket makes Edwin a tough player to stop off the dribble. Named to the All-Tournament team at the Beach Ball Classic in averaging 19 ppg.
