Nik Stauskas has really expanded his offensive game, and it hasn't taken away from his shooting stroke and consistency.
After knocking down 44 percent of his threes as a freshman, he's currently connecting on 44.7 percent as a sophomore while making 2.5 a game.
Last year, most of Stauskas' threes came as a spot-up catch-and-shooter. This year, he's spending more time on the ball, where he's shown the ability to pull up or step back and release off the dribble.
Stauskas has gone from a stationary shooting target to one who can shoot on the move. And he's now a threat to use his accurate stroke in more offensive situations.
Free-throw shooting has also become a factor, as Stauskas' scoring threat increased from one year to the next. He's making 5.8 free throws a game at a lights-out 82.1 percent clip this season.
He's a more complete player than he was a year ago, and that's helped boost his stock tremendously, but at the end of the day, it's Stauskas' jumper that's going to carry him throughout his NBA career.
