Scouting Report on Lance Thomas

by Jerry Meyer - 05/02/2005
Long, lean and athletic, Thomas plays hard and to win. A good scorer in the midrange, he has a quick first step to the basket. Ball handling is solid, but he does have room for improvement as a handler and passer. Defensively, Thomas moves his feet very well and has the length and spurtability to cover a lot of ground. Does need to get stronger and improve his shooting range.

Jerry Meyer serves as a national scout and recruiting analyst for Rivals.com. He played at Lipscomb University where be became college basketball's all-time career assist leader. Meyer earned Mr. Basketball honors in the state of Tennessee as a high school junior and senior. He has served as an assistant coach at Vanderbilt and also co-authored the book, "Basketball Skills and Drills."
