The San Antonio Spurs are still riding high off wins against the Boston Celtics and Phoenix Suns over the weekend and that means they’ve got a real shot at a low draft pick in 2018. That brings us to our spotlight of potential draft picks and this special edition features Wichita State guard Landry Shamet.
We’ve previously talked about Shamet and how he might help the Spurs. So now, we get to highlight his best game yet as a Shocker. He went for a career-high 30 points in a 78-66 win against Oklahoma State in Stillwater.
He went 6-of-11 from the floor and made 14 of his 16 free throws on the day. So clearly, he showed his aggressive side during the game and he just seemed to hit big shots at the right time all game. He controlled the tempo of the game and was easily the steadiest player on the floor. He sat only four minutes the entire game and when he did, the Shockers looked disconcerted and confused.
He ended up going 4-of-7 from deep and 2-of-6 from the rest of the floor. The 6-foot-4 guard also finished with five assists and a steal against only two turnovers as well as two rebounds.
The Shockers made the move to a better conference in the AAC this year, so it’s certainly possible that Shamet could be lifting his game again as the conference is expected to have several teams in the NCAA Tournament this season.
Here are some of the highlights from the game:
