The big man put on a show

Incoming freshman Bobi Klintman has spent the last couple of weeks absolutely dominating the FIBA U20 Championship B Division, putting up some crazy numbers that should get Wake Forest fans very excited.

Klintman helped lead Sweden to a 6-1 record, with their only loss coming to Iceland in the quarterfinals of the bracket stage. Among the players in Division B, he was 8th in scoring, 3rd in rebounding, 6th in assists, and 8th in steals per game. He can literally do it all.

From what I have seen so far, Klintman appears to be a more athletic Jake LaRavia. He can score at all levels and his ball handling and court vision are incredible for a guy with a 6-9 frame. For a power forward, 5.1 assists per game is kind of absurd, and in the highlights below you can see him taking the ball coast to coast and throwing no look passes with pinpoint accuracy. I think he fits the perfect mold for what coaches are looking for in the position-less basketball era. I am definitely excited to see what he can do in the ACC.

Go Deacs!
