2. Rob Dillingham

Dillingham did not perform much better, but at least he looked for his shot more. Neither Dillingham nor Sheppard are dynamic defenders. Their claim to excellence is in their offensive production, which was sorely lacking versus the Grizzlies. Rob showcased a lot of quickness but still struggled to find his way around the defense to penetrate the paint, draw in the defense, or create easy shots.

The result was an inefficient game for the freshman from North Carolina. He ended the matchup with 10 points on 2-9 from the field, six rebounds, and three assists. He handled the ball for a large portion of the game and only had one turnover, plus he went 4-4 from the free throw line.

His effectiveness from the charity stripe along with his display of ball security are what elevate his performance over Sheppard, though his position over Reed is only slight due to how he ended the game. Dillingham went on a spree of bad shot attempts, which were surely making Wildcat fans cringe when the game was in the balance.
