The NCAA is full of spontaneous athletes, especially in Men's College Basketball. The underrated player in Men's basketball is Shabazz Muhammad. He is an excellent player who has all of the fundamentals of basketball that a coach likes and needs. He led the UCLA Bruins to beat Arizona about a week ago. In fact, he is averaging 18.1 points, 5 rebounds, and 0.1 blocks per game. Muhammad runs the court quickly for fast breaks, making it easy for transition all-oops. Against Arizona, he had pink eye but still played and had a dominant performance. Shabazz Muhammad would make a great fit on an NBA team. Most coaches would also like that he has a very quick release. This way, he can slow down and save energy while draining a three. If he gets a sudden pass and a defender is collapsing on him, then he can just shoot. He deserves more credit, because he is making a team that wasn't heard of this year into a team starting to shine.
