Summary

Dariq Whitehead is a 6’6 shooting guard who has taken a less is more approach to his game, he doesn't waste movement at all, he understands how to get his defender off balance and using jab steps and pump fakes to get to his spots in the midrange or from the 3pt line. Has good athlete but doesn't rely on it to be effective on the offensive end. He fills the lanes in transition and will finish over the top of the defender. He has good vision and looks to find open teammates and does a good job PnR action hitting the roller with on target pocket passes. He moves well off the ball, making timely cuts to easy shot attempts in the lane. On defense, he can switch and guards 2-4 using his lateral quickness, quick hands, length and strength. He still needs to improve his handle, as well as develop a more creative arsenal around the basket, floaters, runners, etc. He can also play out of control at times while driving to the basket.

Notes

USA Basketball - Colorado Springs, CO - 10/11-13/2019 


Wants to defend 94 feet, uses his size and strength well to disrupt the ball handler, does not lose sight cutters, and gets over or around screeners. Aggressive attacking the basket from the perimeter and can finish with contact.


Memphis Hoopfest - Memphis, TN - 1/3-4/2020 


Putting the ball on the floor creating for himself, getting into the lane finishing with contact. Has good frame. Gets into his stance on the defensive end.


Peach Jam - Augusta, GA - 7/19 - 7/25/2021


Offensively he played at his own pace, never allowing the defense to speed him up. He seemed very aware of his sweet spots on the court, primarily corner 3s, which he knocked down at a high clip. He was effective as well, getting his shot off from the wings and the top of the key off the catch and the dribble. He created for himself off the dribble, using his strong frame to shed defender on drives to the basket. Defensively he can move his feet well laterally, coupled with his physical strength, which allowed him to absorb contact and not allow the offensive player to create separation. He has good length and quick hands, which allowed him to play the passing lanes well and collect on-ball steals. Areas of improvement would be, improving his explosiveness along with his ballhandling.
