B.J. Young's Slump- Moves Down NBA Draft Boards

        NBA scouts have been enamored with Arkansas guard, B.J. Young during his tenure with the Razorbacks. The sophomore has great size at 6'3", 180 pounds, good length and tremendous jet-like quickness. There are few players that have the speed of Young with the ball in his hands, which Young has often due to the lack of options surrounding him. These opportunities are now a cause for concern as Young's numbers have taken a dip across the board, especially recently for the 2013 NBA Draft prospect.

        Overall, Young's shooting has taken a hit, down 6 percentage points in overall field-goal percentage, nearly 20 percentage points in 3-point accuracy and another half-dozen in free-throws. The one improvement in Young's game has been his decision-making in setting up teammates- raising his assists and cutting his turnovers down to nearly 2 a game, a feat considering how often he possesses the ball.

        But look at how poorly Young and his Razorbacks have been playing recently: 0-2 in their last two, both on the road where Young has a combined 2-for-19 shooting mark, including 0-for-8 from 3-point range. He has accumulated just 3 assists to 9 turnovers, more turnovers than points (7) as well. Not a good stretch for Young as he continues to drift down Draft boards this year.
