Strength on Offense: Has the necessary post moves to be a threat in the paint. Has good hands and eye coordination to receive interior passes. Stays after plays and doesn’t give up after taking a shot. Willing to dive on the floor for loose balls.
Weakness on Offense: Likes to put up the occasional three pointer. Free throw shooting needs practice. Rarely looks to set screens.
Strength on Defense: Has quick hands. Has a good sense of timing with blocking shots. Provides remarkably solid help defense as a freshman. Amaker has utilized Sims quickness with half court traps.
Weakness on Defense: One on one post defense is decent but will need help defense against quality veteran players. Needs to box out the opponent with rebounding.
Summary: Has started every game as a freshman and has provided consistent scoring from the post position.
