Langford was terrific tonight scoring a game high 25 points in a loss to the host team, Norcross. Although it was in a losing effort, Langford was dominant with his cheap research paper writers ability to score, rebound and find open teammates. His blend of athleticism and footwork allow him to power past defenders while having the body control to score around taller players. He has touch that has him scoring at a high percentage. Impressively, he found teammates when the double teams did come. Perhaps the most eye opening part of his game was when he was not in the game. He stayed engaged and helped coach his teammates when he had to sit in foul trouble in the first half.

Langford is a critical essay help strong and physical guard that punishes defenders with his big body. He dribbles through contact to draw fouls or finish at the rim with his long arms over the defender. Langford is a good ball handler and uses a variety of dribble moves to beat his man before he physically overpowers him. Defensively he does a good job of anticipating, jumping in the passing lanes and turning it into two points. He get his share on defensive rebounds and starts the break by himself where he is a capable finisher.

cheap wall papers uk Langford is more than capable of attacking the rim to score. He passes well off of the bounce though based on this eval we see him more as an off the ball guy than a PG. In that regard, he’s a more skilled version of Corey Sanders (FL-15/Rutgers). Langford hit a couple of open 3-pointers but the delivery/release is a bit unorthodox.
