During his two seasons with Illinois, Curbelo appeared in 50 games and posted an assist rate of 33.4 percent. Curbelo, a pass-first point guard, has played in two straight NCAA Tournaments.
Curbelo is small and he struggles with his shot (16.9 3P% career); there are turnover concerns, too. However, Curbelo is a dynamic creator, who can get places on the floor with his dribble and really set teammates up.
