The 2020 guard has displayed a variety of ways to put the ball through the hoop. Most prevalent, shooting the 3. Making 96 on the year is an average of 3.8 per game meaning that’s about 12 of his 21 points per game. Hoth makes 3s in a variety of ways as well. Set plays coming off screens, drive kick outs from Gravelle and Dobuol, and transition.
The ability to run around in the half-court, come off a screen, and fire a shot from beyond the arc is defining trait for a shooter. In highlights vs Rocori and Park Center Hoth did it multiple times. It’s reminiscent of how Kyle Korver or Richard Hamilton would scurry around for a quick hitter 3 for their team.
Hoth contributed for the Eagles in other various ways as well. He secured 3.8 rebounds helping push tempo all season long. He wasn’t much of a offense starter but managed 1.7 assists. In Apollo’s aggressive defense he grabbed 1.5 steals a game.
