As he continues in the NBA’s pre-draft process, Virginia Cavaliers point guard Reece Beekman is currently participating in this year’s NBA Combine and has been playing as Wahoo fans would expect.

Notably, in yesterday’s first round of scrimmages, Beekman put together a solid all around performance with eight points (2-8 from the floor, 1-2 from three, 3-4 from the line), five assists, two steals, and a +25 plus/minus while also helping to hold opposing guard Terquavion Smith (who Beekman locked down both times the ‘Hoos tipped off against NC State) to 3-16 shooting.

Here are a couple highlights from Beekman’s first scrimmage:

Obviously, Reece made his presence felt on the defensive side of the ball, consequently furthering his persona as a playmaking defender. Canning that catch and shoot three will help to alleviate some of the concern regarding whether his shot will translate to the NBA level. Beekman’s 1-6 shooting from two-point range, however, indicates the room for improvement he still has as a scorer.

Additionally, a few of Beekman’s measurements stood out. From watching him play it’s obvious that he has a plus wingspan, but measuring in at 6’7” will help his defensive stock particularly as a slightly undersized point guard.
