Scouting Report on Spencer Hawesby Jerry Meyer - 05/02/2005
With good hands, good feet, and a very intelligent approach to the game, Hawes is usually in the right spot on the court to catch and finish or able to hit the cutter for an easy basket. He has very advanced post moves which he can finish with right or left hand jump hooks. He also has perimeter skills. Hawes does need to get stronger and is more of a finesse player who relies on his skills since he is not very explosive around the basket.
