DaRon Holmes II (Forward) vs. Caleb Love (Guard)

DaRon Holmes II‘s contribution to the Dayton Flyers has been even, netting 20.4 points and 8.4 rebounds on average. Being very versatile on both the offensive and defensive ends of the floor, which shows in a 54.5% field goal percentage and 2.1 blocks per game, makes him hard to beat. By diversifying his strengths, Holmes II will prove to be a vital asset for Dayton’s playing strategy.

However, Caleb Love of the Arizona Wildcats scores the most, which is 18.1 points per game. It is clear that Love has the shooting skills with a 85.3% accuracy from the free throw line and 34.7% shooting from long range.

When these two major figures come face to face on the floor, it will be not only about their ability, but also the degree of tactical execution. Holmes II is not only an interior defender but also a perimeter defender because the pace of the game and the final result depend on how he defends against Love’s perimeter shooting.
