   An Unnecessarily Exhaustive Guide To The 2010/11 NCAA Tournament, Part 4: Western Region

The wing spot is largely held down by Solomon Hill and Kevin Parrom. Both are arguably tweener forwards, but both have good size and athleticism for the wings, as well as some versatility. Hill can double as a secondary ball handler, and adds a mid-range game, very good athleticism, dribble-drives, spin moves, dunks, and some highly capable defense. Similarly, Parrom also does a bit of everything, especially now he's added a highly efficient three point shot to go along with his mid range game. He drives the ball, shoots the ball, rebounds the ball, moves the ball, can pass the ball, is athletic, will run the court, and is a versatile, interested defender. His biggest weakness may only be inconsistency; the same criticism could be levelled at Hill, however, who tends to be a little game player. And Parrom might even be a better player than Hill at this point. Yet somehow he can't crack 20mpg. It seems strange.

Solomon Hill

Hill was a surprise first round pick, but not a bad one. Give Damien Wilkins a spin move and you're in the right area. (And early career Damien Wilkins was pretty good.) Hill never dominates games - he can't dominate games. But he compliments those that does. He gets a few of his own in transition, off the dribble and with a much improved jumper, he boards, he defends well enough, and he's a solid passer. He's the little things guy that you don't necessarily want your team to "settle" for in the late first round, but whom you'll soon come to understand why they did. I further don't believe concerns about his ability to play small forward at the next level are legitimate. Hill will be fine - he's too smart and skilled not to be.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
