Catching Up with GA 2021 PG Broc Bidwell
Broc Bidwell is a GA 2021 PG with ultimate range and elite shooting ability off the bounce. Bidwell does not need much space to get his shot off in the halfcourt. He has a great handle and uses his skills to break defenders down off the bounce and touch the paint where he can finish well or find his teammates for easy scoring opportunities. Bidwell plays really well out of high ball screens and dribble handoffs. In transition, he loves to push the tempo and score using a variety of moves with the Euro step being his go-to. On the defensive end, Broc does a nice job of staying in a low stance with active hands allowing him to pick up multiple steals per game. Bidwell is a leader on the court and makes his teammates better.
