Current aggregate mock draft rank: 64

Three-pointers per game: 2.6

Three-point percentage: 37.8 percent

As always, Gonzaga is a college basketball powerhouse that has several scoring options capable of making an impact during March Madness. But their best deep threat is Zach Norvell Jr., who scored 15.3 points per game as a sophomore this season. He led the West Coast Conference in three-point attempts, three-point field goals and three-point percentage.

He can create out of the pick-and-roll or off the dribble, though he is most feared as a spot-up shooter on the perimeter. Norvell has averaged 4.5 points per game on his opportunities as a spot-up shooter. The 6-foot-5 guard has added 1.0 point per game coming off handoffs as well. Among all D1 players who have had at least 20 opportunities on dribble handoffs, only 14 averaged more points per possession.

Playing for the No. 6 seed in the South, he will have a chance to make a splash in the tourney.
