Mardy Collins Profile
A jack of all trades, Mardy Collins was a solid four-year starter for Temple and projects as a possible point guard in the pros. As a junior, the 6-foot-6 Collins averaged 17.5 points, 5.9 rebounds and 2.8 steals for the Owls, remaining fairly consistent as a senior at 16.8 points, 4.7 boards, 2.8 steals and 4 assists. Named to the All-Atlantic-10 First Team in both 2005 and 2006, Collins finished his collegiate career fourth on the school's all-time scoring list with 1,919 points and second in steals at 290.
Mardy Collins Strengths
Versatile. Collins is an unselfish and intelligent player with sound fundamentals. Has good court vision -- makes the solid pass and takes good care of the ball, as evidenced by his 2-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio. Has a decent stroke with his mid-range jumper, though his range does not extend too far. Collins has long arms and good anticipation skills, making him one of college's best thieves. With his 6-foot-6 frame, scouts are intrigued by his potential at the point position.
Mardy Collins Weaknesses
Not an exceptional athlete... you won't see Mardy Collins on too many highlight reels. His shooting accuracy is his biggest known. He's not a good three-point shooter, as he shot just 29.1% for his four-year career and never really improved, despite averaging 5 long range attempts a night. Free throw shooting is poor as well, having hit less than 60% at the stripe as a senior.
Mardy Collins on the Houston Rockets?
Barring a trade, don't look for Mardy Collins to be called by the Rockets. We feel that the #8 selection is likely too early for Collins, though never underestimate Jeff Van Gundy's eye for defense. Collins wouldn't wow anyone wearing the Rocket threads, but he could be a solid player in the rotation.
