Switch, and Teat will have the short-stick dancing. He’s able to create separation without flipping his hips or accelerating into a sprint -- which keeps his stick in a triple threat position at all times. The percentage of players who would see this pass in real time is low; of those, only a handful would be ready to make the pass when they saw it.

Even in a loaded 2021 College Draft class, Jeff Teat was the clear first overall pick.

Teat does so many things at an insanely efficient level already. He shot 39.1% off the dodge, regular slipping by the best defenders in the world for dunks. And he buried 44.4% of his stepdown shots. Teammates shot 36.7% off passes from Teat; his 49 assist opportunities were fourth-most in the league.

His chemistry with Mark Cockerton, reunited from the 2018 Team Canada squad, helped his transition from college to pros. If teams tried to trap Teat off the pick, he’d carry the double and hit Cockerton.
