Combine Coach's Overall Comments:
 

The highlight of Basilís play was a few runs he made in the first match.  He did well to time some of his runs and he was alert to find the open areas and scoring chances.  His finishing ability was very poor and he had far too many open chances that werenít converted.  He also got into some good positions to provide assists, but his service and passing were both poor.  One of the biggest issues was his lack of fitness.  To go into a Combine or tryout and only be fit to play thirty minutes is unacceptable.  He never recovered from early injury problems and played poorly as a result.  The biggest point for Basil is that he has a lot of work to do in terms of training and playing.  He is not ready for the professional game and needs to keep training to improve all of his technical deficiencies and to speed up his decision-making with the ball.
