Olney Central College freshman small forward DaQuan Lilly has been dominant for OCC when we have seen him early in the season. When his team needs him to take over the game that is exactly what he does. This freshman qualifier stands at 6’6” and is built like a defensive end with tremendous strength. Lilly bullies his way to the hoop with his strength and athleticism. The long and angular forward is powerful getting in the lane and finishes well through contact. When he is going downhill he is tough to contain! His length helps him be an active rebounder. Solid passer especially out of the high post where he finds cutters to the hoop. Has hitch in shot that will need to be cleaned up going forward. Mid-major and low-major programs should take notice of this physically dominant forward.
Lilly spoke about how it is going early in the season and his role on the team.
“So far I am just trying to get off to a good start leading my team. Doing whatever I can to help us win.”
He described his game and what he likes to do on the floor.
“I try to have a high motor at all times, play defense, crash the boards, and just be aggressive as much as I can.”
Projecting toward the next level what does he see his strength as going forward?
“Going to the basket and finishing strong. Rebounding. Those are my two main strengths right now.”
He updated us on his early recruitment.
“I have heard from Northern Kentucky, Delta State, Kentucky Wesleyan, and Charleston Southern.”
