When it comes to the shooting ability in basketball it has never been more important than it has been in today’s game. Every year we see players shooting deeper and more efficiently which can lead to high offensive scoring nights for many teams. Being able to have five players on a team that can all shoot will just help the overall spacing and pace of the game. With that said here are my top sharpshooters for the 2025 class part II.
Blackley is an excellent shooter that shoots with full confidence. He is automatic off the catch-and-shoot three-pointer and will look to come off of off-ball screens for them. Blackley can dribble around screens and wait for a play to develop before pulling the open three. A good shooter like himself always has his feet facing the basket no matter how awkward he is in the air for a shot. Blackley can hit the off-dribble shots and made 58 three-pointers this past season.
Torres is a player who when he gets hot from behind the arc can seemingly just take over a whole game. He made 9 three-pointers in a game this past season. At 6’4″ with a quick release can shoot over anyone and needs just a small amount of space to get open. Torres likes to come off of 0ff-ball screens for catch-and-shoot opportunities. He even has deep range well beyond the three-point line.
Rice has a lot of quickness to him which he uses to get by defenders for open shots. His favorite shot from the perimeter seems to be the corner three-ball. He has a smooth release that needs little space to get the shot off. Rice has good range behind the arc with the ability to break down defenders with his shifty handles for stepback shots. He’ll even use that in the midrange game making him such a pure shooter from all over the court.
Kreitz has a high release point and will look to shoot on the wings on the perimeter. He has respectable range that forces defenses to press up on him farther away than they would like. Kreitz is excellent off the catch-and-shoot opportunities and can hit those tough contested shots. He knows exactly when to call for the ball when it’s down in the post. Kreitz made 49 three-pointers this past season.
Nicholson is a left-handed shooter that makes it look easy when shooting from downtown. He uses his tight handles to get to any spot on the court with any shot he wants. Nicholson lets the pick-n-roll develop so he can take the open three-pointer. He has great range and can hit the tough stepback shots as well as anyone. His effortless and quick release from behind the arc is why he is such a calm, collected shooter from the three-point line.
