Baton Rouge, LA (Scotlandville Magnet)
6-3, 170 lbs
Status: UVA Signee
Verbal Date: 2019-06-13
Notes: 2019 NBPA Top 100 Camp observations from Sabre Editor and Basketball Guru Kris Wright: He plays under control and makes few turnovers, in part because he limits high risks with passes. He can get to the paint and then find teammates, particularly out of of ball screens. He also showed that he could get shots up around the rim against taller defenders. Beekman finished Top 100 camp with an average of 4.6 assists per game, the second best mark overall. He had 23 assists with 11 turnovers in five games. Beekman did not shoot the ball all that well from deep during the event. He hit 6 of 18 3-pointers (at the old college distance) for a 33.3% success rate. That’s a number that will need to climb to maximize his potential in UVA’s system. In the limited viewing time, my guess is that he’s a better shooter than that percentage suggests and I didn’t detect a major hitch in his shot or anything like that. Mostly, it looked like he needed better balance and rhythm. Overall, Beekman averaged 9.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 4.6 assists in five Top 100 games. That’s the sort of stat-stuffing line Virginia fans have gotten used to with its lead guards over the years.
