David Loubeau NBA Draft Profile

 David Loubeau

David Loubeau, Senior, Power Forward, Texas A&M


David Loubeau has slowly worked his way up the Texas A&M depth chart and has eventually turned into a key part of the Aggies squad. Back in 2008-2009 during his freshman campaign, Loubeau averaged a mere 13.5 minutes per game. In those limited minutes he proved to be a relatively efficient scorer around the basket and a solid rebounder. The 6-8, 230 pound power forward took the next step during his sophomore campaign, averaging 9.2 points and 4.7 rebounds as a part-time starter.

As an upperclassman, the Miami, Florida native finally stepped into a full-time starting role. His production continued to increase as a result and Loubeau ended the 2010-2011 season ranking second on Texas A&M with 11.8 points per game and third with 5.0 rebounds. For his success, Loubeau was named a third-team All-Big 12 honoree by the conference’s coaches.


Final Projection:

Loubeau is typical power forward. He will bang under the basket and that is usually where he stays. He is not a shooter and is not a threat to stretch out the defense with his jump shot. With Loubeau, what you see is pretty much what you get. He does some dirty work in the paint to help free up the scorers and shooters on the team, but mostly he hangs out in the paint, backs down the opposition to score and grabs some rebounds. It is worth noting that Loubeau drastically increased his free-throw shooting percentage during his junior campaign and that has added a point or two per game to his total. It also leads one to believe that he could develop a decent mid-range jumper sooner rather than later.
