Robert Sacre NBA Draft Profile

Robert Sacre NBA Draft Profile

Robert Sacre, Senior, Center, Gonzaga



Robert Sacre was not the type of big man who was physically ready to set foot on a college campus and immediately make an impact. As a freshman he did earn ten starts, but he averaged a mere 9.3 minutes per game. For the 7-0, 260 pound Canadian, getting into playing shape was the more important goal. Sacre did earn some valuable experience and that paid off later. Yet, later turned into a little later than most hoped after Sacre spent most of the 2008-2009 season on the sidelines with a broken foot.

As a redshirt sophomore, Sacre was healthy and ready to play a lot more minutes. He averaged over 25 minutes per game that season and tallied 10.3 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game. During the 2010-2011 campaign Sacre took the next step and averaged 12.5 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.9 blocks.

Final Projection:

For a seven-footer, Sacre has a nice touch on his mid-range jumper and most opposing centers cannot effectively guard him on the perimeter and in the paint. That will not be as easy for Sacre at the next level since he is not the strongest player around, but he is continuing to gain strength and has become more than just a big body who can take up space in the paint.
