Summary: Notes: Led the Ohio Valley Conference in scoring (21.8 ppg), and was fourth in rebounding (7.3 rpg) and assists (5.1 apg). Originally declared for the 2003 NBA draft before withdrawing.

Positives: Great athleticism. Does a little bit of everything. His 5.1 assist average have some scouts wondering if he could be the second coming of Ronald Murray. Has a nice shot from midrange. Creates most of his scoring opportunities off the dribble. Good defender. Tough.

Negatives: Size is an issue. He's turnover prone. A very streaky shooter with questionable NBA three point range.

Insider analysis Minard has helped himself in workouts and at both NBA draft camps. Like Murray, exposure has been a huge thing for him. Reminds me a bit of another undersized two from last year's draft -- Willie Green. I think he'll get drafted, somewhere in the bottom half of the second round.
