BRIAN TOWEY'S VIEW OF DARIUS GABRIEL'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: Darius Gabriel is elusive off the dribble, capable of changing speeds and getting to the rim. He's been working on his consistency shooting the ball.

MIKE SULLIVAN'S VIEW OF DARIUS GABRIEL'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: Darius has plenty of talent to be a competitive player at any level. It's all about consistency and decision making. If Gabriel can improve these two key areas for any point guard trying to become an elite college player, Darius will get plenty of offers after the summer is over. Gabriel will run with the Long Island Lightning on the AAU circuit this spring and summer.
