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 recently competed in the IS8 Spring League playoffs. He looked sharp and offensively skilled. He's a player we have watched quite a bit over the past three season. If he is able to upgrade his perimeter skills, he can be one very tough player to defend.

Darius is also a very competitive player. He is supposed to compete with the Long Island Lightning on the AAU circuit this spring and summer. This is a very important stretch for Gabriel who will get a lot of looks during the July evaluation period.
