A big time scorer from the state of Alabama, Lacey has put up huge numbers during the high school year. A kid with good strength and the ability to knock in jumpers, he can make good things happen on offense when getting buckets is needed. At this point he doesn't create much for others and isn't a super athlete, but he really can fill it up.
Strengths: Lacey is a basketball player who does a number of good things on the floor. He seems to always make the right play when not put in the position as the primary ball-handler. He never seems to hunt his own shot and always takes what the defense gives him. Over the course of his career he has shown his ability to knock down open and contested shots from the perimeter. Whether coming off screens, dribbling off ball-screens, or spotting up Lacey has a soft stroke with good range.
Weaknesses: The one area Lacey seems to struggle is when he is the primary ball-handler for his team. He has good size and strength to protect the ball but lacks that second gear to get by his defender or get himself out of trouble. Although he has improved, he gets loose with the ball at times and struggles when the defense speeds him up. The other area will be how his foot speed allows him to guard his position at the next level. Because he is not a great athlete he will have to use his basketball IQ and strength to his advantage.
Bottom Line: When you talk about this guy in the state of Alabama the one word that is echoed is "Winner". He's won two state championships and will have a great opportunity for a third. If he finds the right situation and fit for his game he could be a very good four year player who helps his school be very successful.
