NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. - With the emergence of Tyler Ulis, short is no longer a concern when it comes to elite point guards in the NCAA. Ulis tore up the college scene during his sophomore season, earning consensus first-team All-American honors, winning the coveted Bob Cousy Award and being named the SEC Player of the Year above the overall No. 1 NBA Draft pick, Ben Simmons.

For South Kent (CT) 2017 four-star point guard Tremont Waters, being overlooked because of his size became a factor early on in his playing career.

"The beginning of my sophomore year I felt that way," Waters said. "But my parents just stayed in my head, Coach (Kelvin) Jefferson from South Kent (CT), they just pretty much told me to keep working. There are a bunch of small guards out there and all the schools that need to see me will see me."
