Strengths: Savvy, pass-first guard who can get into the lane and score when he wants to. The left handed point has a very good off the dribble pull-up jump shot. Very good player off the pick and roll, makes great decisions with the basketball, rarely turning the ball over. Likes to spot up in transition. Very good at driving and creating for teammates.
Weaknesses: Sometimes will get overly aggressive in the half-court offense when shots aren’t falling. Not a high-level athlete, needs to work on getting stronger to make himself a more effective defender. Very good handle but needs to keep improving it to create at Division I level.
Overall: Funk has turned himself into a Division I prospect thanks to his high basketball IQ, by playing hard every minute of every game and by making his teammates better. Not the type to wow you, but gets more impressive over time with his consistency and maturity.
