Maurice is an excellent scorer who can score the ball from anywhere on the court. He has a high basketball IQ and makes good basketball decisions. He handles the ball and penetrates like point guard and finishes above the rim like a small forward. Maurice is an excellent athlete who plays hard on both ends of the floor. He rebounds well for his position and has a knack for making plays on the basketball court. He has a nice shooting touch and he has a great midrange game. He moves well without the ball, and he consistently knocks down 3 pointers. His rare combination of size, quickness, athleticism, ball handling, shooting touch, and high basketball IQ allows him to flourish in the half court set. He is a team first guy who loves to compete and only cares about winning. He is a leader on and off the court.
