Season:

Svetozarević is well sized SF standing at 6’7”. He has great athletic abilities, long arms, too,  but body has to be stronger. Very versatile offensive, can score points in various ways. Good driver to the hoop. Decent mid range shooter. But has to work on his 3p shot. Forces inside sometimes. Defensively, uses his long arms to steal balls from ball handler. Has room to improve ball handling. His work ethic is not on the highest level. Was a member of u16 NT on EC in Novi Sad.

Strengths

  • size and length
  • great athletic abilities
  • solid 1vs1 defense
  • offensive versatility

Weaknesses

  • still has a room to improve his body
  • ball handling could be better
  • not using left hand enough
  • 3p shot is not on needed level

U16 European championship 2018 preview:

New BC Varese player is ranked #2 in 02 ranking. Has the best athletic abilities in his generation. Played for NT already in Sakarya tournament in February. 6’7’’ SF wasn’t very constant during friendly games before EC, but Matija can be dangerous threat in offense, thanks to athleticism and versatility he has.
