Villanova Player by Player Season Wrapup: Maalik Wayns

Maalik Wayns had perhaps the most immediate impact of any of the players from this year's heralded freshman class.  Inevitably drawing comparisons to Kyle Lowry simply because they both are point guards from Philadelphia that comparison is lazy to me as they are very different players.  To be honest, I think Maalik is better on the offensive end than Kyle was and can only get better if he improves his game from the perimeter.  Possessed with blazing speed with the ball in his hands, Wayns is a deadly weapon in the fast break and Villanova is better suited to go up-tempo when he's directing traffic.  I only look for him to become more of a threat on the offensive end due to his speed and ability to drive the ball on players much bigger than him.
