At 6'4", Washington plays longer than that.  He can shoot it from the perimeter and is tough to stop when he slashes to the goal from the right side. He's a Missouri Valley caliber wing who needs to have his motor rev a little bit higher on a more regular basis. When that happens, the sky's the limit.-Coach Max Ivany
