Kreklow is two years older, with a year of college experience. Kreklow does everything well and plays really hard. He’s a better shot, better defender, and better passer for assists. Kreklow will get plenty of rebounds, but Wallace is longer, and will probably turn out to be a great rebounding guard. Wallace is more athletic and maybe can finish better inside. He needs to work on outside shooting, defense and passing. He is terrific for a freshman. Kreklow is injured, and in that sense Wallace has more value at present.
They play different positions. Wallace is more of a point, but can play the 2 and 3. Kreklow is more of a 2 or 3, but probably could play point. It will all depend on matchups who plays where.
Montgomery loves having both of these players, you can bet on that, and this team would be much farther along, had not Ricky gotten injured.
