Roper can’t seem to get into a groove on the court for the Wildcats. His time on the court is promising, however. He’s hitting 3-pointers at a strong rate this season, though he does not take many. Pound-for-pound, he’s one of the better rebounding guards the Wildcats have.
Roper has struggled with turnovers and committing fouls this season, however.
