Anthony Hilliard is a skilled, physical, and athletic scoring guard. He has the ability to create on his own, pass, and score, which helps him in pick and roll and one-on-one plays. Anthony can score off the dribble or coming off screens. He is an exceptional defender and is capable of pressuring guards full court, denying the ball, taking charges, getting steals, and fighting through screens. Because of his low stance, balance, toughness, anticipation, and discipline he is extremely hard to play against. In addition to being a great defender, he is a solid rebounder for a guard. Offensively, he keeps it simple using single moves, physicality, and athleticism to get by defenders. His 3-point shots, one-on-one game, and transition plays are his go-to offensive moves.
