Amine Noua followed up his impressive showing at the U17 World Championship in 2014 with another strong performance at the U20 European Championship. At 6'8, 220 Noua is a strong and stocky power forward, who knows how to use his size to his advantage. Noua finished second in the tournament in offensive rebounds at 4.3 per game. Although he is not the most explosive athlete, he is a quick jumper who crashes the offensive glass hard looking for tip ins and easy put backs. Depsite his stocky frame, Noua is quick and mobile, has good body control, and showed the ability to score out of the post with a variety of impressive moves. He has a good feel for the game, and knows where to be off the ball and when to duck in for dump off passes. He'll need to show some development in terms of a perimeter game to compliment his effective interior play. Noua competes on the defensive end of the floor, and although he is somewhat undersized, he showed some impact as a rim protector. He gained some brief experience last year at the French Pro A level but the majority of his career thus far has been at the junior level, but he may see an increased role next season.
