- Get my team mates more focused in game. (That's a responsibility for the PG).



I think 2.8 Turnovers is pretty good, considering you are the PG and the ball is in your hands a lot. You figure once in a while your passes will get picked off or that 1 time you sleep on 2 defenders and get trapped.

getting your rebound #s up might be a challenge unless you are going to put yourself in the paint more, and push your big men out to the perimeter.

I second you improving your midrange; just because midrange is my game, whether it's off the dribble, turnaround catch and shoot, step back, side step, up and under, fadeaway. I love the midrange. It's very under-appreciated.

You seem really worried about your stats, you shouldn't be. Keep racking up those trophies and Ws

Most of my TO's are in the pick and rolls cause my team mates pick but doesn't roll to the open space so the other team always double me cause of my long range and "being a star" (althought i don't consider me a star).
Rebounding is a thing to improve cause most of the times i don't even get in rebound fight .
Yep, i'm always worried about my stats cause it's an important thing to go play outside Portugal .. when i was 15 i could went to Spain but i decline and now i'm trying to go play somewhere .. it's a possibility going to a high school in US in the next semester .. but no one give me infos about that high school.

little late but,

I want to improve my
vertical until I can dunk easily
overall body strength (main focus is core strength)
balance
flexibility
grip strength

And I want to be a consistent shooter from 3 and shoot at least 90% from the free throw line on any given day.

Yeah going through the HS would probably suit you best. Unless you think you've learned all that you can from that level of game. Then you may be able to play in an above average D-I school. It's good that you have the oppertunity though, good luck in your endevars.

I played many international matches for Portugal and with 19 i've already played 2 years at pro level (not a lot of minutes), I don't know, but i think high school would be the best for me

High school would be a great choice because then you can get used to the American style of play, which is more physical, faster and individual-based than international basketball. That way, once you adapt, you can dominate the college scene after feeling comfortable.
