Victor Wembanyama, Scoot Henderson Impress in Battle of Top NBA Prospects

Tuesday’s much-anticipated matchup between top prospects Victor Wembanyama and Scoot Henderson more than lived up to the hype, as both players showcased why they’re projected to go No. 1 and No. 2 overall, respectively, in the 2023 NBA Draft.

Wembanyama, a 7-foot-3 center who plays for France’s Metropolitans 92, finished the game with 37 points, including seven threes, in his US debut.

“He was amazing,” said Metropolitans head coach Vincent Collet. “What he can do with his size, his agility, mobility, not only his ability to shoot the 3, moving very well. He even made a couple of very good passes.
