Seton Hall coach Kevin Willard

Seton Hall coach Kevin Willard, an assistant under Cooley with Team USA, kept in touch with his guard as he was displaying his talents to NBA teams. The workouts went well, Willard said, and the feedback received was positive.

"It was a great learning experience for Myles on understanding just what he needs to improve on, not only to get to the NBA but most importantly to stay in the NBA," Willard said. "And that's our goal. We don't want him just to make it, we want him to be able to stay and have a great career."

The native of Trenton, New Jersey, was 81st on the ESPN 100 recruiting list, coming in from Connecticut's South Kent School, in a Class of 2016 that included NBA stars Jayson Tatum and Lonzo Ball. Scouting reports are consistent in noting his ability to heat up from any range at any moment -- Powell and James Harden, with whom he's often compared, are the only players to score 40 points in the season-opening Wooden Legacy tournament.

He has had the opportunity to round out the parts of his game that need work, such as defense and distribution, in Peru.

"I've really been impressed with the fact that there's times where we've asked him to be a little bit more of a role player, a little bit more unselfish, and how much he's accepted whatever we've asked him," Willard said.

Some things remain a work in progress. Team USA couldn't hold on against Puerto Rico after Powell, already banged up coming in and with just two points in the game, fouled out in the fourth quarter of an 87-84 loss. A full-strength Argentina team ranked fifth by FIBA suffocated the U.S. from the start in a 114-75 defeat that saw Powell score just eight points on 30% shooting.

Groselle, who is entering his fourth year as a pro and played with Powell for the first time just before the Pan American Games, isn't worried about the guard's NBA stock.

"He's not selfish, either," Groselle said. "That's something that surprised me. A lot of times with guards like him, they start to get a little bit selfish. But he's not. He's willing to give the ball inside, he's willing to make that extra pass, which at the next level is going to be very useful for him."

The parts are in place, though. The "unbelievable competitor" Powell possesses an insatiable ability to not only be the best but to win, his coach said.

"He has as big a heart as any young man I've ever come around," Willard said. "There's not a person, a player that's been around Myles that just doesn't fall in love with the kid."
