Simi had a huge performance against Team CP3, finishing with 17 points, 5 rebounds, 3 blocks and 2 steals. He displayed the ability to be effective at nearly any spot on the floor at multiple positions. Shittu displayed great ballhandling ability for a prospect of his size. He was able to break defenders down off the dribble and score himself or create easy shots for teammates on numerous occasions. In the post, Simi showed good footwork with his back to the basket. He utilized explosive spin moves before finishing with the off-hand and simply bullied his way through contact to finish on another possession. At 6’10 Shittu looked outstanding leading the break in transition, where he went coast to coast before finishing the and 1.
