Collin runs the point for his team and sometimes will slide over to the #2 position, so it is imperative that he works hard on his ball handling. Even at a young age, he says, “my goal is to be a complete player.” On the court, he has the nickname IQ. That’s because his passion for the game goes far beyond just wanting to play. Collin study’s the game at all levels (HS, college, and NBA), and he tries to incorporate what he learns into his own game.

One of the ways Collin trains is with his POWERHANDZ products. “I love my Powerhandz pop-up defenders as they give me a different way to work on my ball handling, and to attack the basket,” said Tjin. “I am also a huge fan of the Powerhandz dribble sleeve, and gloves as they challenge me and helps me improve my handles”
