Maybe it’s just me, but over the past couple of years, I think a majority of Louisville fans forgot just how athletic Peyton Siva was.
Maybe because he played most of his junior season with an injured ankle and didn’t have a lot of opportunities to showcase his athleticism as a senior.
If you’re one of those who forgot Siva’s athleticism, some of his numbers from the NBA Draft Combine should remind you. Siva measured in with a 33 ½ inch standing vertical leap and a 41 ½ inch max vertical leap.
As of right now that’s the fourth highest vertical of anyone at the combine. Former Miami point guard Shane Larkin is the only guard at the camp that had a higher vertical leap than Siva (44 in.)
According to Chad Ford of ESPN, vertical leap wasn’t the only area that Siva stood out in today. He also did very well in the lane agility tests.
