In addition to our stellar regular Sports World coverage this week at Hi-Topper HQ we will be bringing you the finest College Basketball Season Preview in all the (Internet) Land.
To start things off we have our 2017-18 Preseason Awards.
Best Name with a Boring Game Award
Jock Landale – St. Mary’s
An old-school back to the basket Center with a old-school Archie Comics name. There hasn’t been a player this aptly monikered since Fly Williams styled and profiled through the college game in the 70s.
He’s Back? Award
Miles Bridges – Michigan State
Gotta See What This Guys About Award
Marvin Bagley III – Duke
Bagley skipped his Senior year in High School (the rules of NCAA eligibility- a mystery that might never be solved) to get to Durham this season. If slow-mo YouTube highlights of him dominanting 5-8 white kids is any indication he’ll be a cross between Larry Johnson and Joel Embiid.
The Other Super Hyped Freshman Award
Michael Porter Jr. – Missouri
Another Year of Grayson Award
Grayson Allen – Duke
The guy who could have been a Top 10 pick after his Sophomore year is back for his Senior season. What kicks I mean tricks will Grayson have for us this year? The redemption arc is there for the taking. What oh what will Grayson do this year?
2017-18 looks to be a great year in College Hoops. These are just a few of the guys who’ll be dominating the stat sheets and the headlines.
