NCAA BASKETBALL 2015 - 2016 / PREVIEW / AANRADER / SI TV MAGAZINE: Het gaat Weer Beginnen!

Het misschien wel meest opwindende Basketball Seizoen dat er bestaat - het NCAA Seizoen - gaat als op een na laatste van allemaal van start. Ik ben misschien ouderwets, maar ik zweer nog steeds bij Sports Illustrated als bron van mooie verhalen, goede analyses, en nieuwsbron. Inmiddels is 'SI' natuurlijk allang niet meer alleen maar een 'Magazine', ze maken ook korte Films/Documentaires, TV-items, en natuurlijk is er ook een Website - of eigenlijk 'Familie van Websites' - met meer content dan een normaal mens bij kan houden   ---  SI.com   ---

Zowel SI als NCAA-Basketball zijn regelrechte AANRADERS dus, laat staan de SI-coverage van NCAA-Basketball..!

Hieronder de aanzet tot een lang overzicht aanPreviews, met de link kan je naar het originele artikel, en nog veel meer...


SI.com's 2015-16 college basketball season preview

Player of the Year projections Gonzaga's Kyle Wiltjer and LSU's Ben Simmons lead a crowded field for player of the year in 2015-16.
With college basketball games beginning on Nov. 13, we're rolling out our preview content daily. Fro the second year in a row, SI's Luke Winn has teamed up with economist Dan Hanner to use an advanced statistical model to project the top performing players, teams and conferences in college basketball. Check back on this page daily as we update it with our latest content.

    The most accurate projections in college basketball are here. We ranked every team in college basketball, from No. 351 (Grambling State) to No. 1 (North Carolina).

  • Four seniors and a star freshman highlight the first team, while the second team features plenty of Player of the Year candidates as well.

  • "SI forecasts [Gonzaga senior wing Kyle] Wiltjer to lead the nation in scoring and be its top high-usage, high efficiency scorer, while playing for a top-10 team. That's a POY formula." Behind Wiltjer is a freshman, LSU's Ben Simmons, and then three tiers of contenders.

  • "Evansville's D.J. Balentine (No. 2) on the other hand, might be the best scoring guard you've yet to see on TV: He averaged 27.2 points in Evansville's five CIT games last postseason and has averaged 20-plus points for the past two seasons." Balentine is the No. 2 player on the list behind Gonzaga's Kyle Wiltjer but ahead of a slew of major-conference guards including Ole Miss's Stefan Moody and Oklahoma's Buddy Hield.

  • "This could be the most international-dominated freshman class in college hoops history. Aussie import Ben Simmons (No. 1) projects as the top scorer, due to his all-around talents as a point forward and LSU's need for a new go-to guy in the wake of Jarell Martin and Jordan Mickey leaving for the NBA." Other imports and top projected scorers include Kansas's Cheick Diallo, Oregon's Tyer Dorsey and UCLA's Jonah Bolden.

  • "Allen struggled to earn playing time on a loaded national championship team. But the former Top 25 recruit is an outstanding shooter, and the flashes of brilliance he showed in the title game were a sign of what's to come." Behind the former national title game hero are a Notre Dame forward and an Arizona point guard.

  • Eli Carter (No. 1) began his college career at Rutgers, then played his last two seasons at Florida before electing to join Boston College as a graduate transfer with immediate eligibility. Behind Carter but still in the top 10 are two transfers eligible to play immediately for Louisville.
