College Basketball has gotten exciting with the incredible plays we're seeing from the freakishly large and athletic Zion Williamson of Duke. This got Chris Broussard thinking he should break down his top 6 must-see NCAA Freshmen he's ever seen since he started watching basketball.
Listen Below for his list.
6. Chris Webber - Michigan Wolverines 1991:
Part of the Fab 5 and their best player. He led them to the Championship game against Duke which they lost but he was absolutely must-see TV.
5. Isiah Thomas - Indiana Hoosiers 1979:
His freshman year at Indiana he was spectacular. I lived in Indianapolis at the time. He was a hero and he led Indiana to the second round of the tournament and you knew he was going to come back and do damage the next year and he did. He led them to the National Championship.
4. Zion Williamson - Duke Blue Devils 2018:
Hands down #1 pick in the upcoming draft. This guy is incredible. I know he doesn't shoot it that well...With his athleticism and ball-handling ability, he should have success at the next level.
3. Magic Johnson - Michigan State Spartans 1977:
17 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists a night and led Michigan to the Elite 8. Magic Johnson as a freshman was must-see TV.
2. Dwayne "Pearl" Washington - Syracuse Orange 1983:
He was the MAN! He was one of my favorite all-time college players: spin moves, ball handling, the mid-range jumper. Short kinda fat and stubby, couldn't play defense but offensively he was a magician.
1. Kenny Anderson - Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets 1989
Kenny Anderson was the man as a freshman and a sophomore. He was the best point guard in the country. Led Georgia Tech with Dennis Scott to the Final Four. I swore Kenny Anderson was gonna be the next Isiah Thomas...
That's the list!
