Quote by BasketballNcaa rates the year of 2016
Which player disappointed the most so far?
Stefano “Bobby” Russillo: Troy Caupain. He was the preseason player of the year in the AAC, and now he scores 9.8 points and shoots 24% from behind the arc and 60% on free throws.
Fabio Cro: Grayson Allen is doing everything wrong. And he was supposed to be the star of the season.
Stefano “Mac” Bei: Grayson Allen. His averages went down and he was under bigger pressure. And he is now suspended from the team.
Manuel Follis: Sacha Killeya-Jones. Who, you ask? That’s the point. He was supposed to play for Kentucky, but whenever coach Calipari put him on the floor things went awfully wrong.
Raffaele Fante:any conversation on Grayson Allen should and would include a number of profanities.
Riccardo “Ric” De Angelis: Grayson Allen. The fact that such a talent is torpedoing his own career is bewildering.
Paolo “Pablo” Mutarelli: Isaiah Briscoe is perplexing to me. He can attack the paint but he can’t shoot it from outside, he makes plenty of mistakes with the ball in his hands and he is an ok defender. I was expecting a lot more from him in his second year.
Name a player that could shine in the next months.
Stefano “Bobby” Russillo: Payton Pritchard, Oregon’s freshman. He is the kind of guard who doesn’t shy away from responsibilities (see the UCLA game for reference) and has the court vision and athleticism to make the jump. He already stole the starting spot to Casey Benson.
Fabio Cro: Aaron Holiday (UCLA) is growing, he is always ready when it matters.
Stefano “Mac” Bei: Justin Patton (Creighton). He will be a factor in the Big East and people are starting to take notice.
Manuel Follis: the Izzo therapy is working with Josh Langford. He will have at least one 20-point performance by the end of the season.
Raffaele Fante: Deng Adel (Louisville) and OG Anunoby (Indiana). Both sophomores and both could be stars soon.
Riccardo “Ric” De Angelis: Glynn Watson (Nebraska). He is an intriguing offensive talent, but he needs to be more consistent.
Paolo “Pablo” Mutarelli: Mustapha Heron (Auburn) is a scorer with good size and good shooting touch. He knows how to use his size to earn free-throws and is an above average three-point shooter. He is ready to make the final jump.
