Three NCAA Players Bound for Big Things in the NBA

We’re just getting to the good part of the NCAA basketball schedule, in the lead up to the conference championships and March Madness, which means there’s no better time for Fantasy basketball players to get a grip on which names they will need to know ahead of the 2015 NBA Draft.

Some players have proven they’re exactly who we were expecting them to be this season. Jahlil Okafor has dominated. Frank Kaminsky could beat Okafor for the Wooden Award this season. And junior Willie Cauley-Stein is the elite defender we knew he was when the season started. But who else has stepped up and could sneak into the NBA lottery picks in the 2015 NBA Draft?

D’Angelo Russell, PG/SG, Ohio State Buckeyes: Nobody saw Russell coming this season, but they certainly know his name now. The Ohio State freshman guard has exploded for averages of 19.1 points, 5.8 rebounds and 5.5 assists while shooting better than 43 per cent from beyond the arc and accumulating some of the finest highlights from college hoops this season (see video below). According to CBS, Russell is now the third-best prospect in the NCAA. This kid’s draft stock is on the rise, baby!

Kevon Looney, PF, UCLA Bruins: Looney has also come out of nowhere to be a top-ranked prospect, should he declare as expected, in the 2015 NBA Draft. The 6’9” freshman has drawn a variety of comparisons to a top 10 pick from last year’s draft, Noah Vonleh. Vonleh’s Charlotte Hornets are listed at +10,000 at TopBet to win their conference, but the big man’s rebounding and blocking continue to look promising for a Hornets team that is playing the long game at this point. Looney would provide a similar value to one of the teams tanking out the rest of their NBA schedules at the moment. This dynamic young star should be a top 10 pick in this year’s draft — unless he shocks the world by opting to return to Westwood.

Jerian Grant, PG, Notre Dame Fighting Irish: Notre Dame is having a resurgence in the ACC and that starts and ends with its explosive point guard. As the leader of one of the best offenses in the country, Grant is averaging 16.8 points and 6.3 assists after missing a season on academic suspension, so there is an upside-downside to his age (23). As a late bloomer, his window will be shorter in the NBA, but the way he’s playing now, and with the added maturity of an extra couple years, he may be able to produce sooner than later under basketball’s brightest lights.

Now it’s your turn. Which top NBA prospects will you be watching as we head towards March Madness?

Podcast: Hot Corner Dilemmas

March 22, 2013 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
This week, there was a new twist on RotoRob’s Fantasy Baseball Weekly Podcast (heard every Thursday at 9 p.m. EST): RotoRob was MIA. Well, he wasn’t really missing. He was sitting on his ass watching March Madness, which takes precedence over everything. Sorry. That’s just how he rolls. In his tead, Tim took over the hosting duties and his guest was actor and Fantasy baseball lover Ian Kahn. You may know Ian from such TV series as Suits, As the World Turns and Dawson’s Creek. Check out his entire body of work here.
