In this way-too-early look at the 2016 NCAA Tournament, I’ll be giving my guess at which teams that made it this year will be missing out in the next. Whether due to graduating seniors, freshman superstars going to the NBA, or just plain not being very good, I don’t think they’ll make it to March.
It’s another long off-season, and as the NBA Draft looms large above the minds of many young men, there is one in particular to whom it doesn’t. Kyle Wiltjer, from Gonzaga, has decided to return for his fourth season of college basketball. He was a redshirt freshman at the University of Kentucky before deciding to transfer to Gonzaga one year ago, which has proved to be a fruitful decision as the Zags had a great year with him and Kevin Pangos leading the way. Next year will be a different story, as always, and I think it’ll be a good one for Wiltjer.
With the college basketball season at a close, awards are being given and history is being written. But with all the MVP, Coach of the Year, and various other awards going out, it’s time someone cover the important stuff … high school yearbook style.
