The 2019/20 NCAA College Basketball season tips off next Tuesday (November 5th) and Draftkings opens in style with their CBB $50K Season Tip Off with $10,000 going to first place. We have you covered at Daily Fantasy Solutions so jump on and enjoy the ride.
First in our series of top 10 players at each position is POINT GUARD.
(1) CASSIUS WINSTON, SR. (MICHIGAN STATE)
18.8 ppg, 3.0 rpg, 7.5 apg, .420 FG, .398 3PT, .840 FT
The consensus Pre Season Player of the Year by most media outlets returns to the Spartans not happy with just a Final Four appearance- this time he plans to cut down the nets on Monday night. The Big 10 Player of the Year in 2019 is fully healthy (battled a bad knee all last season) and if Michigan State wins its first title since 2000, Winston will be the reason why.
(2) MARKUS HOWARD, SR. (MARQUETTE)
25.0 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 3.9 apg, .420 FG, .403 3PT, .89 FT
“Unfinished Business” the motto of Markus Howards return to Marquette after he decided against the NBA Draft. Few players can carry an offense like the 5’11” senior. Scoring 25 points a game (5th in the country), he took 37% of his teams shots when on the court last year- shooting 40% from the three. He’ll once again be one of the nations best scorers.
(3) TRE JONES, SO. (DUKE)
9.4 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 5.3 apg, .414 FG, .262 3PT, .76 FT
After a disappointing loss to Michigan St. in the Elite 8 last year Jones immediately made his mind up to come back and try one more time to lead the Blue Devils to the National Championship. One of the nations best defensive players Jones will be looking to anchor a possible starting five that may include four freshmen.
(4) ANTHONY COWAN JR, SR. (MARYLAND)
15.6 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 4.4 apg, .393 FG, .337 3PT, .81 FT
After testing the NBA Draft waters Cowan Jr. has returned to immediately make Maryland a Big 10 Title contender and a Top 10 team in the nation. Second Team All Big 10 last season and Third Team in 2018 Cowan Jr. has also earned All-Defensive honors. Teaming with high potential center Jalen Smith- big things are coming from Cowan and the Terrapins.
(5) ASHTON HAGANS, SO (KENTUCKY)
7.7 ppg, 2.6 rpg, 4.3 apg, .467 FG, .275 3PT, .761 FT
Head Coach John Calpari thinks Hagans is ready for a breakthrough. The SEC Co-Defensive Player of the Year will be the floor general surrounded by freshmen wings and the player everyone else will look up to as Kentucky heads for another Final Four in April.
(6) DEVON DOTSON, SO (KANSAS)
12.3 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 3.5 apg .482 FG, .363 3PT, .79 FT
Pre Season Big 12 Player of Year candidate. One of fastest players in nation with ball in his hands.
(7) ZAVIER SIMPSON, SR (MICHIGAN)
8.8 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 6.6 apg, .434 FG, .308 3PT, .67 FT
Arguably the best defensive guard in the country. The consummate two-way guard needs to make an offensive leap if Michigan is to succeed.
(8) DAVID MORETTI, JR (TEXAS TECH)
11.5 pg, 2.1 rpg, 2.4 apg, ,498 FG, .459 3PT, .92 FT
First player in Big 12 History to shoot 50 percent from the floot, 50 percent from 3-point range and 90 percent from the foul line in league games. Runs the top backcourt in the Big 12.
(9) ANDREW NEMBHARD, SO (FLORIDA)
8.0 ppg, 2.9 rpg, 5.4 apg, .414 FG, .347 3PT, .76 FT
Game winning shot to upset LSU in the SEC Tournament. Gifted passer with a 50 assist rate as a freshman. Knows how to score but first job is to run the Gator offense.
(10) AYO DOSUNMU, SO (ILLINOIS)
13.8 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 3.3 apg, .435 FG, .352 3PT, .69 FT
Great shooter off the catch. Led Illinois in scoring as a freshman. Looks to become one of best guards in Big 10.
