Believe it or not, the college basketball season is already more than halfway complete. That means March Madness is right around the corner. The 2015 NCAA Tournament tips off March 17-18 with the First Four games taking place at UD Arena in Dayton, Ohio. CBS, TBS, TNT and truTV will have coverage of every game throughout the tournament.
Selection Sunday will take place on March 15, with CBS revealing which teams did enough to make the field of 68.
On a different note, it’s impossible to give every player on every AP Top 25 college basketball team the respect he deserves, which means there is at least one considerably underrated player on each of those squads. For some—such as Dakari Johnson at Kentucky or Cameron Ridley at Texas—it’s a case of a great athlete playing on a deep roster and not getting the type of playing time or national attention that his talents would warrant elsewhere.
For the most part, though, these are starters who put up strong numbers without proper appreciation due to the roster having more noteworthy players or the school not receiving the media hype of Duke, Kansas or Kentucky.Whatever the cause, these guys need more love, and this is our attempt to spread it.
Wyoming Cowboys: Derek Cooke Jr.
Wyoming has a smorgasbord of underrated players to choose from, as the Cowboys are the most anonymous team in the AP Top 25. A fair number of people know about Larry Nance Jr., and maybe Charles Hankerson Jr. rings a bell with some ears, but everyone else on the roster could be considered underrated.
As such, we’re going with the big man who is making 77.8 percent of his field-goal attempts.
Oklahoma State Cowboys: Anthony Hickey Jr.
Stevie Clark was supposed to be the point guard of the future at Oklahoma State, but the freshman barely made it halfway into the 2013-14 season before Travis Ford and company had seen enough of his off-the-court antics and dismissed him from the program.
It’s a good thing for the Pokes that Anthony Hickey Jr. wanted out of LSU and was willing to spend his senior season in Stillwater.
In addition to the aforementioned game against Memphis, Hickey had one heck of a game over the weekend. He had 10 points, nine rebounds and seven assists in leading the Cowboys to a big win over Texas.
Northern Iowa Panthers: Wes Washpun
A former Tennessee Volunteer—he played all of 173 minutes as a freshman before transferring to Northern Iowa—Washpun has been substantially more efficient this year than he was in 2013-14. While averaging the same number of field-goal attempts per game, he has increased his shooting percentage from 44.5 to 55.8.
He has also been much more active on defense, nearly doubling his steal rate for one of the best grind-it-out defenses in the nation. source: bleachreport.com
