    Newcomer: Wigginton
    Surprise: Zoran
    Decline: Nobody

    I don’t think anybody will decline because everybody is gaining PT. The returning guy I’m most curious about is Solomon. He’s proven to be a solid player already, but I’m curious to see if he’s going to be a 6 and 5 guy or something more.

    How can anyone decline? Nobody really had a big role.

    NWB is what MLB and fantasy football call a post-hype sleeper.

    Wigginton is easy. Feels like no one expects much from Beverly, so easy for him to be a big surprise, and no one had a big role last to decline from (as said above).

    Decline: Monte. I predict he will score zero points for ISU, and his assists will also drop.

    If you're myopic enough to only judge a basketball player's worth on stats alone, NWB is probably never going to impress you. If you're willing to allocate worth to getting the loose ball, playing defense, being sound all around, he certainly will. He has the physical skills to have an Ejim-like improvement over his junior and senior years, and even if he never develops into that type of scorer, he can help us win a lot of games.
