I love to see freshmen play basketball. They're so exciting. Soon I'll be a freshman, and I'm really excited. So, this is my all-freshman college basketball team!
C- Greg Oden. This was an easy choice. Oden put up good numbers even though he missed a month following wrist surgery. He averaged about 15 points per game, and used mostly his left hand. He made a huge impact on the defensive end, averaging 3.3. blocks per game. This is going to help him greatly in the NBA.
F- Kevin Durant. He dominated in his freshman year. He was the only player to be in the top 5 in both scoring and rebounds. He's a scoring machine. Durant showed that he is definitely a great all-around player, although we already knew that when he came into Texas and we know that when he's going into the NBA.
F- Branden Wright. With his 7-foot wingspan, he is a born rebounder. Last year he averaged a nice 6.2 a game, and he should have even more in the NBA. His 14.7 scoring average was second on the team, and he led the team in blocks. Wright was one of the best freshman this year, and he'll do well in the pros.
G- Mike Conley Jr. The speedy guard led Ohio State in assists and was third in scoring. Conley is an excellent floor general and is an excellent leader. Because of this freshman season, Conley's draft stock has risen. No matter where he ends up, he'll help.
G- Scottie Reynolds. This year Reynolds showed he can lead Villanova. He finished second on the team in scoring with 14.8 PPG. He looks poised for another big year. Twice during the season he got really hot, and his career scoring hihg is 40 points. He also led them in assists. Reynolds is determined to lead the Wildcats to a championship in his sophomore year.
