The Sporting News released their college basketball preview and made a smart decision in featuring UK’s Terrence Jones as the handsome cover boy. In addition, they named Anthony Davis Jr. to their first team All-American list and Terrence to their second team All-American team.
Not to knock the college basketball minds at The Sporting News, but I think the positions of those Wildcats would be more accurate if Jones was on the first team with Davis. I expect Terrence Jones to have a Derrick Williams-like sophomore campaign. If he can up the consistency of his three point shot and increase his rebounding numbers, while maintaining a high scoring output, there’s no way he’s left off any All-American first team. Similarly, I think Anthony Davis will be the most talented player in college basketball next season. Not only could he make first team All-American, he could win the player of the year award.
A front court featuring both Jones and Davis will be the best in the country, hands down. I’m looking at you North Carolina.
