Monk, Briscoe named Players To Watch in college basketball


Kentucky’s De’Aaron Fox and Bam Adebayo have received most of the preseason praise over their counterparts in UK’s Big Four, highlighted by their First Team All-SEC selections.

But today, friend of KSR and One and Fun author, Aaron Torres, gave Isaiah Briscoe and Malik Monk the nod over Fox and Adebayo in his “25 Players Every Fan Needs To Know Entering The 2016-17 College Basketball Season.”

Up first, Torres ranked Monk at No. 24 on his list. “Do you like monster dunks and freak athletes unafraid to embarrass the competition? Well then, Monk is your guy,” he explained.

Then Briscoe joined Monk on the list at No. 2, to which Torres wrote, “No player is more important to the Wildcats’ success this season than Briscoe.”

To see the entire list of 25 and read more on the two Wildcats, read Torres’ piece here.
