Is #24 on this list of the top players in college hoops for the upcoming season. Is that fair? Too high? Too low?
24. Jevon Carter, Senior G, West Virginia: Emerged as a reliable shooter for the Mountaineers last year scoring 13.5 ppg and hitting 39 percent of his 3-pointers. Dropped 24 on Notre Dame and 21 on Gonzaga in the NCAA Tournament. Was the Big 12 defensive player of the year.
JC’s ranking will be much better if he gets some help from the wing to lessen the defensive attention he will invariably receive. His numbers will also increase if he gets any offensive contribution from the bigs to again lessen the cheating on JC.
