SI Releases It’s Breakout Sophomore List for College Basketball 2016-17 Season

Sports illustrated released it’s breakout Sophomore list for the upcoming college basketball season. Even though Luke Winn called Louisville “Sophomore Breakout U” there is only one Cardinal on this list of five breakout players. Luke explains that there is a reason why some players didn’t make the list. The Breakout Sophomore Formula—now in its eighth season on SI.com!—identifies scoring potential in players who didn’t put up significant points as freshmen, yet had promising advanced-statistical profiles. The formula strives to avoid too-obvious selections, and therefore its 2016–17 picks are restricted to players that averaged single-digit points last season and played not much more than 20 minutes per game. Check out the full article below to see who made the list.  Read the rest of this entry
