21 players to watch in CBB

From The Athletic. Yes, it’s paywall. Nick Smith is #3 on the list. Says the Hogs have momentum now and Nick will have to perform to maintain it.

With this level of attention versus the much brighter national glare in mid Spring, Muss and staff have been given a few extra chips for motivation, if needed. It seems from the article the fan is ahead of reality in expectation. I feel we have more than one player (Nick Smith) that will be watched as this season begins and the “whole” becomes the focus as it does with any Muss coached team. The Atlantic, for a dollar an issue subscription is a bargain for any one with loose change.
