In this Year of the Freshman—a year in which so much discussion centers around names like Wiggins, Randle, Parker, Harrison and Harrison—it's almost quaint to be a junior or senior. The upperclassman may as well be a relic of a bygone era where the players' shorts were short and the cheerleaders' skirts were long.
Every year, though, we still watch and enjoy players coming of age, even if it takes two or three seasons for them to find a groove.
This group of players represent merely a handful of the juniors or seniors who are ready to find major roles on competitive teams in 2013-14. Whether they were overshadowed by touted teammates or needed to find the right scenery to succeed, each has the chance to emerge as his team's star and earn some national publicity.
There are certainly many others out there, and suggestions are welcome in the comments. Insults, not so much, so conduct yourselves accordingly and enjoy the show.
