The double-double is a statistical accomplishment that every basketball player wears with pride. A guy who puts one up has indelible proof that he did serious work for his team that night.
A player does have to have a substantial dose of talent to average a double-double on the season, but a lot more goes into it. He has to have teammates willing to give him plenty of opportunities. A coach whose system fits his skills and gives him enough minutes is also a major plus.
Some of these players have already averaged a double-double for a full season, making them obvious selections. Others are only now seeing the stars align for a potential breakout year.
And these players—presented alphabetically—are only a sampling of the potential candidates all over college basketball. Feel free to make a case for your favorites in the comments.
