Last week, we talked about some college basketball players who've underachieved to start the 2013-14 season. As anyone who's been to school understands, for every kid who slouches in late and proceeds to fall asleep drooling on his desk, there's a bright-eyed kid with his hand in the air to answer every question and ruin the curve.
Some of these 10 players may have been expected to succeed this year but are having starts beyond anyone's anticipation. Others are coming out of nowhere, putting up numbers that even their mamas would have thought impossible.
They may not sustain their hot early production, but each one opened eyes in November and worked his way toward the top of opponents' scouting reports.
