As we close in on the start of another college basketball season, it is time to hand out some preseason awards. Today and tomorrow, I will be focusing on college basketball's freshman class. One of the most exciting aspects of the beginning of each collegiate season is seeing what role each of the top freshmen in the nation will have for their respective programs.
Some will be the focal point of an offense, others will be solid starters and contributors, and some will play a key role coming off the bench for their team. I now present to you the unveiling of the 2011-12 freshman class "Most likely to..." award list.
Part 2 of the awards will be released on Wednesday.
