Thinking about the freshman of the year

Odyssey Sims makes a strong case. She’s picked up her third Big 12 Freshman of the Week honor, and seems to be getting better with every game.

But then there’s “speedy” Meighan Simmons, who seems to have elevated the entire Tennessee team with her play. She’s also falling into the point guard role, which the Vols need.

It’s exciting to see young players enter their college years on fire. (And in the case of Brittney Griner, she’s still ripping it up).

Bonus: USA Today/ESPN top 25.


  1. i'm keeping my eye on frosh shoni shimmel of louisville. a young pg with a strong body, can hit the 3 pretty consistently, will slash to the basket, good court vision and has a good coach in jeff walz. she has lots of upside.
