Top 3 Pac 12 Frontcourts

Published on February 25, 2013 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

1. Colorado

Leading the way for the Buffaloes will be power forward Andre Roberson (11. 6 ppg). He averaged a double double last season and finished 3rd in the nation in rebounding. Roberson tied the league for block shots in the Pac 12 and led his team in steals. He even added a three point shot to his arsenal. Still he is very underrated nationally. Likely starting at center will be freshman Josh Scott. Scott is a top 100 recruit from Colorado. Providing depth for the Buffaloes will be Shane Harris-Tunks(2.7 ppg) and freshman Wesley Gordon.

2. Oregon

The unquestioned leader of this team will be small forward E.J. Singler (13. 6 ppg). Singler is a very versatile scorer and he was actually the team’s leading rebounder last season. Joining Singer in the frontcourt is seniors Tony Woods (6.8 ppg) and Carlos Emory (6.8 ppg). Woods is a very physical player at center but he needs to become a better scorer. Emory like Singler is a very versatile scorer. Both should produce more with more playing time. Providing depth here will be a bunch of freshman in Austin Kuemper, Arik Armstead, and Ben Carter. Armstead is currently on the football team. This unit could receive a huge boost if the NCAA rules Rice transfer Arslan Kazemi eligible this season. He averaged a double double last season at Rice. Update Kazemi will play for the Ducks this season.

3. Arizona

Leading this team will be forward Solomon Hill (12.9 ppg), who returns to his natural wing spot after playing power forward lost season. Hill is a very versatile scorer that can score inside and out. He is also an effective rebounder; he led the Wildcats in that category last year. He also shot 50 % from the field last season. The rest of the frontcourt will be filled by two 5 star recruits. Be power forward will be Grant Jerrett, the California player of the year last season. Jerrett has great hands which allows him to have a very strong post game. Joining him in the backcourt is center Kaleb Tarczewski. He is a dominant rebounder and shot blocker. He also runs the floor well and is strong around the basket. The top option off the bench will be another 5 star freshman in Brandon Ashley. Ashley is very versatile. Also providing depth is Angelo Chol (2.8 ppg) and JUCO transfer Matt Korcheck.
