The Kansas State Wildcats will be losing their two leading scorers from last year’s NCAA tournament team. However, some talent will be coming back, including Will Spradling. So, can he breakout in his senior year and help lead the Wildcats to victory?

Spradling only shot the ball 5.7 times a game on average, which resulted in 7.4 points per game. Well, with the two leading scorers gone, Spradling should get some more looks and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he saw the court more.

He shot 35.9 percent from behind the arc last season and made 46 threes in the process. Who knows how many he will drain in the upcoming season, but you would imagine that he would get more attempts from behind the arc or anywhere on the court for that matter.

Bruce Weber is a great coach and he gets the most out of his players, which will be the case with Spradling in his final year in college hoops.

Spradling may not lead the team in scoring next season, but he is still capable of that feat.

Unlike last season, Kansas State will likely not win a Big 12 title, but if players like Spradling can breakout and have a big season, you never know.

One thing is for sure, and that is the fact that the Wildcats will have to find a new go-to guy and a new field general. With plenty of talent left on the team, that should not take Weber too long to figure out once the 2013-14 college basketball season actually starts. Spradling could very well fill both of those roles, though.
