Yogi Ferrell was a great field general for the Indiana Hoosiers in his freshman season. The team was stacked, therefore he did not have to score the ball that much. However, the team will be losing plenty of great players in the 2013-14 college basketball season, so can Ferrell be a scorer?
Well, let’s sure hope so. He will be one of the faces of Indiana in the upcoming season, along with Will Sheehey.
The incoming freshmen will be talented enough to make an instant impact and I am sure the Hoosiers are really counting on that. However, it is Ferrell who is a returning starter and the point guard of this team.
In his first season in college hoops, Ferrell averaged 7.6 points per game and 4.1 assists per game. However, he only shot 40.3 percent from the field and 30.3 percent from behind the arc. Those numbers need to improve if Ferrell plans on being more than just a field general.
He has all the talent in the world and he could easily be one of the best point guards in the nation next season, but scoring more than 10 points per game would be great and honestly should happen.
Sure, the incoming freshmen will be counted on a lot, but Ferrell and Sheehey are the leaders of this team now.
We will be sure to see Ferrell setting up the offense and dishing out passes left and right, but will we see a new Ferrell in the upcoming season? You know, a Ferrell that can score and be a threat on the offensive side of the ball? Indiana could really use that in the 2013-14 season.
