Although the Indiana Hoosiers missed out on the 2014 NCAA tournament, Yogi Ferrell is coming off of a monster season. Fans can expect him to be even better in the 2014-15 season, which could lead to him being the Big Ten‘s best player.

This past season, Ferrell managed to put up 17.3 points per game, 3.0 rebounds per game and 3.9 assists per game. He also made 88 threes on 40 percent shooting from behind the arc. You can definitely say that the field general had a breakout season. The previous year, he only averaged 7.6 points per game. Indiana was also one of the best teams in the country that year.

Ferrell sometimes went under-the-radar this past season, but that tends to happen when your team is nowhere near as good as the top five or so teams in the conference. Who knows where the Hoosiers will finish in the upcoming season, but Ferrell should get more attention no matter what.

He is now considered a veteran and no one can overlook the great season he just had. He has the talent to have an even better one. Not only could he be the best player in the Big Ten, but he could be one of the best players in the country. Indiana having more success will play a huge part in that.

Unfortunately, the Hoosiers are losing players like Noah Vonleh. Still, the team has a solid scoring point guard in Ferrell and he will have to come up big once again if this team plans on dancing.
