Perks Of An Upperclassmen

Timme is coming off of a scorching hot sophomore season where he averaged 19 ppg, 7 rpg, and 2.3 apg. Fast track to the start of his junior season, he is officially an upperclassman and has gained some valuable experience during his time with the Bulldogs.

In his two years, Timme and the Zags have made it at least to the Elite 8.

Last season, Timme shared the court with some exceptional talent in Corey Kispert, Jalen Suggs, and Joel Ayayi, all of which averaged 12+ points last season and are also now in the NBA. Even while sharing the court with such talent, Timme was still Gonzaga’s leading scorer.

As for the expectation this season, with 10 freshmen and sophomore players, Timme will be the unspoken leader of this team and will have a great impact on the court.

With that, if Timme can put up a repeat performance of last season and continue to lead the Zags to a deep March Madness run, his Wooden Award odds could be close to a sure thing.
