Six players who will score more next season

I was recently sitting and having breakfast at Another Broken Egg in Lakewood Ranch, Florida, talking to a fan about college hoops.

While we were shooting the breeze about the summer and next season, we talked about a few players who should be stepping up their game in 2015-16. That got me to thinking about it. Keep an eye on this group of six.

Wayne Selden Jr., Kansas Jayhawks

He averaged only 9.4 points per game last season. Coach Bill Self will be relying more heavily on his veteran guard. You can see his confidence rising already with great performances during the World University Games. Selden averaged nearly 20 PPG in the first five games of the tournament, where the Jayhawks, plus SMU's Nic Moore, are 5-0 in pool play.

Bryn Forbes, Michigan State Spartans

Coach Tom Izzo will get a lot more out of this transfer from Cleveland State, who averaged 8.5 PPG last season. He ranked second on the Spartans in 3-point percentage (42.7), and he has put on muscle. Travis Trice is gone, so somebody will have to step up in the backcourt. He may get more playing time if the Eron Harris situation is not settled (suspended due to a recent DUI).

Josh Hart, Villanova Wildcats

With Dylan Ennis transferring to Oregon and Darrun Hilliard off to the Detroit Pistons, Hart will be a bigger factor for coach Jay Wright next season. Hart was already a good scorer on a balanced team, averaging more than 10 PPG. Hart started only two games and averaged 25.5 minutes per game last season, and I expect more from him in the future.

Wes Washpun, Northern Iowa Panthers

The Panthers lost a lot of talent from last season's highly successful Missouri Valley tourney champs. Washpun will be called upon to produce even more.

Isaac Hamilton, UCLA Bruins

While Bryce Alford will get a lot of attention, I look for Hamilton to be a more consistent scorer after averaging 10.6 PPG last season.

Cameron Ridley, Texas Longhorns

He put up just 8 PPG last season. Myles Turner and Jonathan Holmes are gone, so Ridley, an outstanding rebounder, will have to put some more points up on the board. He shot 55.7 percent from the field a year ago.
