NCAA Basketball has plenty of talented players. Today, we’re looking at two forwards: K-State’s Dean Wade and Marquette’s Sam Hauser.

Hiding beneath the cloak of NFL training camp, college football preseason polls, and the MLB stretch run is a looming college basketball season that is poised to grab headlines. Duke has at least three one-and-done lottery picks, Kansas lost its three leading scorers from last year’s Final Four roster and somehow might be better in 2018-19, and the Big East is still trying to wrest control away from Villanova, the annual conference bully.

Looking past the top teams and storylines though, there are countless fascinating players scattered all over the country. Over the next few weeks – in a series affectionately called “who ya got?” – we’ll analyze and compare the players who will have the biggest impact on the 2018-19 campaign. On Wednesday, we kicked off the series by breaking down the Luke MayeEthan Happ debate.

Next, we have two supremely talented statistical darlings: Kansas State’s Dean Wade and Marquette’s Sam Hauser. Here are the numbers to know.
