Trae Young is the best player in college basketball, and second place is nowhere close.
Young had another stellar performance against Jamie Dixon's TCU squad on Saturday afternoon, leading the Sooners to an overtime victory.
Young had 43 points and 11 boards, which is a rather surprising number of rebounds for a player being compared to Steph Curry. With that performance, he proved he's in a class of his own--literally.

How do you top that?
Young also had close to ten turnovers, and no, that doesn't count as a quadruple-double. Still, Oklahoma gives Young the free reign he needs to be at this best, which is what makes the Sooners such a dangerous out come tournament time.
The freshman has the potential to beat you single-handedly, but we can't forget that Oklahoma has actually assembled a good team around Young as well.
