Freshman phenom Trae Young leading nation in assists

Trae Young is turning everyones’ heads in pre-conference play, and for good reason. According to CBSSports’s Jon Rothstein, he leads the nation in assists.

Amazing Stat: Oklahoma freshman Trae Young leads the country in assists with 114. UConn has 112 combined assists as a team.

— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) December 24, 2017

He has more assists than some while teams, including the UCONN Huskies.

The legend of Trae Young has only just begun. He’s averaging 28.7 points as a point guard, which leads his team. Predictably, he’s also averaging 10.4 assists per game, and 1.8 steals per game.

He’s been shouted out by Lebron James, he only has one loss in college basketball, and he’s likely the next great one and done.

Thanks Big Bro @KingJames Freshman phenom Trae Young leading nation in assists Can't stop now, I'm just getting started!! #StriveForGreatness https://t.co/yAx04maPBH

— Trae Young (@TheTraeYoung) December 24, 2017

He’s also been compared to the likes of Golden State’s Steph Curry and earned praise from Russell Westbrook.

The accolades for Young aren’t stopping anytime soon. The season is just getting started, we haven’t even so much as touched conference play. His legend only has time to grow.
