Gonzaga’s Kispert makes Andy Katz’s list of stars to watch next season

Sports analyst Andy Katz released his list of rising stars to watch in the 2019-20 men’s basketball season on Monday.

Among the list of 11 players was Gonzaga’s Corey Kispert. Katz said the following about the sophomore forward:

Kispert was one of the most important players for the Zags down the stretch. Now, he’ll stand out with more shot opportunities. Kispert doesn’t shy away from taking and making the big shot, let alone diving for loose balls in his area. Kispert averaged eight points but his production should skyrocket this season. His 16 points against Baylor in the second round was an indication of what he can do on a regular basis for the Zags.
