With college basketball season well underway, a crop of Big Ten freshmen have established themselves as major contributors. Here's a list of newcomers to keep an eye on going forward.
Shep Garner scored 17 points, Payton Banks added 15 and Penn State tilted the court decidedly with stingy defense in the Nittany Lions' 72-50 win on Saturday.
