SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – University of Utah men’s basketball sophomore forward Timmy Allen received some high praise from a national college basketball analyst for his performance to this point in the season.

NCAA.com college basketball analyst Andy Katz listed the top-10 sophomores this season on his “March Madness 365” podcast.

“Timmy Allen had a monster game against Kentucky in Las Vegas,” Katz said on his podcast. “The Utes have been a little up and down, they are young. But, the bottom line is that Timmy Allen allowed Utah to be in the conversation in the Pac-12 and for a possible NCAA Tournament berth.”

Allen leads the Pac-12 in scoring with a 19.8 points per game average. He is also recording 7.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game, while shooting 47 percent from the field and 75 percent from the free throw line.

The other 9 players that Katz listed among the best sophomores in college basketball includes:

10. Isaiah Joe, Arkansas

9. Ashton Hagans, Kentucky

8. Mac McClung, Georgetown

7. Timmy Allen, Utah

6. Tre Jones, Duke

5. Tyrese Haliburton, Iowa State

4. Devon Dotson, Kansas

3. Jared Butler, Baylor

2. Daniel Oturu, Minnesota

1. Obi Toppin, Dayton

The Utes will return to action on Thursday when they host the Washington Huskies. Tip-off is at 6 p.m. and will be televised on the Pac-12 Network.
