While the season didn't end the way Howard wanted with an abrupt loss to Murray State in the NCAA Tournament, it was an incredible year of individual accomplishments for the 5-11 point guard. He led the Big East in regular season scoring at 25.0 PPG, a mark that was good enough for sixth in the nation. Howard was unanimously selected to the all-Big East first team en route to Big East Player of the Year honors, and also was named a second-team All-American. Howard and the Golden Eagles finished second in their conference with a Big East record of 12-6 before getting knocked out of the postseason as a No. 5-seed. It was a young team that will now presumably return all five starters, as Howard's announcement answers the largest lingering question. Howard should be one of the nation's top fantasy assets in 2019-20, as he's plenty capable of providing assists, rebounds and steals in addition to elite scoring. He and the Golden Eagles should be early favorites to win the conference.
