Haliburton averaged 7.9 points and 6.9 assists across 25.0 minutes during seven games for the United States en route to taking home a gold medal at the FIBA U19 World Championships.
Haliburton led the United States in both minutes played and assists, helping set the table for what's poised to be a productive sophomore season with the Cyclones. He was effective as a freshman with Iowa State, logging 6.8 points and 3.6 assists over 34 starts, but should be ready to take a major statistical leap. Iowa State will lose four of its top five scorers from last season, retaining only post player Michael Jacobsen, which leaves Haliburton to pick up a huge chunk of the backcourt production. His performance on the world stage now makes it less likely he'll fly under the radar as a top fantasy asset in Big 12 formats.
