Momo Jones, Iona
Jones has been nothing short of spectacular in his senior season. HIs 22.2 points per game lead the MAAC and are good enough for No. 4 in the nation. Meanwhile, he is shooting a conference-best 89.4 percent from the foul line while also averaging 4.1 assists and 1.3 steals per contest. Jones is the most valuable piece to Iona's success.
Billy Baron, Canisius
Baron, who followed his father, Canisius head coach Jim Baron, from Rhode Island to Buffalo, immediately became a sensation in the MAAC, and he has been an integral part of the Golden Griffins' outstanding turnaround. Baron leads the conference in assists with 5.7 dimes per game, and he is also No. 5 in the MAAC with 16.4 points. He is also No. 10 in three-point shooting, draining triples at a 39.8 percent clip, and his 4.6 rebounds per contest put him in the top 20.
Erik Etherly, Loyola (MD)
Etherly was a hot pick for Player of the Year in the preseason, but the senior has been hampered by an injury that has made his season slightly disappointing. Although he is averaging career highs of 15.4 points and 1.4 steals per game, his rebounds, assists, blocks and field-goal percentage have all fallen. However, Etherly has been much better since returning from the injury. In his first five MAAC contests, he is averaging 17.6 points and six rebounds.
O.D. Anosike, Siena
Anosike is not the most talented forward in the conference, but his numbers the past two seasons have been phenomenal. After averaging a double-double last season while leading the nation in rebounding, Anosike is repeating those accomplishments this year. With 11.6 rebounds per game, he is No. 3 in the nation and easily No. 1 in the MAAC. His 13 points per game put him at No. 12 in the MAAC, and he is second in field-goal shooting at 52.9 percent.
Sean Armand, Iona
Armand has had a breakout season as he has emerged as Iona's No. 2 option after Jones. The junior is averaging 18.9 points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.3 steals while shooting 43.6 percent on three-pointers. Armand has been quite reliable this season after a streaky sophomore year, scoring in double figures in all but one contest and reaching at least 20 points six times.
Juan'ya Green, Niagara
Green received some national attention last season after being the No. 2 scorer among freshmen with 17.7 points per game. This year, Green's scoring is down to 16.2 points, but he has become a better all-around player with 4.6 assists and only three turnovers per contest compared to last year's 3.5 giveaways. Green is also shooting 43.1 percent from the field and 37 percent from beyond the arc.
