Northwestern University is near Chicago, so naturally Northwestern State University is in Natchitoches, LA.
If you have heard of the Demons, it's more than likely in remembrance of their shocking win over No. 3 seed Iowa in the 2006 NCAA tournament.
But that team has nothing to do with current star, Jalan West. Unlike most of the players on the list, we might get another two years to watch West do his thing, as he put up those impressive numbers last season as a sophomore.
Granted, Northwestern State played at the fastest pace in the country last season, according to KenPom.com (subscription required). As such, his per-possession numbers aren't quite as jaw dropping as the per-game ones.
Still, we're talking about a player who had at least 20 points, five assists and five rebounds in four different games last season. A man who saved his best for last by scoring 36 points on 16 field-goal attempts in the Southland semifinals against Stephen F. Austin.
In an early November 111-92 road win over Auburn, West had 30 points, nine rebounds, six assists and three steals. In an overtime loss at Baylor, he played all 45 minutes and had 26 points, eight assists, seven rebounds and just two turnovers.
West has the skill to be the next player in the Stephen Curry and Damian Lillard club of mid-major players who become NBA stars.
