G—Scott Machado, Iona
Machado averaged 13.2 PPG and 7.6 APG in 2010-11. He has consistently improved since his freshman year and is ready to be a dominant player in the MAAC.

After an outstanding freshman year, Needham struggled as a sophomore. Needham still showed a lot of talent last season and he will break out of his sophomore slump this year.
G/F—George Beamon, Manhattan
Beamon was possibly the biggest surprise in the MAAC last year. He boosted his scoring average to 12.7 PPG, and, according to Manhattan coach Steve Masiello, he has improved his offense during the offseason.
F—Rakim Sanders, Fairfield
Sanders was a solid player at Boston College and he has the talent to be a dominant player in the MAAC.
F—Michael Glover, Iona
Glover is the most talented player in the MAAC. Despite being slightly undersized, he is still a NBA prospect.
