Mike Glover was named to the preseason watch list for the John R. Wooden Award.
Nate Wolters—South Dakota State
2010-11 Stats: 19.5 PPG, 4.6 RPG, 6.1 APG
Wolters is coming off a great sophomore season, in which he finished No. 1 in the conference in assists, No. 2 in scoring, No. 4 in steals and No. 5 among Summit League guards in rebounding.
With Keith Benson gone to the NBA, Wolters is probably the best player in the Summit League.
Orlando Johnson—UC Santa Barbara
2010-11 Stats: 21.1 PPG, 6.3 RPG
Johnson led the Big West in scoring last year and finished in the top 10 in rebounding in the conference.
Last season, he scored in double digits in all but one game. On 16 occasions, he scored at least 20 points.
The 2009-10 Big West Player of the Year is certainly in the mix to win that award once again in 2011-12.
2010-11 Stats: 14.9 PPG, 7.6 RPG
Last year, McDermott was No. 1 in scoring among freshmen in the MVC. He also set a handful of new records, becoming the No. 1 freshman scorer in MVC history and the first freshman to be named to the All-MVC first team since 1952.
McDermott is the key to Creighton being a top 25 team this season.
2010-11 Stats: 18.4 PPG, 10.2 RPG, 61.0 FG percentage
Glover was one of two players to average a double-double in the MAAC last year.
He consistently dominated in the conference and is the preseason choice for MAAC Player of the Year.
2010-11 Stats: 12.5 PPG, 6.3 RPG
This seven-foot center took a backseat to Steven Gray last season.
But with Gray gone for the 2011-12 season, Sacre will have the opportunity to make his mark in the WCC. Last year, he was No. 5 in the conference in rebounding and led the conference in blocks.
In addition, he is a strong offensive post player.
