MARK MADNESS | Mark Adams counts down to No. 1 in ASN's top 100 players
10. Jalen Adams | UConn
While his regular season numbers were OK (7.3 ppg, 2.6 rpg, 2.4 apg) the sophomore turned it up and made the AAC All-Tournament Team.
9. Rodney Purvis | UConn
The Huskies boast depth and experience in the backcourt with the return of this talented senior guard. Huskies are Top 10 good.
8. Amida Brimah | UConn
This shot-blocking senior continues to add layers to his game. He makes UConn elite along with many other weapons.
7. E.C. Matthews | Rhode Island
The dynamic junior returns after injury-riddled season. Could play anywhere! E.C. makes Dan Hurley’s Rams "Extra Credible" come tourney time!
6. Rokas Gustys | Hofstra
This big, tough junior is a double-double machine (13.5 ppg, 13 rpg). He had six 20-rebound games last season. A Lithuanian locomotive carries the load for the Pride.
5. Giddy Potts | Middle Tennessee
The senior returns after leading the nation in 3-point shooting (50.6%). He scored 19 points on 3-of-5 3-pointers in NCAA Tournament shocker against Michigan State.
4. Kevin Hervey | UT Arlington
Before his knee injury last season, I pegged UT Arlington as a Cinderella. I love this junior's game! A major talent!
3. Jack Gibbs | Davidson
The senior might be best scoring guard in the country (23.5 PPG, sixth in the nation last season). Laugh at your own peril.
2. Evan Bradds | Belmont
The senior and Ohio Valley Player of the Year is nearly a double-double guy (17.6 ppg, 9.2 rpg) who deserves Wooden Award look. Most consistent player in the country.
1. Alec Peters | Valparaiso
The best all-around player in America (18.4 ppg, 8.4 rpg, 50.5% FG, 44% 3 PT) and one of my favorites. Versatile with size. The senior hit 91 3-pointers last season, the most of any Division I player of his height (6-9) or taller.
