The best player on each WAC team

This is something that seems in vogue now so PTW will take an early shot at prognosticating the most important player, the best player, whatever you wish to call it on each WAC 2012-13 squad.


* Chris Udofia, 6-foot-6 forward, junior

He's a do-it-all type and a lock for an All-WAC spot.


* Kyle Barone, 6-foot-10, center, senior

Is he ready to rule? He led the Vandals in shooting percentage, rebounding and blocks and was second in scoring but, as funny as it sounds, needs to show he can take over a game.

Louisiana Tech

* Raheem Appleby, 6-foot-2, guard, sophomore

The team's top scorer as a freshman.

New Mexico State

* Tshilidzi Nephawe, 6-foot-10, center, junior

It's time for him to come to the fore and be the centerpiece offensively and defensively.

San Jose State University

* James Kinney, 6-foot-2, guard, senior

Led the Spartans in scoring at 15.8 points per game even with Keith Shamburger on the roster.


* Sterling Carter, 6-foot-0, guard, junior

The best Redhawk talents are sitting out this season but Carter averaged 10.1 points per game as a mostly outside-shooter (190 trey attempts, 60 deuces)

Texas State

* Matt Staff, 6-foot-10, forward, senior

Staff put up 13.3 points, grabbed 7.9 boards and swatted 44 shots in 25 minutes per game.

UT Arlington

* Jordan Reves, 6-foot-10, forward, senior

In 24 minutes each time out, he averaged 9.7 points and 7.8 boards along with 57 blocked shots.

Utah State

* Preston Medlin, 6-foot-4, guard, junior

What's to write that hasn't already been written. It will be his Aggie team and he's going to need to be the top scorer each time out and will probably lead USU in assists too.

UT San Antonio

* Jeromie Hill, 6-foot-8, forward, junior

He averaged 12.5 points and 6.4 rebounds last season and those numbers will be expanded upon.
