1. Jordair Jett (St. Louis) Can score in traffic. Can score from the outside. Scores in the clutch. Defends like he has to “eat breakfast 300 yards from 4000 Cubans who are trained to kill [him].” What else is there?
2. Dwayne Evans – (St. Louis) Remember the run this guy had last March? He’s gearing up again.
3. Chaz Williams (UMass) The Atlantic 10’s president of the “sharing is a good thing” club has 60 more assists than anyone else in the A-10.
4. Treveon Graham (VCU) Had a double-double against GW. Started slow and still netted 16 versus SLU. That in and of itself is noteworthy.
5. Kendall Anthony – (Richmond) In the three games since teammate Cedrick Lindsay went down with a season-ending injury, Anthony has averaged 24 points and the Spiders are creeping up the standings.
6. Halil Kanacevic (St. Joseph’s) Corraled six boards, handed out 6 assists and netted 10 in St. Joseph’s Philly 5 win at La Salle.
7. Briante Weber (VCU) Needs 12 steals to break the A-10 single-season mark of 108 set by Edgar Padilla (UMass) in 1995-96.
8. Devin Oliver (Dayton) Leads the Flyers in points (12.), rebounds (6.6), assists (2.2) and steals (.09)
9. Isaiah Armwood (George Washington) Injuries are catching up to the Colonials. Armwood averaged 16 points and seven rebounds in a pair of losses last week.
10. Matthew Wright (St. Bonaventure) Bona won back-to-back games on the road…Bona won back-to-back games on the road…Bona won back-to-back games on the road.
