I believe the A10 gives an award each year for the most improved player. All returning Rams are eligible, but which ones are most likely to compete for the award? Who would you like to see compete for the award and how would that affect the Rams this season?

I am encouraged by what I hear about Will's improvement and what I hear about Procop's shooting. I think both Chuba and Ege can be vastly improved this year. Jesse, David and Nem can pick up their game if one or all stay healthy.

GO RAMS.

My vote here would be for Bunting. He should see plenty of time and could have the biggest uptick.

If Pekarek can find his shot and be an effective 6'7" wing player for us, he'd be the guy to get my nod.

You're essentially just listing players that make up our rotation. Has nothing to do with "A10 Most Improved Player" talk. Start with "most improved" for the team. This is one of several threads that will be looked back on in March with sheer absurdity. Be realistic, and somewhat grounded with an understanding of what these players have to offer vs. the conference.

Of course there's been a lot of talk about Tavares (coach, Petty, etc talking him up).  But if you look at what a guy has to offer vs. the conference, Slanina probably has a good shot of impressing.  He's got the size a lot of teams lack, and was starting to show signs of being a scoring option before he went down (he was actually 2nd on the team in points per 40 in conference).  If he can stay on the court he could be a 14 and 7 guy.  He was 15 and 7 per 40 last year, and while he won't play 40 minutes obviously, he will get some of the shots that left with the grads and transfers.

But aside from individual honors, the team has a shot at most improved team.  There's opportunity for a lot of guys to step up production.  And Slanina, Havsa and Bunting were 3 of our more efficient guys on offense.  I don't think Bunting's numbers would translate to a lot more usage (some), but Slanina and Havsa maybe.

We're on the same page, as per usual. I think 14/7 is a bit ambitious. I think I have him a bit under 11ppg in my predictions (which would be a large leap, nearly into Sengfelder's production)

Bare in mind, foul trouble and bad games can really cut into stats at the college level. To average 11ppg means you're putting down 16 as frequently as you are 6. And for Slanina, I could see him doing quite a bit of both.
