Standout Players to Start the College Basketball Season
Possibly a less familiar name than the others on this list, Dillon Jones has been a paint monster for Weber State this season. He started the campaign with three games of 20 or more points and ten or more rebounds, including a 29-point outburst in a comeback victory over Saint Mary's in Moraga, a victory that put the Bobcats on the map. He's among that crop of guard-forwards with the length to finish and rebound around the rim while also being able to drive the lane and occasionally find open teammates based on the attention he demands. Outside of LeDee, Jones may have the best chance among all mid-major players to make an All-American team if he keeps up this level of play.
