I thought this was appropriate for Halloween.


6. C.J. Aiken (Saint Joseph’s): Aiken, the Atlantic 10’s defensive player of the year last season, is a talented 6-9 forward whose defense will help St. Joe's compete for the conference crown as newcomers Butler and VCU enter the league. Aiken was fourth nationally in blocked shots per game (3.61). He was No. 16 in Pomeroy’s block percentage ratings. But it’s more difficult to track the plays he disrupted because he challenged an offensive player or altered a shot. That’s what his coaches praise most about his talents.

10. Briante Weber (VCU): Shaka Smart’s squad is expected to compete for the Atlantic 10 crown during its debut because of the gritty defense that has become his program’s identity. Weber, a sophomore, led the CAA with 77 steals last season, despite averaging just 18 minutes per game. He was first in Pomeroy’s steal percentage ratings (6.99), too. So he’s not just an effective component for a defense that was ranked No. 22 in adjusted defense. He’s more efficient than any player in the country.

11. Charlon Kloof (SBU): I'll just say this... You aren't gonna score if you're being guarded by Charlon. Simple as that.

Anyways... Happy Halloween. Hope you hid some candy from the kids so you can have some :evil:
