Best player is tough.

KInda have to give the nod to the only player to log a quadruple-double.

Any guesses?

Interestingly enough, Towson's Jerrelle Benimon (One of our opponents on our way to the College Insider Championship) accomplished a quadruple-double while in high school.

UT Martin's Lester Hudson is still the ONLY player at the NCAA Division 1 level to have ever logged a quadruple double albeit against NAIA's Central Baptist on November 13, 2007. He had 25 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists and 10 steals in that game!

While I metioned Jerrelle Benimon, he was a huge reason why Towson accomplished the greatest one-season turnaround in NCAA History when they went 1-31 in 2011-12 without Benimon and improved to 18-13 the next year with Benimon!

Hard to believe Nick King only averaged something like 3 ppg last year. Either he was just unconscious or has turned over a new tree, much less leaf. If he keeps up that level of play I'd say it will be hard to find an opponent better. Off the top of my head I'd say Trenton Hassel would be the most consistent year in year out opposing player that has been here. I think he had a 10-11 year NBA career to boot.

I've never seen one player change the success of a team like Lester Hudson

It's not easy being the best, but around here it's tradition.
