2) Travis Bader (Oakland): 166.6
2012-13: 22.1 ppg, 39.4% FG, 38.6% 3PT, 88.6% FT

The field goal percentage is a little low, but keep in mind that Bader is asked to do a lot for the Golden Grizzlies on the offensive end of the floor. Bader finished the 2012-13 season with a shot percentage of 29.2%, leading Oakland in that statistical category by more than five percentage points. He’ll certainly get shots up, and if he can knock them down at a higher clip he’ll be a fixture on the list.

Other bites:

Kendrick Perry continued his hot start at the Kennesaw State Tournament. He finished the three days with 66 points, 18 rebounds and 17 assists, as Youngstown State went 3-0 after taking out Eastern Kentucky 75-67 on Sunday. Youngstown State may have been flying a little under the radar in the Horizon League, given the addition of Oakland and all the love put to Green Bay and Wright State. But the Penguins have proven that they will have one man that is going to be difficult for any team to stop.
