6. Workhorse: Kay Felder, 5'9" junior PG, Oakland

Felder played 91.5% of available minutes for the Golden Grizzlies, who were the 10th-fastest team in the country. That means he was running their offense for an estimated 2,392 possessions—the most of any point guard in the nation—and taking on an insanely heavy workload: He was the only D-I player who, while he was on the floor, took at least 30% of his team’s shots (for Felder, it was 30.6%) and assisted on at least 50% of his teammates’ field goals (he was at exactly 50.0%).
11. The Ultimate Specialist: Max Hooper, 6'6" senior SG, Oakland

Hooper attempted 257 field goals as a senior and every one of them was a three. As he told SI during this season, his role for Oakland was "not a circus act"—he was a vital weapon in one of the best mid-major offenses and a 45.5% shooter from deep. According, among players who attempted at least 20 field goals in a season since 2002, there have only been six who took 100% of their shots as threes. The next-closest to Hooper’s 257 is Iowa’s Devan Bakwinkel, who attempted ... 84 in ‘09–10.
