10. Alan Williams, UC Santa Barbara (LM+)
Per-possession, Williams' performance ranks with anyone on this list, but he only played 17 minutes a game for a team that lost in the first round of the CIT. Even so, he led the nation in offensive rebounding percentage (23) and ranked in the top 200 in defensive rebounding rate (21 percent). Williams also finished in the top 50 in turnover rate (10 percent, 20 total on the year) and just missed in block percentage (8). He is a big to keep an eye on. The Gauchos are rebuilding after losing star Orlando Johnson and second banana James Nunnally (among others) to graduation, so Williams will definitely get his chance. My expectations are high.
Sorry, this has nothing to do with UCSB basketball, but it captured such a great moment for Gaucho fans, that I had to post it. Gauchos forever!

The Indiana Pacers made one of the more underrated steals of the draft when they traded forSanta Barbara guard Orlando Johnson on draft night after he was chosen in the second round with the 36th overall pick by the Sacramento Kings. Johnson is 23 years old and already much more experienced than most of the rookies entering the league this summer, giving him a slight edge over most.
The 6'5" shooting guard averaged 18, 21.1 and 19.7 points per game in his sophomore, junior and senior season atSanta Barbara. During those three seasons, Johnson was also hitting at least 40 percent of his shots from beyond the arc. We have seen scorers take over NBA Summer Leagues in the past, so expect Johnson to make a huge impression in Orlando this July.
