No. 4 — Nevada senior center Dario Hunt

Hunt ran NMSU ragged in a 90-71 Nevada win in Reno. He was 6 for 9 from the field for 20 points and 12 rebounds. Hunt has always stood out as a shot blocker. He was second in WAC play last  year with 2.1 blocks per game but his 33 blocks were the most in the league. Nevada wasn't a very good defensive team, but having a player like Hunt on the floor is a nice luxury. Hunt was 12th in the WAC in scoring at 12.4 ppg and he led the league with 9.7 rpg. He led the WAC in league play with 9.4 per game. I think there are some good big men in the league this year and with the return of Wendell McKines, Hunt, Joaquim, Will Carter and maybe Brady Jardine could make for a good battle for the rebounding king. From Nevada's standpoint, I think guard Deonte Burton is their best player, but Hunt could be their most important player.

No. 6 — Hawaii junior center Vander Joaquim
No. 7 — Nevada senior forward Olek Czyz
No. 8 — New Mexico State senior point guard Hernst Laroche
No. 9 — Idaho junior center Kyle Barone
