5 Breakout Players from the AAC

Lester Quinones:

The Guard from New York who was part of last years loaded recruiting class for the Tigers, had a solid Freshman Campaign as he averaged 10 points, 3 rebounds, and 2 assists per game. Quinones best asset as a recruit was his shooting ability but he only shot 31% from deep last season, he can probably get close to 40%, he’s also a great playmaker. I can see Quinones averaging 15/4/5 this season and he’ll be an AAC player of the year candidate.

Morris Udeze:

The Shockers had Erik Stevenson (Washington), Jamarius Burton (Texas Tech), Noah Fernandes (UMass), Grant Sherfield (Nevada), and Ashton Midtgaard (Grand Canyon) all leave following this season. Udeze also entered the portal but ultimately decided to return to the Shockers. With Jaime Echinique graduating, Udeze will be starting and will try to expand on his 4 point, 2 rebound per game average from a season ago, Udeze shot 61% from the field which is great. With expanded minutes he’ll get more action naturally.

Marcus Sasser:

As a Freshman he averaged 8 points per game, while shooting 36% from the field, and 35% from three. Sasser will play a big role and will be asked to score more and get more shots. He’s going to have the ball much more. Sasser could definitely average 13+ and be an All-AAC player this year.

Emmanuel Bandoumel

The guard from Montreal, Quebec is 6’4” and 180 pounds, he’s a solid defender and can get to the hoop but only 34% from the field and 22% from three. I think that will all improve the talent is definitely there and Ferron Hunt will all get a ton of attention so Bandoumel was get many chances and he’ll expand on his 6 points per game average by a lot this season as the Mustangs are looking for a NCAA Tournament Bid.

Michael Durr

The 7-footer from Atlanta had 6 points and 6 rebounds per game in his Sophomore season and I think he can get much better than that as he just get more experienced and time will help. With a talented team with David Collins, Xavier Castenada, Ezacuras Dawson III, and Alexis Yetna, Michael Durr will get the chance to see the ball down low and on a smaller team like Memphis he can just get the rock down low and go to work.
