Number 74 – Christian Watford, PF, Jr., Indiana

When you are the best returning player on a team like Indiana, regardless of how good or bad the Hoosiers were the year before, the attention spotlight will burn brightly on you. Welcome to the world of Christian Watford.

The Alabama native is getting better, there is no denying that. What is in question is his rebounding. He has to do better than just 5.4 from his position. Moreover, with Cody Zeller coming to Bloomington, Watford will have quality help around him. That could mean two things: 1. Watford defers to Zeller. 2. Watford takes advantage of one-on-one situations.

The latter is the more likely situation. Watford is a competitive kid. He’s skill for a four man. Indiana needs wins this season and it will require Watford to move his game into the star’s circle as a junior.

2010-2011 STATS: 16 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 1.1 apg, 1.9 TO, 42.2% FG, 38.1% 3 pt
