Not too many changes in the Top 5 this week, but we do have a new face. With a large slate of A10 games tomorrow, the best of the best will solidify their spot in the Top 5.In our weekly series, A10talk staff writer Stephen Hamilton ranks the top players in the Atlantic 10. Enjoy!
DeAndre Bembry, St. Joe’s– Bembry keeps the number one spot again after another solid performance. He had 18 points along with 5 rebounds and 3 assists in a losing effort. With Duquesne next up, we expect Bembry to keep chugging.
Isaiah Miles, St. Joe’s- A poor shooting night keeps Miles at the two spot. Miles shot 2-7 from three, but still finished with 19 points and 4 rebounds. If Miles can return to normal form from three, he could steal that top spot.
Jack Gibbs, Davidson– Gibbs rebounded against Fordham from a sloppy shooting performance. The junior guard tallied 21 points and 7 assists. Gibbs shot 4-9 from three, something we’ve come to expect from Gibbs. With GW up next, Gibbs will look to make a final push for the number one spot.
Melvin Johnson, VCU– Everyone is entitled to a bad shooting game, so we give a pass to Melvin. While he did score 16 points, Johnson went 0-4 from three. We’re not used to seeing this from Melvin, so look for him to rebound at Dayton.
Marcus Posley, St. Bonaventure– With Jaylen Adams having a off-game, I expected for Charles Cooke to replace him. Marcus Posley had other plans. Posley dropped 47 in a win over St. Joe’s. While it might be too late for Posley, we wanted to show him some love.
