5’8 Tylik Evans

As a freshman last season Evans skills did not go unnoticed as he was named the GCAA Freshman of the Year as well as 2nd Team All-Conference.  Evans is a lightning quick guard that has the ability to break down his defender almost at will getting into the paint to score or drop it off to a teammate for a finish.  As a shooter to say Evans has range would be an understatement and he seems to always step up to hit a gut wrenching 3 at times in games when other teams are making a comeback to help put them away.  Evans is a ball hawk on the defensive end averaging 3.5 steals per game including 11 games of 4 or more steals.

6’8 Kyvon Davenport

As a freshman Davenport was named to the GCAA All Freshman team as well as 2nd Team All Conference.  Davenport is a high energy player who runs the floor well and finishes at the rim. He has elite level athleticism with great length and energy that makes him a constant factor on both sides of the ball. Davenport can hit the 15 foot jumper as well as step back for a 3. He has an array of post moves inside and is an elite level rebounder who can rebound in and outside of his area.  On the defensive end of the floor Davenport is a rim protector who averaged 2.6bpg with 14 games of 3 or more blocks including 6 games of 5 or more blocks.
