The former McDonald's All-American forward came into his own last season as a sophomore, taking home the conference's defensive player of the year. Chris Singleton seems poised for a much-improved season as a junior after spending the summer at camps hosted by NBA stars and playing on the USA Select Team. It should come as no surprise that Singleton was able to fill the stat sheet in this early season contest- racking up 22 points, 11 rebounds and 10 steals. He is a rare combination of size, strength and quickness and now, an improving and more aggressive offensive mind-set, Singleton is aiming to become a better player, a better contributor and an overall better leader.
With a pair of the Seminoles' forwards gone from last season (Solomon Alabi, Ryan Reid), Singleton must take on a larger burden of hitting the glass. But most of all, expect Singleton to lock down the offense even more for a team that led the nation is field-goal percentage defense a year ago.
