Adnan Hodzic, Lipscomb (Center, Starter)
Stats: 20.2 PPG, 8.9 RPG
Adnan Hodzic leads the Atlantic Sun in scoring and is in the top 25 in the nation. The Bosnian Mamba became Lipscomb's all-time leading scorer on December 11 with a 23-point performance at Tennessee Tech.
Hodzic led the nation in scoring in 2009-10 with 22.7 PPG. He has scored in double digits in 67 straight games, with his last single digit performance coming at Samford early in his sophomore season.
Picked as the Atlantic Sun Preseason Player of the Year, Hodzic has not disappointed. The senior has scored more than 20 points on five different occasions and recorded a season-high 33 points against Austin Peay in November.
Josh Slater, Lipscomb (Point Guard, Bench)
Stats: 18.1 PPG, 7.6 RPG, 4.6 APG, 2.5 SPG
Josh Slater has been a very strong point guard for Lipscomb. The senior from Nashville has scored in double digits in every game and nearly recorded a triple-double against Tennessee-Martin with 15 points, 13 rebounds and 8 assists.
As great as Slater has been this year, his assist to turnover ratio has suffered since last season. Last season, Slater had 1.78 assists for every turnover. This year, Slater is only dishing out 1.44 dimes for every turnover he commits.
