  • Nelly Cummings, G, Sr.  – 14.5 PPG, 2.9 RPG, 3.4 APG, 1.2 SPG
  • Tucker Richardson, G, Sr. – 12.6 PPG, 5.6 RPG, 3.9 APG, 1.4 SPG
    • Richardson is one of the more well-rounded players on the Raiders, leading the team in steals and assists, while also being second on the team in points and rebounds per game. He had 20+ points in big wins over Navy and Holy Cross to end the regular season, but he’s a poor free-throw shooter, which could hurt in the tournament.
