Dominic James, a junior guard, was a preseason All-American pick for Marquette by Blue Ribbon Basketball Yearbook. His scoring average is down to 13 points per game this year but he had 25 points against Villanova and 23 against Notre Dame. He's also a nifty passer and recently had 12 assists against Pittsburgh. He did sprain his wrist in early January and also sprained his ankle late in the season, but he did not miss any games.
Jerel McNeal, another junior, was the Big East Defensive Player of the Year last season. He scored in double figures in all but three Big East games, but his shooting percentage dipped to 40.6 overall. However, recently his shot has improved, his turnovers are down and his scoring average is back to 14.3 points per game.
Wesley Matthews, also a junior, is averaging 11.2 points per game but has as many assists - 57 - as turnovers.
