J'Nathan Bullock - 35
J'Nathan Bullock is quite simply one of the best all-around players in the Horizon League, a distinction that he has earned through hard work, determination and dedication. Only the third Viking to lead the team in scoring in three straight seasons, he uses his strength and athleticism to create match-up problems for opponents at both ends of the court. A first team all-league choice last season and a preseason first team choice this year as well, his improved shooting range allows him to score away from the basket and his quickness lets him be an effective scorer and rebounder inside. Look for him to split his time between the two forward spots again this season.
