Paris Lee was named the Missouri Valley Conference (MVC) Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the year for the 2016-2017 season. The Illinois State point guard stands at six feet and averaged 12.8 points, 5.0 assists, 3.6 rebounds, and 1.8 steals per game in his senior campaign. This performance earned him a spot in the 2017 Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, which is a showcase for 64 of the best college seniors in the country.
Raven “Ray” Lee was a focal point for the Eastern Michigan Eagles’ offense the past three seasons, averaging more than 15 points per contest in each. As a senior, Lee’s stat line was 15.7 points, 2.5 assists, and 1.6 steals per game, while shooting a dependable 86 percent from the stripe and 36 percent from beyond the arc. His 15.7 points per game landed him 11th on the Mid-American Conference (MAC) leaderboard.
Moussa Diagne is a 6-foot-11 center with a nearly 7-foot-5 wingspan who plays for FC Barcelona Lassa. Diagne was a 2015 NBA Draft candidate that has been a member of the Senegalese Senior National Team. The 23-year-old played for Montakit Fuenlabrada (Spain-Liga Endesa) during the 2016-2017 season, averaging 7.1 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 1.0 steals per game prior to switching to FC Barcelona (Spain-Liga Endesa) in January. With FC Barcelona, Diagne helped the team win the SuperCup and make it to the league final.
Tyler Scott has been a prolific scorer for the University of Prince Edward Island – located in Canada – since stepping foot on the court. In each of the last three seasons, the 6-foot-3 guard has averaged more than 21 points per game. Scott has been named to the Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) All-Canadian Second Team twice, first in 2015 and again in 2016.

Deon Edwin was selected to the MAC All-Defensive Team for the 2016-2017 season.
