Sun Belt Preseason Player of the Year: A.J. Slaughter

National Hoops Report Sun Belt Preseason Player of the Year
A.J. Slaughter, SG, Junior, Western Kentucky

Slaughter really came into his own last year as a junior. The homegrown product put up impressive numbers (16 points, 3.6 assists, 3.1 rebounds and 1.3 steals a game) last year and his a much bigger role this season now that Orlando Mendez-Valdez has graduated.

The Hilltoppers have become a constant in the postseason and with guys like Slaughter in the backcourt, WKU should, once again, be traveling quite a bit in late March.

Slaughter played AAU basketball alongside O.J. Mayo and Bill Walker on the D1 Greyhounds. listed Slaughter as a three-star prospect coming out of high school.
