Last season: 25.0 points per game, 9.5 rebounds, 43 percent from 3-point range
Surprise, surprise: Newman, last season's Times Player of the Year, is the heavy favorite to repeat. He'll lead the Times No. 1-ranked Vikings against tough Duneland Athletic Conference opponents like Chesterton and Merrillville, which will hope to knock Valparaiso off its perch. Newman's elite outside shot, top-shelf athleticism and defensive potential make him exactly what coaches want in modern wings.
