The Atlantic 10 has cemented itself as one of, if not the best mid-major conference in college basketball. The Richmond Spiders upset No. 5 seed and Big 10 Champion Iowa Hawkeyes in the NCAA Tournament, while the Davidson Wildcats fell one point short to the Michigan State Spartans. While some A10 transfers have found their new homes, let’s rank the current players from the conference in the portal.
Michael Jones – Davidson
Perhaps the most talented shooter remaining in the portal, Jones is a 40.3 percent career three-point shooter. The 6-foot-5 sharpshooter was efficient at all three levels on the floor in 2022, shooting 46.1 percent from the field, 42.1 percent from three, and 84.3 percent from the charity stripe. Jones, a junior guard, tallied 11.8 points and two made three-point field goals per game for the Wildcats.
Jhamir Brickus – La Salle
A member of the Atlantic 10 All-Rookie Team in 2021, Brickus has been a constant performer for the Explorers. The sophomore guard recorded 8.9 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 3.3 assists per contest in his second season. Prior to entering the portal, Brickus led La Salle in assists, steals, and minutes played as a freshman, while once again ranking first among the Explorers in assists as a sophomore with 92.
Elijah Weaver – Dayton
Weaver, who has spent two seasons at both Dayton and USC, had the best shooting campaign of his career in 2022, connecting on 47.6 percent of his attempts from the field. The Cocoa, FL native matched his career-high with 6.6 points per game this past season, while making a career-high 36.5 percent of his three-pointers. Although Weaver will not fill up the stat sheet every night out, his almost 100 games of experience can help provide a steady presence as a role player in any lineup.
Javohn Garcia – UMass
The Minutemen guard saw a dip in production in 2022, but remains a 44.4 percent career shooter and averaged 8.2 points over his two seasons at UMass. Garcia will have four years of eligibility remaining and can be a valuable producer given adequate minutes.
Kam’Ron Cunningham – Fordham
Cunningham spent just one season at Fordham, averaging 7.4 minutes per game. Prior to playing in the A10, the Greenville, SC native tallied 10 points per game at Mississippi Valley State, including a career-high 34 points in 2021. Cunningham has the ability to produce at the mid-major level and should garner interest from multiple schools.
