He has been really good… will really be challenged Saturday with the height of LSU but he will give it 100%

Nice research, Mike.

I wish he could leverage this skill to up his offensive capabilities. He normally has such great rebounding position that I’ve been surprised that it hasn’t translated to lots of easy baskets on the other side.

Based on those stats, it looks like Tolson was our best rebounder. He got those 845 boards in just 3 years. An ave. of 282 per year. I’m pretty sure he also played fewer games per year than Sid, Miller, and Klein (also just 3 years). Dean’s per game average rebounds for those 3 years was 11.7, and he averaged a double double (11.7 and 18.3 points). Those are pretty amazing stats.

Nicky Davis was another great rebounder for us. He was only here for 1-2 years but he had a nose for rebounds.
