DeAndre Mathieu, guard
2013-14 stat line: 12.0 ppg, 4.2 apg, 1.6 spg
2014-15 outlook: Mathieu was an overall asset for the Golden Gophers in nearly every statistical category. He was a top 25 scorer, finished in the top five in assists and field goal percentage, and was top 10 in steals.
His consistency and ability to make plays really helped Minnesota and first-year head coach Richard Pitino last season. As an all-around top shooter and assist man, Minnesota will look to Mathieu as a leader in his final season, hoping he can replicate his success this season and lead the Golden Gophers back to the NCAA tournament.
