Randal Falker (pictured), Matt Shaw
The free-spirited Falker was the beast of the Missouri Valley last season, averaging 12.3 points, 7.7 rebounds and 2.1 blocks en route to winning the conference's defensive player of the year honors. Shaw was a steady inside-out presence at the four position, scoring 11.3 points and grabbing 5.7 rebounds per game. He and Falker form the best mid-major forward duo in the country.
