VCU junior Marcus Santos-Silva had an incredible sophomore season, seeing his averages jump to 10.0 points (from 3.1) and 7.4 rebounds (from 3.0) per game over his freshman year. He started all 33 games for VCU last season, and is poised to have yet another incredible season as VCU’s premier big man.
