Dante Jackson - Jackson never undertook a professional career, even though he probably could have done, working one year as a graduate assistant at Ohio State before returning to Xavier this season to do the same again.

With no other guard options on the bench - other than increasingly rarely used freshman Jay Canty - starting wing Dante Jackson fills in the gaps as an off-guard (and, on incredibly rare occasions, as a point guard). Jackson is arguably the Musketeers's best floor spacer, taking four 3 pointers for every one 2 pointer, and he plays decent defense to go along with that. Unfortunately, he's just not that good of a shooter, shooting only 34% from three on the year with a weird push-shot style of release, unable to create his own shot, and without particularly good ball-handling abilities. Jackson is a smart role player who doesn't make too many mistakes, with good size, decent athleticism and with a decent basketball IQ. His role is important. But it's also limited.
