Tommy Brenton missed all of 2010-11 after dislocating his kneecap, but bounced back with an impressive season for Stony Brook a year ago.

He's the Seawolves Mr. Do It All, even leading the team in assists, while finishing as the league's leading rebounder. The 6-foot-5 forward already is Stony Brook's Division I career rebound leader and ranks second on the all-time list.
