Seven players 6-foot and under who are making waves

High Five: Men's Basketball Pregame Traditions

You don't have to be a giant to make your presence known on the college basketball court. Here are seven players 6-feet and under who are making waves in the DI ranks.

Tyler Ulis (5-foot-9) So., Kentucky

Not only does this diminutive Wildcat contribute just south of 15 points per game for Coach Cal and Co. But, Ulis also boasts an impressive 83.3 percent free-throw percentage.

J.J Frazier (5-10) Jr., Georgia

This upperclassman makes a big impact when he's on the court. The junior averages 15 points per game, shooting in the 40s from both inside the perimeter and from 3-point land. And that's not all. Frazier averages four assists and five rebounds -- yes, rebounds -- per game.

Lester Medford (5-10) Sr., Baylor

Medford's contributions to the Bears' offense is threefold. The senior averages nine points per game, seven assists and shoots 70.7 percent from the foul line.

Angel Rodriguez (5-11) Sr., Miami (Fla.)

The guard makes 40 percent of his field goals, averages 11 points per game and keeps teams honest with his 78.1 free throw percentage. Rodriguez may not tower over you, but he can rock you like a Hurricane.

Frank Mason III (5-11) Jr., Kansas

Mason averages 13 points per game but his scoring ability isn't all that this Jayhawk has going for him. He also averages just south of five rebounds and five assists per game.

Jordan Woodard (6-0) Jr., Oklahoma

The Sooners' have so many weapons. But, averaging 14.6 points a game is clutch even for a taller player. Woodard is also hitting more than 50 percent of his 3's.

Joel Berry II (6-0) So., North Carolina

Berry's 12.5 points and 4.3 assists per game make him a small but strong contribution to the Tar Heel offense, but his accuracy is just as impressive. The sophomore shoots 39.5 percent from 3-point land and 79.6 percent from the foul line.
