Every successful team needs players who understand and embrace their roles. Regardless of what it its, each role has its own significance when it comes to wins and losses. Here we take a closer look at 10 glue guys who could make a huge difference for their respective teams. 

MALCOLM DREAD | GONZAGA (DC) '21

Since his freshman year, Dread has found his way onto the court as a result of his ability to defend on the wing. This year, his role as a wing defender could be more important than ever. Expect Dread to once again draw the opposing team's best perimeter player on a given night and look to make an impact defensively. 

TJ GADSDEN | ST. ANDREW'S (MD) '21

Gadsden, an athletic 6-foot-6 forward, will add size and versatility to the Lions' front-court. He could play a key factor in the team's success with his inside-out scoring and rebounding.

ARIEL GODDOT | BISHOP IRETON (VA) '21

Ireton doesn't have a true post player, but Goddot has been admirably filled in as a reliable go-to option with his back to the basket. He has quietly produced consistent numbers over the years and we expect that trend to continue.
