MWC Wire Top 25 Countdown: #13 Matt Mitchell

The No. 13 player in the MWC Wire Top 25 Basketball Countdown is San Diego State sophomore guard Matt Mitchell.

Mitchell, a 6-6 wing by the way of Riverside, California, immediately packed a scoring punch to the San Diego State offense as a freshman. Scoring 10.5 points per game and knocking down 49 triples, Mitchell displayed throughout the season why he could quickly develop into one of the top scorers in the conference.

Paired with fellow sophomore Jalen McDaniels and senior guard Devin Watson, Mitchell will headline San Diego State’s three-man offensive attack. Totaling 36 steals in his first season (including a 31-point, six-rebound, three-assist, three-steal outburst against Eastern Illinois), Mitchell is no slouch on the defense end either.
