A pleasant surprise last season, Ayers shared time with Zach Hillesland in the starting lineup. He actually looked better off the bench with his ability to shoot the three and play at the top of a 3-2 zone. 7.9 points and 3.2 rebounds in 25.2 minutes a game. 45% from beyond the arc. In addition to starting fulltime, Ayers' main job this season might be tutoring Ty Nash and Carleton Scott. Nash and Scott have the same body type as Ayers and Hillesland, with more athletic ability. If Ayers can teach the two youngsters some of his long-range prowess, both will become very effective offensive weapons.
