UTEP Men's Basketball "Dream Team" - Power Forwards

1966 Texas Western Miners

Alright Miner fans, its on to week two of the five week series that will determine the all time UTEP Men's Basketball "Dream Team". Last week, you all chose David "Big Daddy D" Lattin as the best center in UTEP history. This week, its up to you to choose the best power forward.

The list is filled with some great names in Miner history, including Jim Barnes, Nevil Shed, Jim Forbes, Fred Reynolds, Chris Sandle, Antonio Davis, Marlon Maxey, George Banks, Sharif Fajardo, and Brandon Wolfram. None of these guys need any introduction, but it is up to you to decide who would be the starting PF on the UTEP "Dream Team"

For your help, here's a quick breakdown of these guys' stats. These stats, of course, shouldn't be the only thing to make your decision, but hopefully it'll give you a little help:

Chris Sandle 15 5.4 1.3 0.68 0.82
Antonio Davis 11.5 7.37 0.585 1.02 0.51
Marlon Maxey 13.81 7.49 0.555 1.04 0.67
George Banks 11.68 8.44 0.678 2.06 1.54
Sharif Fajardo 11.48 5.7 1.34 0.63 0.78
Brandon Wolfram 17.61 7.01 1.11 0.57 0.82

One thing of note, while most of these guys came in and played significant minutes from the start of their Miner careers, Antonio Davis was one who did not. His freshman year, he did play, but considering he was averaging 1 shot attempt a game, I felt that those stats would be a huge outlier.

Again, these stats are not meant to make your decision, but more are meant to be in aid in coming to a conclusion. There are some Miner greats on this list, and tougher than deciding who should be on it, is deciding who will be left off. So, who will be the starting power forward on the UTEP "Dream Team"? You make the call.
