Nickname: Wink Strengths: Is without question UNLV's primary offensive threat. He packed some more muscle onto his upper body in the offseason, which should make him even more effective when he executes his patented drives to the rack. One way or another, Adams tends to get it done when he puts the ball on the floor. If he's not hitting acrobatic layups, he's hurting opponents from the free throw line, where he shot 84.8 percent as a junior. He also has solid point guard skills, which he'll attempt to showcase more this season in preparation for a career in pro ball. Weaknesses: For as much as Adams has scored in his first three seasons at UNLV -- he enters his senior campaign as the school's 14th all-time leading scorer -- he's not the world's highest percentage shooter. As a sophomore, he shot 38.4 percent from the floor, and raised it to 42.2. as a junior. When he's hot, he's hot. Last year's Mountain West title game win against BYU is a testament to that. But when he's cold, teammates need to beef up the efforts. UNLV 2008-09 season With first-year guards Tre'Von Willis and Oscar Bellfield growing accustomed to things at UNLV as the season progresses, Adams will be relied upon to be a rock in the backcourt. He'll flex over and run some point this season, and expect his assist total to reach the triple digits. It's gone up each season, including 107 dimes as a junior. Also a sticky defender, he'll be needed to continue to do what he's done best over the course of his career in that department -- steal the ball. He enters this season fifth on UNLV's all-time steals list with 170. As a junior (16.9 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 3.1 apg) A first team All-MWC selection, Adams only got better as the season wore on, topping the 20-point barrier in four of UNLV's final five games. That stretch included one of the more memorable performances of his career as a Rebel, notching 23 points -- mostly during a torrid second half run -- on 8-of-15 shooting against BYU to win the Mountain West Tournament. He was named Tournament MVP. Adams scored a career-high 33 points on Jan. 23 at home against Wyoming. As a sophomore (13.9 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 2.3 apg) The only Rebel to start all 37 games, Adams earned second team All-MWC honors. He led the team in points scored with 514, as UNLV upset second-seeded Wisconsin in Chicago to advance to the NCAA Tournament Sweet Sixteen. As a freshman (10.9 ppg, 3.3 rpg, 2.4 apg) Adams lived up to his lofty billing out of high school and turned into an honorable mention All-MWC performer. While averaging 28.3 minutes per game, he led UNLV in steals, was second in assists and points scored. Truly broke out with 23 points at home against BYU on Jan. 11, 2006. At Gulf Shores (Texas) Academy Adams averaged 28 points, 12 assists and 8 steals per game as a senior, teaming up with current NBA guard Gerald Green to win three consecutive Texas private-school championships. Quoting "When I came, I didn't expect to have the type of years I've been having here. I knew it was a program that was rebuilding. I knew we had scorers, I knew we had players who could do certain things. With the coaches we've got, with the teammates that I have, it helped me open my game a little bit. I don't want to stop here. As a team we want to get better, as a player I want to get higher and higher, and when I leave I want my name to be remembered. I want to come back and see my jersey up there (in the rafters)."
