Even the best D1 programs in the country employ players on the shorter side as BR-26 Oklahoma State has 5-foot-4 Roddricka Patton running the show from the point. The senior is ranked third in the nation in assists per game with 7.6 (170 total). She also has 67 rebounds (3.0 per game) and 100 points (4.5 per game). Patton's role is to make her teammates better and she is clearly doing that in leading Oklahoma State to an 18-4 record. Patton is in her second season with the team, but even she started out at a smaller school in Trinity Valley where she led the team to a third straight National Title in going 36-1. While at Trinity, she also averaged 7.1 assists per game, good enough to be ranked fourth in the country at the time.
