Oklahoma State's Le'Bryan Nash is ready to shine.

The athletic forward shared the spotlight with Marcus Smart and Markel Brown the past two years, but Smart and Brown are in the NBA.

So Nash enters his senior season as the top returning scorer for the Cowboys. Nash averaged 13.9 points last season and scored 20 or more seven times on his way to being a third-team All-Big 12 selection.

Nash played power forward last year. But this season, the Cowboys will move him around and have him play some small forward. He said he worked on his perimeter game in the offseason, improving his outside shot and his ball-handling. He said he lost 10 pounds to improve his mobility.
