David Singleton (SG/PG), So, 6’4, 200
Jules Bernard (SG), So, 6’6, 205
This last year might have had a lot of rough patches but there were still several bright spots. Two of those came in the former of freshmen guards Bernard and Singleton who both took time to develop but started to make an impact later in the season.
Singleton would probably get the award for most improved in 2018-19 as he not only became a reliable outside shooter (something UCLA desperately needed), he turned out to be one fo the best three-point shooters in the conference. He quickly became a fan favorite due to his work ethic. Every time he was on the court he gave it his all, which in turn, helped speed up his development.
With Campbell going down before the season, Singleton was also asked to take on more of a load and an imprint at one at that as he was the de facto backup PG when Hands wasn’t in the game. This also gave him
Bernard had also made strides late in the season. Though he wasn’t consistently scoring, he gave the Bruins good minutes. As we saw later in the season, Bernard became more comfortable and had more a sure shot. With more development, both of these players will be leading the team in a few years, if not the next.
