He's a Dude: Xavier Rathan-Mayes, freshman guard. The redshirt freshman has had some big shoes to fill after Florida State announced that leading scorer Aaron Thomas was ruled ineligible for the rest of the season. Rathan-Mayes is averaging 13.6 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 4.5 assists per game for the 'Noles and has served as the team's go-to scoring option in Thomas' absence. Out of high school, Rathan-Mayes ranked as the No. 28 overall prospect by Rivals.com and ranked No. 24 by ESPN.
