Impact Slater finished the afternoon with four points (2-3 FG), two blocks and a rebound in 22 minutes. The 6-6 junior had a ferocious dunk to put the Wildcats up six with 13:30 remaining in the game But Baylor quickly found their rhythm as they ended up outscoring Villanova 29-12 the rest of the way. Slater has seen his role on the team grow year-by-year as he finished this season averaging a personal-best 3.8 points and 2.2 rebounds in 16.6 minutes per game. Head coach Jay Wright has the No. 6 recruiting class coming in and likely won't be losing many key players heading into next year so Slater's position on the team shouldn't change much as he head's into his senior year.
