The term ‘glue guy’ gets thrown around on college basketball broadcasts on a nightly basis, and though the analytics movement aims to quantify everything that takes place on the court, these players’ contributions are immeasurable.

Here are the best glue guys in college basketball this year.

G Phil Booth, Villanova

Booth has been a glue guy throughout his entire Villanova tenure. The perfect complementary player to stars like Jalen Brunson and Mikal Bridges, Booth can hit open shots, attack a scrambled defense, and hold his own on the defensive end. National champions need stars in order to stand out, but Villanova wouldn’t have cut down the nets twice if not for Booth.

More may be asked of him this year with Brunson, Bridges, Omari Spellman and Donte DiVincenzo gone. Booth averaged 10 points per game last season on 44 percent shooting (38 percent from 3). The volume figures to increase as a senior, but to what extent? It’s unclear right now. Incoming freshman point guard Jahvon Quinerly looks like a stud. It will be interesting to see how the shot distribution shakes out.

The good news for Villanova: Booth is versatile. We know how competent he is as a secondary creator, but it feels like there’s untapped potential if Quinerly needs time to develop. The best thing about Booth is that he doesn’t have to put up massive numbers in order to have a positive effect on a team.

G Matt McQuaid, Michigan State

McQuaid was overshadowed by guys like Miles Bridges and Jaren Jackson last year. Rightfully so, frankly. But he’ll have more a role on Michigan State in 2018-19 and based on what we’ve seen, he’s up to the task.
