NASHVILLE, Tenn. - - Belmont University men's basketball senior and 2019 All-America candidate Dylan Windler (Indianapolis, Ind.) is the subject of a Belmont All-Access feature video.
Windler, the only player in America last season to average at least 17.0 points, 9.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists per game on 40 percent 3-point shooting, recently went undercover, hitting the streets of Nashville as freelance reporter Willie Dindler. The 6-7 wing player engaged tourists in Nashville's 12 South District, spotlighting Belmont's championship pedigree and tradition of sustained excellence.
The Indianapolis, Indiana native was a 2018 Mid-Major All-American and First Team All-OVC selection, and one of only three players in college basketball last season to post a 30 point-20 rebound game (Marvin Bagley, Jo Lual-Acuil).
The video was inspired by a popular profile of two-time All-American Evan Bradds ('17) - who ranks fourth all-time in college basketball history in field goal percentage (.667) and set Belmont's NCAA Division I era career scoring record (1,921 points) - who also toured Nashville undercover as Brad Evans.
