Yeah, we hear you Jared Sullinger. Ohio State's superfrosh went absolutely nuts in a win over IUPUI last Thursday, and the 6'8" big man finally cracked the top three in this week's player of the year rankings. The top spot still belongs to junior guard Kemba Walker and his NCAA-leading 28.1 points per game, but for how long?

Rank Last (+/-) Player-School Notes
1 1 (--)
Kemba Walker-UConn Doesn't play again until 12/20. His throne is officially safe.
2 3 (+1)
Jimmer Fredette-BYU
Set season-highs in pts (33) and rebs (9) in win over Arizona.
3 4 (+1) Jared Sullinger-Ohio St.
The key to his FORTY points vs. IUPUI? Try 16-23 FTs.
4 2 (-2)
Nolan Smith-Duke
Awful shooting vs. Bradley (0-8). Rebounded with 22 vs. St. Louis.
5 5 (--) Austin Freeman-G'Town Back to Earth from the field: Shooting 41.2% over his last three.
6 12 (+6) Scotty Hopson-Tennessee
Dominant in road win over #3 Pitt. 12+ points in all seven games.
7 6 (-1) Terrence Jones-Kentucky
Killed Notre Dame for 27pts and 17rbs. Wildly inconsistent.
8 16 (+8) Rick Jackson-Syracuse
17pts & 16rbs vs. Michigan St. A brute force in the low post right now.
9 9 (--) E'Twaun Moore-Purdue A consistent 20ppg scorer. Candidacy tied to Purdue's W/L record.
10 8 (-2) LaceDarius Dunn-Baylor
Need to see more of him. Remains a serious POY sleeper.
11 11 (--)
Kawhi Leonard-SDSU Right on Jimmer's heels. Easy stretch ahead on schedule too.
12 13 (+1) Marcus Morris-Kansas
Went for 14-8-5 against Memphis. He's 10/19 from 3P range (52.6%)
13 10 (-3) Derrick Williams-Arizona
Out-dueled by Fredette 33 to 13. Still crazy-efficient @ 19.5ppg.
14 12 (-2) Jordan Hamilton-Texas
Stat-sheet stuffer: 16-10-5 in blowout win over Texas St.
15 NR
Demetri McCamey-Illinois Sparkling 2.96 assist/turnover ratio. Went off for 30pts vs. Oakland.
16 7 (-9) Kyrie Irving-Duke
Still warrants a mention for that impressive start. The NBA is up next.
17 17 (--)
John Shurna-Northwestern
3rd in the nation in effective FG%. 4th in true shooting %.
18 18 (--)
Ken Faried-Morehead St. NCAA leader at 13.7rpg. The numbers should keep rolling in.
19 20 (+1) Kyle Singler-Duke
Will creep back into POY picture with Irving out. 83.8% FTs.
20 14 (-6) Tyler Zeller-North Carolina
Needs a huge game against Texas to get back into the discussion.
