College Basketball Player of the Year Rankings: Week Eight

Rank Last (+/-) Player-School Notes
1 1 (--) Jared Sullinger-Ohio St. Defend him at your own risk. Hit 13 of 15 FTs on road vs. Illinois.
2 3 (+1) Jimmer Fredette-BYU SCARY GOOD: 38 ppg over last five road games. Unreal.
3 2 (-1) Kemba Walker-UConn Still worth the price of admission. %'s are starting to revert to 09-10 form.
4 4 (--) Nolan Smith-Duke
Not exactly setting worlds on fire with efficiency. Last six: 19.5 shots/gm.
5 5 (--) Kawhi Leonard-SDSU Set your calendar for Wednesday at 10pm ET. Leonard vs. Fredette.
6 6 (--) Terrence Jones-Kentucky
Inconsistent as hell; but he's an elite difference-maker who drops 18-8.
7 7 (--) Jordan Hamilton-Texas
Can't argue: 22.6 ppg & 8.8 rpg vs. Pitt, UConn, Mich St., Tex. A&M & Kansas.
8 9 (+1) Derrick Williams-Arizona Last 3 lines: 31-10, 22-11, 17-19. A contact-drawing machine right now.
9 13 (+4) JaJuan Johnson-Purdue Scoring remains consistent. Only 7 rebounds and just 1 block last wk?
10 8 (-2) Rick Jackson-Syracuse Not his fault: 13ppg, 13rpg & 60% FGs during 'Cuse's two-game skid.
11 11 (--) Austin Freeman-G'Town Dominant in W over SHU (28 pts, 10-13 FGs). But we've been fooled before.
12 14 (+2) Klay Thompson-Wash. St. Was Mr. Versatile last week: 15.5pts, 8.0rebs, 8.0asts, 2.5stls, 2.0blks.
13 17 (+4) Jon Leuer-Wisconsin KenPom loves him, but we're slow to warm up. Mediocre rebounder for 6'10".
14 16 (+2) E'Twaun Moore-Purdue Plummeted from No. 9 to 16 last wk. Responded with 26 vs. Mich St.
15 12 (-3) LaceDarius Dunn-Baylor Defenses are keeping him contained. Not jacking up enough treys.
16 NR Isaiah Thomas-Wash. Well hello there, Isaiah. 10+ assists/gm over last three. Blazing hot.
17 15 (-2) Kyle Singler-Duke
Settling into his No. 2 role nicely. But are his #'s POY-worthy?
18 18 (--) Jordan Williams-Maryland Make that 13 consecutive double-doubles. Vastly improved from last yr.
19 NR Marshon Brooks-Providence
Not many can compete with his 23.6ppg (3rd in NCAA) and 49.3 FG%.
20 10 (-10) Ken. Faried-Morehead. St. The video game numbers aren't showing up. Abysmal shooting lately.
