New, 3 comments
Rank Last (+/-) Player-School Notes
1 1 (--) Jimmer Fredette-BYU Surprisingly close to wrapping up the scoring crown before March (27.4).
2 2 (--) Jared Sullinger-Ohio St. Finally defeated. A large chunk of his POY luster just wore off.
3 3 (--) Kemba Walker-UConn One solid game (22-6-7) doesn't eliminate a month full of bad ones.
4 4 (--) Nolan Smith-Duke
Draws 6.3 fouls/40 min. Nobody in the 16-team Big East can top that.
5 5 (--) Jordan Hamilton-Texas
Might be the most unheralded perimeter defender in America. Believe it.
6 6 (--) Derrick Williams-Arizona Ranked nationally in eFG% (1st), TS% (1st), FD/40 min (3rd) & FT Rate (3rd).
7 8 (+1) JaJuan Johnson-Purdue
Big week ahead (WISC, OSU). Outplaying Sully could vault him further.
8 7 (-1) Kawhi Leonard-SDSU Doesn't have to shoot nearly as much as his peers. An elite talent, though.
9 10 (+1) Jon Leuer-Wisconsin Career FT progression: 48.3% (Fr.), 60.5% (So.), 72% (Jr.), 84.9% (Sr.).
10 9 (-1) Terrence Jones-Kentucky Top ten may be a tad generous, but we love his 40 min splits: 23-12-2.
11 11 (--) Austin Freeman-G'Town Ankle injury could slow him down. Still a top 2-3 Big East POY contender.
12 17 (+5) Jordan Taylor-Wisconsin Hands down the Most Valuable Badger (MVB) in 2011. Scorching hot.
13 14 (+1) Marshon Brooks-Providence Scored 20+pts w/ 50% FGs ELEVEN times. FYI-Kemba has eight.
14 16 (+2) Ken. Faried-Morehead St.
Produced all yr, but now Eagles are winning. Love to see him in the NCAAs.
15 15 (--) Jordan Williams-Maryland Back-to-back games without a double-double last wk. 1st time all yr.
16 NR Ben Hansbrough-ND
Averaging 20.86 pts and 5.14 asts over ND's current 7-gm win streak.
17 13 (-4) Rick Jackson-Syracuse Not dominating the offensive glass like he did back in Nov./Dec.
18 19 (+1) E'Twaun Moore-Purdue
Two stellar games last wk. Could sneak back into 1st Team All-Big Ten talk.
19 12 (-7) Klay Thompson-Wash. St.
Fatigue setting in? 13.33 pts, 4.33 TOs and 36.7% FGs over last six.
20 18 (-2) Tu Holloway-Xavier Leads the A-10 in nearly everything, but is only 17th in % of shots taken.
