Rank Last (+/-) Player-School Notes
1 1 (--) Jimmer Fredette-BYU Last 3 gms: Fredette=23.67 ppg, BYU= 24.67 avg. margin of victory.
2 4 (+2) Nolan Smith-Duke Whoa: On pace to be the 1st player ever to lead the ACC in pts and asts.
3 2 (-1) Jared Sullinger-Ohio St. Has the lowest block % of any big man in the Big Ten (1.87). By a mile.
4 6 (+2) Derrick Williams-Arizona
Almost March and he's still at 63.1 FG% and 67.5 3P%. BLOCKED!
5 7 (+2) JaJuan Johnson-Purdue
Strong case can be made that he's the best pure big man in America.
6 3 (-3) Kemba Walker-UConn Last in FG% & FT% among top 7 scorers in NCAA. Also 2nd worst in 3P%.
7 5 (-2) Jordan Hamilton-Texas
Poor shooting last week (7 for 29=24.1%). Teammates are emerging.
8 8 (--) Kawhi Leonard-SDSU Of all 23 players averaging 10+ rebs, nobody records more assists (2.6/gm).
9 9 (--) Jon Leuer-Wisconsin Not many 6'10" guys out there can avg. 19 a night w/ 86.0 FT% and 42.6 3P%.
10 10 (--) Terrence Jones-Kentucky Coming back strong: 18.5ppg & 10.2rpg in Feb. Finally showing consistency.
11 12 (+1) Jordan Taylor-Wisconsin It would be an utter travesty if Taylor was left off the All-Big Ten 1st Team.
12 14 (+2) Ken. Faried-Morehead St. Best rebounder I've seen since Paul Millsap. MSU is on his back right now.
13 11 (-2) Austin Freeman-G'Town Hot and cold. Needs to finish strong to keep name in BE POY picture.
14 18 (+4) E'Twaun Moore-Purdue Back in biz after a mini-slump. Highlight of 38-point game vs. OSU? This.
15 16 (+1) Ben Hansbrough-ND Impossible to argue with his last 5 gms: 21pts, 4.8rebs, 4asts (ND is 4-1).
16 13 (-3) Marshon Brooks-Providence
Points keep on coming. Many overlook his 7.4 rebs and 1.3 blocks per gm.
17 17 (--) Rick Jackson-Syracuse Body of work is there. But FT shooting has been cringe-worthy as of late.
18 NR John Jenkins-Vanderbilt
Hit a ridiculous 16 for 31 from 3P land in last 3 gms. Is this your SEC POY?
19 15 (-4) Jordan Williams-Maryland
Remains vastly underrated, but foul trouble has hurt him in last 2 wks.
20 NR Norris Cole-Cleveland St. Needed some love. Video game stats. Could end season w/ a 22-6-6 line.
