Jimmer Fredette, “Jimmer Fredette,”Brigham Young, senior – Fredette has more than lived up to its reputation as a preseason All-American. He led the nation in scoring at 26.1 points per game and 4.4 assists on average. It’s not like Fredette tallied his gaudy stats against weak opponents. BYU played UCLA, UNLV and St. Mary’s.
Jared Sullings, Ohio State, freshman – The 6-foot-9, the first year of 280 pounds was the best player in basketball freshman class of college excellent. Sullings average 17.9 points and 10.3 rebounds and has eight double-doubles. It will certainly be in the mix for the National Award in timber and other Player of the Year accolades. Enjoy it while you can, Buckeyes fans.
Duke guard Nolan Smith has blossomed into the best player in college basketball this season, but there were a few weeks in early November, when he was not even the best player on his team.
That honor belonged to freshman Kyrie Irving, who was made national headlines as the leader of 18 years in the No. 1-ranked Blue Devils. But when Irving went down with a toe injury on December 4, the pressure was on Smith to make sure Duke did not miss a beat.
A senior, Smith has averaged 19.5 career high points for the Blue Devils undefeated, who won all but three of their 15 games by double digits. Smith is dishing out 5.7 assists per game and is running 51 per cent on the ground, an extremely high number for a goalkeeper who makes most of its shots from the perimeter.
Smith was particularly lethal in the last six wins Duke, when he averaged 24.8 points while connecting on 55 percent of its shots.
