Updated. Also there were problems with some stats in the averages worksheet. Hopefully I fixed all of them.

Dwight Powell is quietly putting up a really intriguing year.

A guy that never really gets talked about is Daniel Mullings of New Mexico State. I saw him at the All Canada Classic when Kabongo dominated the rest of the competition. Mullings is a really athletic combo-guard that does a lot of things on the floor. He had a triple double last season.

I used to be really high on Birch when I first saw him play for Canada. I've cooled on him now, but I still think he can be a good player.

Bennett is obviously awesome. Stauskas has been lights out this year (over 70% TS%!) and Olynyk has been dominating everyone.

Jordan Bachynski is averaging close to 5 blocks a game and a bunch of games where he had 6 to 10 blocks.

I'm hoping Kabongo improves on his shooting and his decision making.

another guy who has come out of nowhere - at least thats what i call york university - is dejan kravic at texas tech. for however big a disappointment ty nurse has been, kravic has made up for it. averaging ~10 and 5, shooting just under 60% and just over a block and a half a game.

DX has moved Bennett into the top 5 this year. I have to admit when I first heard he was 6'7 I thought it might hold him back from his NBA dream but the way he's playing I'm seeing a little bit of Larry Johnson or Thadd Young to his game. I know a lot of people like to compare him to Brand but I think it's his perimeter skills and handle that will allow him to have an impact in the NBA. I see a bit of Brand too but hes kind of a mix of all 3 and thus his own player. A bit of Millsap too, I guess.

Olynyk with his second straight 30+ game; 31/8 tonight in the win against St. Mary's. And just as I predicited, he's now moved into the 1st round, by NBADraft.net

Mullings is playing really well. On a related note, NMSU's top three scorers are all Canadian; Mullings. Ty Watson and Bhullar. Pretty cool. Another "under the radar" guy is Jason Calliste for Detroit; I think he dropped 28 tonight.

Gonzaga's Defensive efficiency is the worst amongst the top contenders for the NCAA title by a fair margin - and I think Pangos and Olynyk are unfortunately a part of that - they really need to develop in that regards.

Heck of an offensive team, however - arguably the best in the country -- and much of the credit for that goes to Pangos and Olynyk. What really impresses me about Olynyk is his ability to get tips and finish around the basket -- im not talking dunks, but the contested 3-5 footers that alot of big men miss. (After watching a game of Dejuan Coleman, Rak Christmas, and Baye Keita butcher those, it makes you appreciate someone who is really good at it) Add in the fact that really wasn't Olynyk's game when he started at Gonzaga and its quite impressive - really quick development. Redshirt year really worked out for him -- I am pretty sure Gonzaga were expecting a five year player, and I don't think he will make it to 2013/2014.

Assuming Michael Carter Williams leaves, Tyler Ennis might have to play 35 minutes a game for the Orange next year.

They will have decent depth at the 2, but not sure if any of those guys will be particularly adept as the lead guard.

IMO, I think the biggest disappointment so far has to be Kyle Wiltjer. Team's are going at him defensively and he is been very inconsistent scoring/shooting wise.

A couple other players who deserve mention as we start conference season:

Junior Cadougan, while his numbers are modest. has established as the leader of Marquette this year as a senior. Marquette could be an 8-12 seed type team in the tourney.

Olivier Hanlan has been the second leading scorer for Boston College this year averaging over 13 a game. BC while still poor, has improved signiificantly over last year. They have moved up from #259 on the KenPom rank to #134.

Finally Melvin Ejim continues to be solid with Iowa St. He played really well at Kansas - 19 pts, 11 rebs, 5 asts. Nobody wins at Kansas, and Iowa St almost pulled off the major upset losing in OT. Although at this point, Kansas has overtaken Duke as having the most home cooking in the NCAA. Some bad calls in that game.

Texas Tech is in a major conference but they are a really bad team - might only win 1 or 2 games in the Big 12 this year. They are 8-5 this year but they have played the second worst schedule in the country.

May just be a case of someone having to get minutes on a bad team, but being efficient because they loaded up on the really inept at home.

We will see what he does in the Big 12 season.

Biggest mistake he made was going to Kentucky. We thought he was going to Gonzaga and then he committed to UK at the last minute without ever setting foot on their campus.

Cadougan never really lived up to the hype and he was Kabongo before Kabongo. I think with Junior he used to be fat and his jumper is a bit iffy. Melvin, I was hyping snce his freshman year, if he continues to work on his jumper he can play sf with Wiggins and Kris Joseph for the national team.
