For the first time this season, we have the same exact top five in the same exact order as one week ago for Freshman of the Year. It's fun to see some movement and shuffling along the top, but it was just too difficult this week. We looked at Shabazz Muhammad moving up after yet another big scoring week, but it's tough to move Ben McLemore despite a couple of subpar performances. Marcus Smart has been outstanding the past two games, so he stays at No. 2. And can we really knock Jahii Carson out of the rankings? After all, he plays nearly every minute for a 13-2 Arizona State team.
