2. SG C.J. Wilcox, Washington
Wilcox is a top-notch defender and an emerging offensive talent. He's averaging 20.3 points along with 6.3 boards and 3.0 assists for the Huskies this season.
1. PF Noah Vonleh, Indiana
It didn't take long for the 6'10", 240-pound 18-year-old big to successfully transition to the college level. In four appearances for the Hoosiers this season, he's averaging 14.8 points, 12.5 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game.
