Wooden Award Watch 2013-14: Ranking the Top 10 Candidates in Week 3

Marcus Smart has emerged as the early favorite for the Wooden Award.

Marcus Smart didn't like all the Andrew Wiggins and freshmen talk before the season, and he's done his best to make sure everyone is talking about him the last two weeks.

If he has to hit 70-footers to get everyone's attention, then by golly, he'll hit 70-footers!

The Cowboys have been the most dominant team in the country so far and Smart has taken the lead in the Player of the Year standings.

This week a Tar Heel joins the party and those freshmen keep putting up numbers that cannot be ignored. Sorry, Marcus.

10 to Watch: Andrew Wiggins, Kansas; Jordan Adams, UCLA; Joseph Young, Oregon; Russ Smith, Louisville; Adreian Payne, Michigan State; Sean Kilpatrick, Cincinnati; Frank Kaminsky, Wisconsin; Chaz Williams, UMass; Rodney Hood, Duke; Nik Stauskas, Michigan.
