The Player of the Year race really gets started this week with conference play beginning.
Some of the numbers that get put up in November and December aren't as meaningful because of the competition, but what's noticeable about the guys on this list is that they've been even more productive in big games.
Still, it's easier to get up for a big game when they are happening maybe once every three or four weeks. Conference play is a grind and crucial matchups are taking place almost every week.
By the end of January, we should have a much better idea of who deserves to be considered college basketball's best player than we do now.
