Doug McDermott, F, Creighton: As expected, McDermott is putting up ridiculous numbers with 25.2 points and 7.2 rebounds per game.
The senior son of the Bluejays coach is also an 89.6 percent free-throw shooter and a 43 percent marksman from three-point range.
JayVaughn Pinkston, F, Villanova: Pinkston has picked up where left off last season as Villanova's leading scorer.
The junior from Brooklyn averages 16.1 points per game and is a 51.2 percent shooter from the field.
Davante Gardner, F, Marquette: If the Golden Eagles are to make a march up the standings, Gardner will have to be one of the key players that catapults such a run.
Gardner has shown that he is capable of putting up big numbers in conference play as he has already scored 28 versus DePaul and 19 against Xavier.
However, Gardner has also put up totals four and six in his other two Big East games.
Matt Stainbrook, C, Xavier: The initial draw to the Xavier team is Christon, but once you watch the Musketeers play, you realize that Stainbrook brings an important second dimension to the team.
At 11.1 points and 8.6 rebounds per game, Stainbrook is putting up some very respectable numbers in his junior season.
Bryce Cotton, G, Providence: It has been a difficult year personnel-wise for the Friars, but they still have Cotton on the floor each night to put up big numbers.
The senior guard has scored over 20 points in each of his four conference games.
