The college basketball season is just two weeks old, but it's never too early to think about the Naismith Player of the Year Award.
Harrison Barnes, Jared Sullinger and Jeremy Lamb were the frontrunners in the preseason, but where do they rank now? Who else has emerged onto the national scene?
These power rankings are based on performance and strength of schedule—not projections of future play.
For example, Terrence Jones did not make the cut despite being an AP preseason All-American. The sophomore has come out of the gate slowly, averaging just 11 points and eight rebounds through four games.
You'll also see Shabazz Napier ranked lower than his statistics should warrant because of UConn's low level of competition.
