Clutch Collins easy pick for No. 1
1. Sherron Collins: Best player in college basketball had 28 points, four assists, two steals and did not turn it over.
2. Marcus Morris: His hot streak continued. He had 22 points, eight rebounds and two steals. In the past four games, Morris is averaging 21.8 points, 7.8 rebounds and shooting .750 from the field.
3. Xavier Henry: Still having trouble finishing and on this night his three-point shot was off because it appeared he was releasing the ball on his way down, instead of at the apex of his jump. But he had seven steals, 12 points and four rebounds, all signs he played aggressively.
4. Cole Aldrich: Had 10 points, four rebounds and made players think twice about shooting near the bucket.
5. Tyshawn Taylor: Had five assists and did not turn it over. Took an ill-advised shot late.
6. Markieff Morris: Hit the boards hard with five rebounds in 19 minutes and scored four points to go with two turnovers and a bad decision to shoot once or twice.
7. Brady Morningstar: Had two steals, three assists and one steal, starting in place of Taylor.
8. Tyrel Reed: Scoreless in 10 minutes.
9. Elijah Johnson: Played two minutes.
10. Thomas Robinson: Still having trouble letting the game come to him, as evidenced by two turnovers in four minutes. Hits the boards hard and picked up three rebounds.
11. C.J. Henry: Had trouble getting around picks.
