Jared Sullinger, Ohio State: C, 6-9, 280, Fr.

Since we’re giving Barnes National Player of

the Year honors, we’re going with a different rookie

for Freshman of the Year — and it’s the

ultra-productive Sullinger. If Evan Turner averaged

double-digit rebounds in Columbus, it’s downright

scary to think what Sullinger can do in the paint and on

the glass.

Kyle Singler, Duke: SF, 6-8, 230, Sr.


2009-10 stats: 17.7 ppg, 7.0 rpg, 40% 3-pointers

He decided to return for his senior season after

helping to lead the Blue Devils to the national

championship last year.

Harrison Barnes, North Carolina: F, 6-8, 210, Fr.


2009-10 stats: N/A

The consensus top-rated incoming freshman in the

country, the Iowa native is versatile and is exactly what a

Tar Heels team that needs a go-to guy and leader is looking

for.

Jared Sullinger, Ohio

State

: C, 6-9, 280, Fr.


2009-10 stats: N/A

Sullinger is the latest in the line of talented big

men to come through Columbus and could wind up being the

most productive. He’s a man in the paint, plays hard

and uses his wide body to his advantage.

Shelvin Mack, Butler: G, 6-3, 215, Jr.


2009-10 stats: 14.1 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 3.0 apg, 39%

3-pointers

After spending much of his first two seasons at

Butler in the shadow or Gordon Hayward and Matt Howard,

this will be Mack’s chance to show his true talents.

The Lexington, Ky., product is vastly underrated and will

keep Butler on the national map.

Jacob Pullen, Kansas State: G, 6-0, 200,

Sr.


2009-10 stats: 19.3 ppg, 3.4 apg, 40% 3-pointers

Pullen was phenomenal a year ago playing alongside

Denis Clemente in the backcourt. Now he’ll move back

to running the team and the challenge will be to balance

scoring and making his teammates better.

Second Team

width="65" />

Marcus Morris, Kansas: F, 6-9, 235, Jr.


2009-10 stats: 12.8 ppg, 6.1 rpg

With Sherron Collins, Cole Aldrich and Xavier Henry

gone, Morris becomes the go-to guy and leader. He’s

extremely talented, but still will need to prove he can

lead.

Elias Harris, Gonzaga: F, 6-7, 245, Soph.


2009-10 stats: 14.9 ppg, 7.1 rpg, 45% 3-pointers

The skilled German wasted no time making an impact

in Spokane, leading the team in rebounding and second in

scoring behind departed guard Matt Bouldin.

Trey Thompkins

, Georgia: F/C, 6-10, 245, Jr.


2009-10 stats: 17.7 ppg, 8.3 rpg, 38% 3-pointers

The skilled Bulldogs big man has flown under the

radar — largely because his team has struggled in his

two years in Athens. But that should change as Mark Fox has

enough to be competitive near the top of the SEC.

style="padding-left: 2px; padding-right: 5px;"

width="65" />

Kyrie Irving, Duke: G, 6-2, 180, Fr.


2009-10 stats: N/A

He could be the most talented point guard in the

nation, but his numbers may not be earth-shattering due to

the presence of seniors Kyle Singler and Nolan Smith.

Irving will try to replace Jon Scheyer and lead the Blue

Devils to back-to-back titles.

width="65" />

Nolan Smith, Duke: G, 6-2, 185, Sr.


2009-10 stats: 17.4 ppg, 4.4 apg, 39% 3-pointers

He’s certainly worthy of a spot on the first

team, but frankly I wanted to spread the wealth and not

load up with too many guys from one program. Smith has

excelled playing off the ball and that should

continue.

Third Team

Kevin Jones, West Virginia: F, 6-8, 260,

Jr.


2009-10 stats: 13.5 ppg, 7.2 rpg, 40% 3-pointers

Now that Da’Sean Butler and Devin Ebanks are

gone, it’s Jones’ team. He’s one of the

most underrated and versatile guys in the country.

Chandler Parsons, Florida: F, 6-9, 215,

Sr.


2009-10 stats: 12.4 ppg, 6.9 rpg, 36% 3-pointers

He’s matured — both mentally and

physically — and is ready for a breakout year.

He’s long and will be counted upon if the Gators are

to live up to the hype.

JaJuan Johnson, Purdue: C, 6-10, 220, Sr.


2009-10 stats: 15.5 ppg, 7.1 rpg, 2.1 bpg

He has made dramatic improvement since he entered

the program and become of the nation’s most

productive big man in the country.

Jimmer Fredette, BYU: G, 6-2, 195, Sr.


2009-10 stats: 22.1 ppg, 4.7 apg, 44% 3-pointers

The lightly recruited kid out of Glen Falls, N.Y.,

burst onto the national scene last season and is one of the

top guards in the nation due to his ability to score and

also make his teammates better.

LaceDarius Dunn, Baylor: G, 6-4, 200, Sr.


2009-10 stats: 19.6 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 42% 3-pointers

He’s a big-time unorthodox scorer who should become

even more of the focal point of Scott Drew’s offense

with the departure of Tweety Carter and Ekpe Udoh.

Durrell Summers, Michigan State: F, 6-5,

205, Sr.


2009-10 stats: 11.3 ppg, 4.7 rpg, 36% 3-pointers

I know Summers is more of a guard, but I wanted to

get him on here because he’s finally ready to realize

his potential. He came on strong late last season and has a

combination of athleticism and skill that makes him one of

the most feared players in the country when he’s

focused.

Kawhi Leonard, San Diego State: F, 6-7, 225, Soph.

Not too many people know about Leonard nationally,

but he’ll be the top player on a team that could win

the Mountain West.

William Buford, Ohio State: G, 6-5, 205,

2009-10 stats: 14.4 ppg, 5.6 rpg

With the departure of Evan Turner, look for Buford

to become the Buckeyes’ go-to guy. He’s always been

able to score the ball, but his ability to handle the ball

and make plays for others has improved.

Kalin Lucas, Michigan State: G, 6-0, 195,

2008-09 stats: N/A

The speedy Spartans floor leader probably

wouldn’t have still been in college if he

hadn’t suffered a ruptured Achilles in the NCAA

tournament. If he comes back 100 percent, he could wind up

being a first-team All-American.

Jeffery Taylor, Vanderbilt: F, 6-7, 225,

He’s not exactly a household name nationally, but

everyone knows about the athletic wing in the SEC.

does everything else — well.

Jon Leuer, Wisconsin: F, 6-10, 230, Sr.

He led the Badgers in scoring, rebounding and blocks

2009-10 stats: 15.7 ppg, 7.1 rpg

The former USC signee thrived in Tucson last season

and was one of the top freshmen in the nation. He may have
