Player of the Week
Marcus Smart, Oklahoma State
Smart was the key factor in two big wins this past week against Baylor and Kansas State. Over his past 3 games he’s averaged 22 ppg 6.3 rpg and getting to the free throw line at a rate of 10 times per game. He’s also played excellent defense and been the reason why Oklahoma State is probably the hottest team in the conference.
It's been another fantastic year of basketball across the country, one that saw the #1 ranking change hands week by week as the lofty praise of voters seemed to come with it's own mini Madden curse of sorts as having that #1 next to your name meant there was a good chance you would lose that week. Numerous freshmen from various conferences staked their claim as the best pro prospect at various points.
