Top 100 Big Board Updated

Fri, 02/27/2009 - 1:55pm

With March upon us and the NCAA tournament just weeks away it's time to update the Big Board.

[img_assist|nid=4656|title=Craig Brackins|desc=|link=none|align=right|width=300|height=450]Making the biggest leap is sophomore forward Craig Brackins who climbs 52 spots from 61 to 9 on our latest big board.

Brackins fits the "late bloomer" description to a T. He has shown vast improvement having picked up the game late: he started playing organized ball halfway through high school.

He has quickly become one of the most dominant big men in the country, ala Dirk Nowitzki, with the ability to create shots for himself and consistently knock down the 15-18 foot jump shot.

Also making a big jump were freshmen Willie Warren and Tyreke Evans. Evans' Tigers have been on a roll winning 19 straight and moving up to the 4th rated team in the country.

While some of that success is obviously due to playing in a terrible conference, Evans playmaking ability from the point guard position has become steadier and he's become a more efficient scorer.

Warren is his top competition for national freshman of the year and his explosiveness and scoring ability has him hovering around the 20 position on the big board.

Other risers include: DeJuan Blair, Evan Turner, Ed Davis, Terrence Williams, Trevor Booker, Jerel McNeal, Vladimir Dasic, Jermaine Taylor, Jan Vesely, Jodie Meeks, Emir Preldzic and Danny Green.

Falling out of the top 100 were: Nemanja Gordic, Vyacheslav Kravtsov, Jeremy Pargo, Austin Freeman, Raymar Morgan, Chris Singleton, Vitor Faverani, Nolan Smith, Malcolm Lee, LaceDarius Dunn, Manny Harris, Grievis Vasquez, Nando De Colo, and Howard Thompkins.

It's important to note that the top 100 rankings are based on players entering this year's draft. Some players would rank higher or lower if leaving in a later draft were taken into consideration.
