You needn't worry about Tinkle...that team is going nowhere.

They are certainly on the bubble at this point. Top 50 NET, 3-4 against Q1/Q2 teams. Given the state of the Pac 12 I can see them getting to the tournament.

Agree with that. He's a beast.

Saadiq Bey over Kamar Baldwin from Butler? Baldwin is a better and more valuable player without question.

It's like the Wooden people just looked at some stats pages and picked guys based on that.

Also, no clear cut frontrunner by a long shot.

Winston goes 4-13 with 9 TOs in a historic blowout.

I'd pick Jones of Carey from Duke if they finish with a #1 seed. If Seton Hall gets it together and wins the Big East (which I think they will), then I go Myles Powell.

Nice recognition for Tyrese Haliburton - 6-5 So - Iowa State - who is a great player on a terrible team.
