Current top 3.
1. Oscar Tshiebwe, Kentucky, 38.6%
2. Kofi Cockburn, Illinois, 15.8%
3. Johnny Davis, Wisconsin, 12.3%
Those are the same 3 I have in my top 3. Good to see we don't have anything out of the ordinary.
Davis really came out of nowhere for me. I mean, I figured he'd be Wisconsin's most talented player, perhaps 2nd or 3rd Team All-Conference. But, his production at the U19 World Championships was pedestrian. He was arguably the least productive player on Team USA. But, he's be showing up big time. And Wisconsin keeps getting dubs.
Oscar's numbers are really jaw-dropping. Feel like he's going to be tough to beat.
Also, yes, Bacot probably could have been in consideration, as well. He has better numbers than Banchero, and is likely the frontrunner for ACC POY, provided UNC keeps winning games.
I remember your preseason player list I mentioned Oscar was too low, but I'm not sure anyone expected him to be this good. From game one when he son'd Mark Williams he's just been absurdly good. I think Oscar's numbers will continue to go down though now Cal is seemingly using a "modern" offense instead of whatever the fvck last year was.
