Ashton Gibbs, Pitt
If anyone can match Jenkins' shooting ability, it's Gibbs. He attempted 208 3-pointers last season, almost made half of them and is automatic from the free-throw line. He's not just a pick-and-pop guy, though. He'll create his own shot - but won't force it - and help teammates find open looks by virtue of attracting so much defensive attention.
Doug McDermott, Creighton
Don't know McDermott? He's the guy who'll make Creighton one of the year's elite mid-major programs and derail Kyle Weems' reign as Missouri Valley player of the year. After all, how many 6-7 wings hit 41 percent of their 3-pointers? (Few.) And how many do that as freshmen? (Very few.) And how many happen to be a coach's son and savvy as a result? (Fewer still.)
Draymond Green, Michigan State
Green may not lead the Spartans in any statistical category, but the 6-6 senior is among the game's most versatile players. Need someone to fill in at power forward? Done. A big point guard? Check. Or someone to score, rebound, steal and block shots? That's Green. His only problem? He can be too passive.
Thomas Robinson, Kansas
If the Jayhawks are to remain relevant, the 6-9 junior will be the reason why. He's relentless down low, whether it's attacking the rim or scooping up rebounds. Two things must happen though - Robinson has to avoid foul trouble and broaden his offensive repertoire. Both are doable, but hardly easy.
Anthony Davis, Kentucky
Perhaps the top pick of the 2012 draft, Davis is an intimidating presence down low, capable of dominating a game on the defensive end thanks to his unfair mix of size and mobility. So why's he a third-teamer? Expect the occasional freshman struggles and his offensive game still needs lots of work. This is a testament to his potential that he's even this high.
