Jimmer Fredette expanded his lead further last week, due mostly to his team’s ascension in the rankings. The Wooden and Naismith are going to go to Fredette and it’s looking increasing likely the kPOY will as well. For all the fuss over Fredette’s dip in efficiency, what’s been lost is his in increase in usage. He’s risen to third nationally, and with center Brandon Davies dismissed from the team, taking the national lead may be possible.

(Standings through Sunday’s games. For those new here, this is an explanation of the kPOY.)
