Every Monday (approx.) we will update the Big Man Power Ranking, heavily influenced by the play of the forwards and centers in the prior week’s games.

1Terry Larrier [Last Week: 1]

If we did a team-wide power ranking, Larrier would still be number one this week. He beat Colgate this week almost single-handedly. Larrier remains very good.

Polley (Stephen Slade)

2Tyler Polley [4]

Polley played 30 minutes against Colgate. He’s clearly climbing up Kevin Ollie’s depth chart and this week’s power ranking.

3Eric Cobb [3]

It’s a good sign that even when Cobb’s offensive game isn’t working he can find ways to be productive — mainly by being UConn’s best rebounder.

Whaley (A Dime Back)

4Isaiah Whaley [6]

Good things happen when Whaley is on the court. Is it because he’s athletic, has a great motor and good rebounding instincts? Or is it because he’s nicknamed Pork Chop? Yes.

Carlton

5Josh Carlton [2]

Carlton was mostly silent against Colgate after dominating Queens in the final exhibition last week. Still, he will get plenty of chances to prove him worth in the coming games against below-average competition.

Diarra (A Dime Back)

6Mamadou Diarra [5]

Diarra isn’t getting a ton of minutes with the other guys on the roster outplaying him. He did manage four rebounds against Colgate in only seven minutes.

Williams

7Kwintin Williams [7]

Well… Kwint had a steal! Otherwise there were zeroes in the box score this week. He is going to need to find a way to use his limited minutes more effectively if he wants to jump some of these other guys on the depth chart.

Still waiting on Big Dave. He missed the Colgate game with the same hip ailment that cost him the entire exhibition season. One of these days…
