Week 7: Big Man Power Ranking

(AP)

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.


Larrier (AP)

1Terry Larrier [Last Week: 1]

Larrier is now shooting 41.7 percent on two-point attempts this season and 43.5 percent on threes. On the one hand, it’s nice to have a reliable shooter from outside. But on the other, Larrier needs to get back in his bag, which is midrange scoring.

Diarra (A Dime Back)

2Mamadou Diarra [2]

Diarra is hanging onto the number two by the skin of his teeth after a week that saw him not make a field goal, and miss five of six free throws. Fortunately for him — if not for the Huskies — rebounding is the most important contribution the NLBP can make, and Diarra led the pack in that category.

Cobb (Getty)

3Eric Cobb [4]

Cobb had some nice offensive moments against Syracuse, though he looked overmatched on defense most of the time and barely played against Coppin St. He’s at number three this week because, despite his scattered playing time, Cobb has shown the best combination of scoring touch and rebounding skills.

Carlton

4Josh Carlton [3]

Carlton committed two turnovers in only one minute against Syracuse. I’m not even mad, etc. He came back to put up some decent numbers against Coppin State. Carlton has been a respectable role player so far this season.

Whaley (A Dime Back)

5Isaiah Whaley [6]

Whaley had a really nice game against Coppin State but it was against Coppin State, so… It was the first time Whaley had scored a point since the season-opener. If he can keep it up, it would really be helpful for UConn but, more importantly, it would also rocket Pork Chop up this list.

Polley (Stephen Slade)

6Tyler Polley [5]

Polley also benefited from playing the Coppin State Slumpbusters, scoring five points in eight minutes. He’s fallen pretty far from his starter’s role at the beginning of the season.

Sizable Dave got on the board on Saturday, scoring a season-high three points against Coppin State.

Our national nightmare continues as the Coppin State game has passed and Kwint has yet to dunk in a game this season.
