ACC. Notre Dame is alone atop the ACC with a 3-0 mark and Jerian Grant ranks as the most valuable player–improving the Irish by 9.31 points per game. It will be hard to hold the top spot with Duke boasting two of the top 20 players (Jahlil Okafor at 13th and Tyus Jones at 18th) and Virginia and Louisville boasting the two top defenses in the land behind Kentucky. Ken Pomeroy has three Virginia players on his All-Conference team to date.

Big Ten. Wisconsin’s Frank Kaminsky is back up to 4th–improving the Badgers by 9.93 points per game to try to build on being named Breitbart Sports 1st Team All-American Center last year. Pomeroy agrees that both Kaminsky and teammate Nigel Hayes are in the top four players in the conference.

SEC. Kentucky has seven of the SEC’s top 100 players, but Alabama’s Levi Randolph has had double figures scoring and assists in every game so far to break in as the one non-Kentucky player in the Conferences Top 5.

Delon Wright is making the Value Add Player of the Year honors boring–as he has been worth almost a point and a half more than the second most valuable player, Willie Cauley-Stein. Wright has been worth 12.09 points per game to Utah, which has surged into the Top 10. Starting with his near single-handed defeat of Kansas with a 23 point performance, he has averaged an incredible 7 assists and 3+ steals a game for seven games. He has led a defense that has helped Utah win all three Pac-12 games by at least 24 points. Overall he has been worth 12.09 points per game, almost matching his projection calculated at the beginning of the season as reported by Fox Sports and ESPN the Magazine.
