1. Obi Toppin, Dayton Flyers
2. Myles Powell, Seton Hall Pirates
3. Vernon Carey, Duke Blue Devils
4. Daniel Oturu, Minnesota Golden Gophers


The most underrated stat for post players might be minutes, and that's where Oturu really shines. It's all well and good that his numbers look impressive across the board, for example, but it's the fact that he can inflict that level of performance on opponents so relentlessly that makes him so valuable to Minnesota. Oturu has been on the floor for 88% of the Gophers' minutes to this point in conference play, and he's coming off a 30-point performance (on 12-of-16 shooting) against Michigan. The sophomore is possibly the most complete player in this season's unusually strong and deep Big Ten, and that's saying something.

Well deserved praise for Oturu! He has earned every bit of it. As much as I would like to see him another year here, it would be fantastic to see him go in the top 5 or 10 in the draft. Great for him and for the program. He's proof that players can come here, develop, get noticed and be drafted high. Now we need more like him.
