Best future pro (tie)

Woods (30%).
"He can do more than just block shots. He's got a bank shot that he can hit from 15 feet out."

Best shooter
Casey Jacobsen, swingman, Stanford (70%).
"He's constantly moving around. When he comes off screens, his feet and hands are always set and ready to go."

Gilbert Arenas, guard, Arizona (30%).
"He has a sweet touch and a smoothness about him, kind of like Penny Hardaway."

Dirtiest player
Awvee Storey, forward, Arizona State (40%).
"He'll give you a shot in the gut or the back when it's not so obvious that the ref can see it. He's a Chicago kid. That's his mentality."

Biggest crybaby
Earl Watson, guard, UCLA (30%).
"He thinks he's a lot better than he is. He's the first to talk trash when they're winning and the first to cry when they're losing."

Toughest place to play
Oregon (70%).
"That gym up there is old school, and the students sit real close to the court You can turn around and hit somebody if you want."

Biggest trash talker
Sean Lampley, forward, California (30%).
"He just likes to lip off, and not just in-your-face type stuff. Sometimes he'll talk about someone on his own team."

Strongest player
Michael Wright, forward, Arizona (60%).
"He doesn't necessarily rebound with positioning; he just knocks people out of the way. He's great at creating his own space."

Sleeper team
California (40%).
"They've got all their players back, and they were pretty good to start with."
