1 Washington is more than just Nate Robinson. The dynamic 5'9" junior point guard is one of six players averaging at least eight points for the 5--0 Huskies, who defeated Utah, Oklahoma and Alabama last week to win the Great Alaska Shootout.
2 Providence guard Dwight Brewington is one of the nation's most improved players. Through six games, the Friars' leading scorer was not their star, Ryan Gomes, but Brewington, a sophomore averaging 18.5 points. That's up from 5.7 last season.
3 Missouri is taking hits on and off the court. In addition to dropping three straight (Davidson, Creighton and Houston), the Tigers had to change the name of their new arena last week--from Paige Sports Arena to Mizzou Arena--after 22-year-old Wal-Mart heiress Paige Laurie was accused of cheating when she was a student at USC.
