The Top 25 Player of the Year Candidates in College Basketball

24. Wendell Moore Jr. — Duke

Stats (as of Feb. 8): 14.0 PPG, 5.7 RPG, 4.4 APG

The junior out of Charlotte has taken a massive step up this year. Moore has increased virtually every statistical category from a season ago. He’s functioning as a secondary playmaker for the Blue Devils (as evidenced by his assist totals). Additionally, Moore is letting his elite athleticism take over on both ends of the floor. He’s a far more controlled player than in the past, and his relative skill level has gotten much better. Moore’s shooting has also been transformed (.390 from three and .526 from the field).
