Ryan Anderson*, PF, California Right now Anderson is the best freshman in the league. In the absence of Devon Hardin, Anderson has put the Bears on his back. He has scored in double figures in every league game and over seven rebounds.
Darren Collison*, G, UCLA Right now Collison is probably the best pure PG in the league. He can score, dish and defend. His consistency is the key for UCLA.
Taj Gibson, PF, USC The athletic big man for the Trojans has been scoring, rebounding and making shooters think twice before entering the paint.
Mustafa Shakur*, PG, Arizona Even with the Wildcats' recent struggles, the senior point guard has been mostly steady. He's averaged 7.7 assists in league games, even with the Wildcat shooters struggling.
Marcus Williams, SF, Arizona The other bright spot for the scuffling Wildcats. He's scoring and hitting the boards for the Wildcats and becoming their go-to guy of late.
Nick Young*, G, USC One of the best scorers in the league, he's scored 18 or more five times in Conference play.
* denotes a place on the pre-conference All-Pac-10 team
