I think Talor Battle is in the discussion but he doesn’t have adequate support from his teammates. Too often he is a one man show and teams don’t have to fear him as he can get his stats and the Nittany Lions can still be defeated. But with the news of Robbie Hummel’s season ending injury I am going with E’Twaun Moore. Moore is going to be asked to carry more of the load this season without Hummel and I think he is ready to make the jump from being an elite Big Ten player to an elite player on the national level.
I would say that Kalin Lucas from Michigan State fits the bill. The next tier of players would have Demetri McCamey of Illinois, Talor Battler of Penn St, E'Twaun Moore of Purdue, and Jon Leuer of Wisconisn. Hummel would have been in there too pre-injury.Good stuff from both of them and also from the bloggers that contributed to From the Barn's roundtable. More to come as FtB continues with questions 2-6.
Lucas is to me the clear cut best player in the league and will be playing on one of toughest teams in the league as well. He has the ability to get to the hole and finish ini traffic and from FT line to FT line he's about as fast as there is in the country.
