Top 10 POY candidates for 2019 - Part 1/3
----------------------------------------------------
1. LUKE MAYE
F NORTH CAROLINA

Luke Maye returns to the Tar Heels after averaging 16.9 PPG 10.1 RPG and 2.4 APG last season, leading North Carolina to a number 2 seed. Maye is also a deadly shooter making 50 of his 116 attempts or 43.1%. Stats and a great team is what you need for the award, and he has both.
----------------------------------------------------
2. RJ BARRETT
G DUKE

RJ Barrett, this year’s consensus #1 prospect will be playing for Duke this winter.  Barrett is 6’7’’ and 200 lb, and Duke will lose all 5 of their starters due to graduation, and the NBA.  I expect Barrett to become Duke’s leading man, and contend for many premier awards.
----------------------------------------------------
3. REID TRAVIS
F UNDECIDED

Reid Travis decided to transfer from Stanford on May 30th, and will almost certainly play at Kentucky or Villanova. Travis averaged 19.5 PPG and 8.7 RPG, but did not contend for any major awards for the same reason as Ethan Happ, his team finished with less than 20 wins. With a better supporting cast on his new team, Travis should be a frontrunner for the award.
----------------------------------------------------
4. CARSEN EDWARDS
G PURDUE

Last Year, Carsen Edwards went from a solid player on a good team, to a great player on a great team.  Carsen averaged 18.5 PPG 3.8 RPG and 2.8 APG, and there is little question that he will put big numbers.  The real question is whether Purdue, a team that lost 4 starters, will be good enough for him to win the award.  If Purdue can be a consistent top 25 team, he should be in the mix.
----------------------------------------------------
5. DEAN WADE
F KANSAS STATE

Kansas State should be one of the most improved teams in the country with many key returns including Dean Wade.  Wade will enter his senior year, and shot 44.0% from deep while putting up 16.2 PPG and 62 RPG. If Kansas State is as good as advertised, Wade will be one of the frontrunners for the award.

RJ Barrett will do great things at Duke! Top 5 🚀 @rjbarrett @dukembb

Finishing off our NCAA Basketball Recruit Rankings at #1 is RJ Barrett! RJ is an aggressive player who loves to attack the rim and use his long strides as an advantage when finding a way to the hoop. He's had many clutch moments where he can knock down shots when the game is on the line, especially from 3 which he is shooting 38.5%! His timing when passing the rock is impeccable, and he can get it done on defense using his length and great instincts!

Of course, RJ does have a few weaknesses. While handling the ball, it is loose and away from his body, and when he pulls up for a shot, his release point is sightly low. Also, his intensity on defense and decision making have been inconsistent. He makes up for these weaknesses with his height and clutchness, but can they turn into a big issue against elite competition?
