BUY:
Trevon Hughes, PG, Wisconsin, Sr.

Living in Wisconsin and following Hughes since he first arrived at Wisconsin, I have seen flashes where I think he can be a legit back-up NBA point guard and plenty of times where he has added to the gray hairs on Bo Ryan’s head.  So far this season, Hughes has been phenomenal for the Badgers.  He received praise from Coach K in Wisconsin’s win against Duke when Hughes scored 26 points and hit some big shots late in the shot clock.  He then dropped 27 in a loss at UWGB and has shown the ability to hit outside shots, attack the basket, and gets after it on D’.  If he keeps performing at his current level of play, he has a real chance of being a second round pick.

BUY:
Ed Davis, F/C, North Carolina, Soph.
Coaches always talk about wanting to see constant improvement from their players.  That is exactly what Davis has shown early on this season.  He is becoming more aggressive on the offensive end to compliment his already solid ability to rebound and block shots.  Against Michigan State, Davis scored a career-high 22 points and did an outstanding job of establishing position on the block.  He still needs to work on his shot, but is making the strides to be worthy of a surefire top-ten pick next summer.

Manny Harris, G, Michigan, Jr.

Despite a lackluster showing by Michigan in the Old Spice Classic, Manny Fresh as Len Elmore oh so cleverly calls him averaged 22.7 points, 9 rebounds, 5.7 assists, and 2.7 steals per game in Michigan’s three contests.  His three-point shooting has been atrocious (3-23 on the season) but his ability to attack the basket, and finish or get to the free throw line has been impressive.  Harris is still a borderline first round pick, but he can improve his outside shot has a chance of turning pro after this season.
