The Big South is one of the most balanced conferences and has one of the most balanced races for Player of the Year of any of the 32 conferences. Campbell's Ricky Clemons has the lead for Player of the Year after strong showings in each of the first four conference games, but also a great early season performance at Duke in which he hit 7 of 10 shots for 18 points. He ranks in the top 3% of all players, while Longwood's Isaiah Wilkins is not far behind in the top 4% of all players. Wilkins opened the season with a 19 point performance at Iowa, and has now been MVP in four of his last seven games according to www.kenpom.com.
