Jordan Mathews, Gonzaga Bulldogs: Mathews deserved a spot on this list last season when he played next to Jaylen Brown, Ivan Rabb and Tyrone Wallace at Cal. Now, he's assisting a Gonzaga squad with as much potential as any team Mark Few has assembled in recent years. He's not putting up SportsCenter-worthy numbers, but he's avoiding the mistakes and errors that could hurt his team. Yes, he has made just 25 percent of his shots inside the arc, but he has connected on 86 percent of his free throws and 39.7 percent of his 3-pointers. He has recorded nine assists and committed just two turnovers in the last five games. He's the perfect veteran for this West Coast Conference powerhouse.
