Tuesday, October 16, 2007 - Hansbrough, Douglas-Roberts headline this year's Player of the Year candidates

Chris Douglas-Roberts - Memphis, Guard

One of the most improved players last season, Douglas-Roberts took his game to another level in the NCAA Tournament as he handled the responsibility of scoring in double-digits night in and night out for John Calipari. With a clip of 15.4 points and 3.4 rebounds, the junior shooting guard can score in a variety of ways, from slashing to the hoop to sticking the open three on the perimeter. Now with the Tigers standing at the top of the polls to start the season, the expectations are even higher for the Detroit native, who should benefit from a veteran lineup that includes forwards Robert Dozier and Joey Dorsey as well as guards Antonio Anderson and Doneal Mack. But if Douglas-Roberts can learn to play alongside freshman sensation Derrick Rose, one of the top point guard recruits coming into the season, then there's no telling how far Memphis can go in 2007-08.
