Possibly in part because he played only 11.6 minutes last season, Arizona's Brandon Randolph doesn't appear on anybody's preseason all-American lists nor on CBS' list of the top 101 players in college basketball.
But ESPN's draft analysts ranked him No. 9 among shooting guard prospects in college basketball.
Two former UA recruiting targets, Bol Bol of Oregon (center) and Nassir Little of North Carolina (small forward), were ranked No. 1 at their positions.
As a whole, the Pac-12 was only lightly represented in ESPN's rankings. USC's Kevin Porter was ranked the No. 4 shooting guard, Oregon's Louis King was ranked the No. 7 small forward, UCLA's Kris Wilkes the No. 8 small forward and Oregon's Kenny Wooten the No. 9 center.
In rankings by class, Washington's Matisse Thybulle was ranked the No. 3 senior, Wilkes was the No. 10 sophomore and Bol was the No. 9 freshman.

The NCAA has a new box score format this season (as shown in the Red-Blue box score that is attached). Ken Pomeroy says he likes the fouls drawn and blocks against but cautions against plus-minus number that sometimes need context.
