There is a real possibility the best player in the Pac-10 this season didn't score a single point last season. And no, we're not referring to a freshman or junior college transfer.
His name is Leon Powe (15.1 ppg, 9.5 rpg) and if you don't know it now, you will soon. He was the Pac-10 Freshman of the Year in 2003-04, when he led the Bears in scoring and rebounding. Powe also led the conference in rebounding, something no other Pac-10 freshman had done.
