Andre Hollins: Shot just 12-for-58 (20.1 percent) from the field in a five-game stretch from Dec. 31 to Jan. 13, then averaged 21.3 points per game on 53 percent shooting over an eight-game stretch from Jan. 17 to February 12.


Mo Walker: Has increased his scoring (from 7.8 points a game last year to 11.5 points a game now) and rebounding (4.5 rebounds a game to 6.5 now) averages, but isn’t expected to be a first or second All-Big Ten selection.

DeAndre Mathieu: Started 24 of 30 games this year, but hasn’t found the same offensive consistency. He’s averaging 8.5 points after putting up 12 per game last season.


Elliott Eliason: After starting 35 games a year ago, the center’s role has shrunk significantly. He’s played just two minutes in the last three games and has watched his averages dwindle accordingly.
