Jeff Withey, C, Kansas, Jr.
Dude is playing out of his mind right now. Check out his last three stat lines:
-25 points, 5 rebounds, 3 blocked shots versus Baylor
-18 points, 20 rebounds, 7 blocked shots against Oklahoma State
-18 points, 11 rebounds, 9 blocked shots versus Kansas State
Wow, right? If those type of numbers don’t draw the attention of NBA scouts, I am not sure what will. Withey is a true seven-footer and has gotten exponentially better as the season has progressed. He is deceptively athletic but needs to get stronger. It is unlikely he turns pro after this season as his offensive game could use some more seasoning but since he is a redshirt junior, Withey might be tempted to leave after this season. NBA teams are always look...

Kansas center Jeff Withey has been selected Phillips 66 Big 12 Player of the Week, for games of Feb. 7-12 in voting by a panel of media covering the Conference. It is the first conference weekly accolade for Withey and sixth time in 2011-12 that a Jayhawk has earned Big 12 Player of the Week honors.
Lately, Kansas center Jeff Withey has resembled nothing so much as the Kool-Aid Man - albeit a much taller, thinner version - breaking through the proverbial wall. He's earned conference and national Player of the Week honors, and in the process has made the Jayhawks that much tougher to deal with on the court.
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Travis Ford has a theory about why Jeff Withey has emerged as an unsung star for No. 7 Kansas: The 7-footer
finally realized he's playing next to Thomas Robinson.
For the second time this season, junior center Jeff Withey missed a triple-double by a single block to lead No. 4/5 Kansas to a season sweep of Sunflower Showdown rival Kansas State, 59-53, on ESPN Big Monday at Bramlage Coliseum.
Tyshawn Taylor had 20 points in a virtuoso performance for No. 4 Kansas, which fended off a stiff test from Kansas State for a 59-53 victory Monday night that put the Jayhawks alone in first place in the Big 12. Jeff Withey added 18 points and 11 rebounds in another impressive performance, helping make up for an off game by Thomas Robinson and allow the Jayhawks (21-5, 11-2) to win for the 36th...
