SAFE FOR ANOTHER WEEK
Caleb Swanigan (Purdue) – A quarterfinal overtime loss to eventual B1G Ten champs Michigan was the only action for Purdie and Swanigan, who pitched in with 13 and 13.
Frank Mason (Kansas) – Kansas slipped up in the Big 12 tournament to VCU but it was no fault of Mason’s who played every minute for his 29 points.

ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK
Josh Hart (Villanova) – Three games last week in Villanova’s run to the Big East Conference Title, with Hart performing admirably in all three.
Lonzo Ball (UCLA) – Finished 1-1 in the Pac 12 title race with a pair of underwhelming performances.
Malik Monk (Kentucky) – Again showed his inconsistencies in the Wildcats run to another SEC Conference Title.

YOU ARE THE WEAKEST LINK…
WHEN he gets drafted in the lottery this upcoming season Malik Monk isn’t going to remember that he missed out on cracking the top four in the Weekly Wooden Weakest Link list (say that 10 times really fast). However he is the unfortunate one to go again slightly hampered by his teams success. He filled up the stat sheet on a nightly basis and could help Kentucky go on a deep tournament run, but his Wooden award dreams are over for now.
