OSU's Marcus Smart puts some local interest into watch list for the Wayman Tisdale Freshman of the Year Award. Along with the Cowboys' dynamic breakout player, here are five more first-year players to consider, due to their early season play:

F Anthony Bennett, UNLV: At 6-foot-8, Bennett can play and score inside and out. He has dominated for the Rebels so far.

G Jordan Adams, UCLA: The Bruins have gotten off to a sluggish start, but not because of Adams, who wasn't even the most hyped recruit on his own team — that was Shabazz Muhammad.

G Rasheed Sulaimon, Duke: Quickly trusted by Coach K, Sulaimon has developed into a premium perimeter threat for the Blue Devils.

F Sam Dekker, Wisconsin: With Josh Gasser out for the season, Dekker's role has expanded. And he's responded.

G Semaj Christon, Xavier: A point guard who scores and dishes and leads. Sounds a lot like Smart.
