THE BUZZ

POINT GUARDS RISING

Last week, it was an influx of big men that was the story. This week, with three point guards jumping into the Top 10 and displaying NBA-ready skills -- Idaho's Pierre Jackson (scoring at will), Delaware's Kendall Marshall (improved shooting touch) and Santa Cruz's Seth Curry (distributing the ball) -- it's all about the little guys.

Shot Charts: Curry | Jackson | Marshall



BIGGEST RISER

No. 5 KENDALL MARSHALL -- PG -- DELAWARE 87ers

Marshall signed with Delaware on Dec. 3 and made an immediate impact by finishing a rebound shy of a triple-double (31 points, 10 assists, nine rebounds) in his debut against RGV on Dec. 5. In all, Marshall is dishing (9.0 assists/game) and swishing (11-for-20 from 3-point range) while leading Delaware to a 2-1 record since he arrived.



TOP PERFORMANCE

No. 2 PIERRE JACKSON -- DEC. 6. VS. SPRINGFIELD

Jackson has established himself as one of the league's most explosive scorers. On Dec. 6, the 42nd pick in the 2013 NBA Draft went off for an NBA D-League season-high 43 points on 15-for-25 shooting, including hitting six of his 10 attempts from 3-point range. Amongst Prospects, that Baylor product is currently leading the league in scoring (28.6 points/game).



SEEING IS BELIEVING

All season long we have been touting the world class athleticism of No. 4 Prospect Chris Wright. Take a look at this dunk he had against Idaho to see a small preview of what we've been talking about.

KNOCKING ON THE DOOR

JOSH MAGETTE -- G -- LOS ANGELES D-FENDERS

There are plenty of high-profile names in L.A. this year, but Magette's shooting touch and control are starting to open some eyes. He's hit 50 percent (11-for-22) of his 3-point attempts this season and is fourth in the league in assist/turnover ratio (4.14). His minutes have increased, and if that correlates with an increase in production, the Alabama-Huntsville product may find himself in the top 30.
