Another guard — 6-foot freshman Jawun Evans — has stepped up in Forte’s absence. Evans, who averages 12.4 points a game off 44.8 percent shooting (83 assists, 41 turnovers), scored an OSU-freshman-record 42 points off 18-of-31 shooting (2-for-2 from three) with six assists, five turnovers and seven rebounds in a 74-72 home loss to Oklahoma on Jan. 13 in Stillwater.

One AP voter left Baylor off of his ballot but included Hawaii. Neither of those decisions make any sense. And that's the focus of this week's Poll Attacks.
Auburn has now violated the rule twice since it went into effect in 2004. The first violation came after Auburn beat Alabama in the 2013 Iron Bowl with the epic "Kick Six." Since Auburn is a repeat violator, the school must pay a $100,000 fine.
