Jamine Peterson, Providence: After getting only sporadic playing time as a freshman in 2007-08, Peterson, a 6-foot-6 forward, took a redshirt last season. Now he’s averaging 18.3 points per game, which ranks sixth in the Big East. An unbelievable athlete with incredible leaping ability, Peterson scored 24 points in Providence’s loss at Notre Dame on Wednesday. The Friars play at St. John’s on Sunday.
