Top Big East performers through five weeks

This means absolutely nothing, but I thought that after five weeks of doing these "top performers" things I'd use them to try and see which Big East players are having the best seasons thus far.

I used the simplest scoring scale possible, one point for a No. 10 ranking, two points for a No. 9 ranking, and so on and so on. Obviously there are a number of flaws with this system, the most obvious being a player could have two really good weeks and three absolutely awful weeks, and still be ranked ahead of a player that has been consistently solid all season. My solution to this problem is that I have absolutely no solution, and am just doing this because I feel like it.

I do think, however, that as the weeks add up the point totals will more accurately showcase the players who are having the best seasons in the Big East.
