best nba undergraduates

Still waiting for the lockout to end, so I have to be satisfied with articles like this rating the NBA's best rookies, sophomores, juniors, and seniors.

In summary,

The five best seniors are (in reverse order): Eric Gordon, Marc Gasol, Kevin Love, Russell Westbrook, Derrick Rose.

Juniors: Ty Lawson, Serge Ibaka, James Harden, Tyreke Evans, Stephen Curry

Sophomores: Derrick Favors, DeMarcus Cousins, Greg Monroe, John Wall, Blake Griffin

Freshmen: ?, ?, ?, Derrick Williams, Kyrie Irving

??? Not sure who third, fourth, five place freshman are. Tristan Thompson was voted first by one writer, but wasn't even mentioned by the other four. So give him 5 points. Enes Kanter had 1 second place vote and 1 third place vote. So give him 7 points. Bismack Biyombo had 1 second place vote and 1 fourth place votes. 6 points. Kemba Walker has 1 third place vote, and 2 fifth place votes. So that's 5 points. But Walker is the only other player besides Irving and Williams to be chosen by three writers. Lemme make a table.
                  5  4  3  2  1  points
Kyrie Irving 1 1 1 2 19
Derrick Williams 1 1 2 15
Enes Kanter 1 1 7
