        The final weeks of the regular season will not only determine a champion in Conference USA, but also could go a long way toward deciding who becomes the league's Player of the Year.

        University of Cincinnati junior Steve Logan is making a strong case.

        Logan led UC in scoring for the 11th consecutive game Sunday night with 19 points. He is averaging 17 points per game.

        Logan's top competitors for C-USA's Player of the Year award (alphabetically):

        • South Florida junior Altron Jackson: He was last season's Sixth Man of the Year and is the nation's top-scoring sixth man this season (20.4 ppg). He leads C-USA in scoring (overall and in league games only) and averages 4.9 rebounds.

        • Marquette senior Brian Wardle: The conference's No.2 all-time scorer had 22 against UC Sunday night. He's averaging 19.5 points per game.

        • Charlotte freshman Rodney White: He might be the leading candidate had he not missed five games with a bone bruise on his knee. He is second in the league in scoring (20.0 ppg).

        • Memphis junior Kelly Wise: He is the league's leading rebounder (10.6) and also averages 15.0 points. He is the dominant player on one of the teams with the best records in league play, but the Tigers' two straight losses this week may have hurt his cause.

        Former Bearcat Kenyon Martin was named C-USA Player of the Year last season, and Danny Fortson won the award in 1996 and '97.
