Last week, Kentucky freshman forwards (and roommates) Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist were named to the Midseason Top 25 for the Wooden Award, which recognizes the player of the year in college basketball. In case you needed any more proof that Davis and Kidd-Gilchrist are among the nation's top players, CBSSports.com released its weekly take on the race for player of the year and the pair of Wildcats were prominently featured.

Davis checks in at fourth and Jeff Goodman and Gary Parrish had this to say about the record-setting native of Chicago, Ill.:

Comment: Davis has only averaged 7.5 points in the past two games -- wins against Alabama and Georgia. However, the long and versatile freshman's impact isn't measured by the points he puts on the board. He grabbed 20 rebounds in the past two games, blocked nine shots and changes the game on the defensive end.

Kidd-Gilchrist is No. 7:

Comment: It's difficult to put up eye-popping numbers on a team loaded with talent like the Wildcats, but MKG is still managing to impress just about every time out. He averaged 13.5 points and 8.5 boards in a pair of wins over Alabama and Georgia and has a motor that rivals just about anyone in the country.
