Five Up, Five Down: Kris Dunn had a good weekend; Mark Gottfried did not

Kris Dunn put on a show on opening weekend. Wait, that's a surprise? Mark L. Baer/USA TODAY Sports

We're starting a new weekly feature called "Five Up, Five Down" in which we'll take a look at a handful of players whose stocks soared significantly over the past week -- and also those whose stocks slipped.

Everyone is eligible -- players, coaches, teams, officials. No one is immune. Not even broadcasters (Beware, Bilas).

This week, we've got a Wooden Award candidate who made a statement right out of the gates and a freshmen who had the best debut among the "Five Up." The "Five Down" include a couple of ACC coaches and one talented big man who continues to make NBA executives wonder whether he's worth the risk.
