I wasn't at all disregarding Marreon's impressive year. My point was that winning the title gave him another factor in his favor when compared to to guys like Loren Jackson, Preston and Turner. He's certainly a deserving recipient.League needs to recruit some centers or something.
Might be a little more to it than that.
From the Toledo Board: MJ - Only player in nation averaging 17ppg, 6rpg. & 6apg. 1 of only 3 players in nation with 2 or more triple-doubles. He also has six double-doubles in last nine games. I believe his 92% FT has him top ten. Of the first team, only Turner has a lower TO rate and none match his steals per game. Those are rates, not totals and he kept the numbers high playing 3-7 more games. I enjoy watching LCJ all-day but there really wasn't much doubt this year for POY IMO.
Same for Rollins FOY, who got time early where other teams were a bit slower getting their Freshman into the rotation. It's an impressive Freshman team don't you think?
A good case could be made for Littleson on first. All-Defensive while shooting most 3's in the nation at the second highest rate. Don't see that combinatin everyday.
I am not looking forward to seeing Ball St in the first round. They got some match-ups on Toledo.
Very impressive freshmen team. Certainly bodes well for the Rockets and BG.
Akron having no one on the 2nd or 3rd teams is telling. Indicative of their season which saw no one other than Jackson step up.
BG could pose a real problem for Akron. The Metheny kid has really come into his own and has given them a viable third option to go with Turner and Plowden.
