Maybe the coaches will come to their senses and choose Evans over someone like Jalen Adams who is less efficient and whose team is not a contender. If Milton returns to play this season he will definitely make 1st team.


Clark, Evans, Gray, Shamet.

Milton or a replacement

Finally thereís Sean Kilpatrick. He was honored today, yes, but not with the award many of us had thought he deserved, Player of the Year. No, that went to UConnís Shabazz Napier with Kilpatrick going home with a Sportsmanship Award


--That is what I am referring to

My bad. I didn't remember that. I thought that was Caupain who got that.

Yeah I agree. And I'd go with Jeremiah Martin as the replacement I think.

No need to spread the wealth on the awards too much. If a player is deserving like Gary and Jacob then they should get what they deserve. I think we should have 2 first teamers and 1 second teamer (Kyle). I think Evans being left off would be highway robbery. He could easily be taking more shots and provide the point totals the voters are looking for...at lower efficiency. Players should not be rewarded for volume shooting IMO.

Cumberland probably deserves 2nd team because of his all around game but he hasn't been a high scorer or all that efficient so far.

It was the banner hanging in 5/3

The AAC did not want to give UC the awards for best coach, defensive and MVP, so gave SK some bogus award. Could be same predicament this year with Cronin and Clark
