First of all, congrats to all the GW players who received honors today. All were well deserved. I believe that ML deserved COY due more to what he did last year...he started 4 Freshmen and took his lumps as they gained experience the hard way. This year, they learned how to close out games and the lumps of last year became worth it. McDonald is the other GW guy who got snubbed. Unfortunately he's a guy who while he has good stats, a lot of what he brings doesn't show up in the stats. He's a guy who the more you watch him, the more you appreciate him. I assume that very few who voted saw him as much as we did...
Now to lighten the mood and kill some time as we still have 3 days till we start tourney play. I've been following GW basketball since 1984. Below is my All A10 Douchbag Team. Most are here because of their behavior on and off the court. Some I just hate because of damage they did to GW...
F: Kevin Frey, Xavier - a true goon
F: Doehman, Xavier - Can't remember his first name. Played and whined a lot like Bill Lambier
C: Ramon Rivas, Temple - Still remember teh game in Philly when he sucker punched Moti Daniel in the head
G: Mike Williams, UMass - Man did he kill us
G: Bernard Blunt, St Joes - He was an arrogant SOB and convicted criminal. He did back up his arrogance on the court though
F: Yah Davis, St Joes - He's in jail now, I believe
F: Rodney Blake, St Joes - Still remember him trying to charge into the stands in the Smith Center. If he were a pitcher, scouts would say he had a $1,000,000 arm, 10 cent head
C: Marcus Camby
G: Lynn Greer, Temple - Killed us in more than just that one A10 tourney game
G: Carlton Owens, URI - I remember him taunting the student section I was in during a televised game in 87 or 88. Penders was his coach...
Coach - This is a really tough call, but due to longevity, I have to give Phil Martelli the edge over John Callipari
