UK’s Anthony Davis Wins AP Player of the Year

As expected, Kentucky big man and projected No. 1 pick in this year’s NBA Draft Anthony Davis was named college basketball’s POY by the AP today. ESPN.com as the details: “Anthony Davis is The Associated Press men’s college basketball Player of the Year, the first Kentucky player and second freshman to win the award. He received 43 votes Friday from the 65-member national media panel that selects the weekly Top 25. Balloting was done before the NCAA tournament. The 6-foot-10 player from Chicago is the Southeastern Conference’s player, freshman and defensive player of the year. He averaged 14.3 points, 10.0 rebounds and 4.6 blocks while shooting 64.2 percent. His block total is a school record and third-best for a freshman. Davis averaged the fewest points ever for an AP Player of the Year. The previous mark was held by Patrick Ewing of Georgetown (14.6 ppg) in 1984-85. Kevin Durant of Texas in 2007 is the only other freshman to win the award. Thomas Robinson of Kansas was second with 20 votes, and Draymond Green of Michigan State received the other two votes.”

    why should have robinson won it? Becuase he had good numbers on not as good a team? THats lame. AD made his team way better, with blocks and better passing. And UK has been screwed for years with having not had a player of the year.

    all were spurned.
