Hedgehog. Tryn looking at the players kimba played with and the players JIMMER
played with. If you would have an openn mind you would know why Jimmer is the
player of the year.
I think HH has a point. But he's not taking into consideration what every other
POY panel has. 1. Jimmer has consistently excelled every game this year. Kemba
has had major down time. 2. Jimmer has achieved this surrounded by far less
talented players. You say Jimmer didn't step up in the last loss when he was
double and triple teamed. The other players didn't step to take the pressure off
him. Kemba has the luxury of a big athletic back court which enables him to
enjoy far more one on one situations, open looks and open lanes. After all your
nay saying, will you finally be able to congratulate him if he wins?
The name is "KEMBA" hedgehog; but, as usual, your spelling is about as
good as your analysis.
It's really a shame that these kind of awards come out before the NCAA
tournement is over. Fans like winners, you know, when it counts.It
looks like Kimba will lead Uconn to the National Championship game. Over the
past 9 games Uconn has buzz sawed through the toughest teams in the
Nation....Kimba leading the way.I truly believe the "player of
the Year" is a guy who makes his team better and wins when it counts.BYU lost the game against Florida because the jimer wouldn't allow his
team mates the chance to be their best.
Congratulations (again) Jimmer!

Well deserved awards for Jimmer and Coach Brey. What a way to finish your
college basketball career. It has been a blast to watch. Go BYU
and everything Cougar
East coast bias prevented the jimer from getting the COY. What'a they know.
Well deserved by both men. I look forward to watching Jimmer in the NBA. He will
become a MVP in the NBA. He has a great work ethic.
