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.

East coast bias prevented the jimer from getting the COY. What'a they know.

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.

The name is "KEMBA" hedgehog; but, as usual, your spelling is about as good as your analysis.

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?

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.
