Looks about right to me. Just based off the eye test, I think Tookie Brown is the best player in the conference, but that might just be because he went off against us both games.

I can win with 13 Blibao's on the roster.

I think you make a good point. He was a force in our game with UTA.

Bilbao certainly should have gotten some all conference recognition.

At the very least, he's almost certainly the most fun player to watch in the conference.

Tough call between Simonds and Pearson for Freshman of the Year. They're very close statistically.

I'm biased of course but I give the edge to Pearson.

Yep. It was obviously gonna come down to Simonds and Pearson (Ajayi 3rd probably), but I have to say I was a bit shocked Simonds got it over Pearson. I really thought Pearson likely had it locked up.

Well Simonds averaged 15 a game in conference, scoring double digits in all but one of those games. He also had five 20+ point games in that stretch. I think GSU's success will hinge on his play in the tourney. Pearson did play very well in the game I saw them play at GSU so it is certainly close.

Big problem with Bilbao is he is a big complainer, rubs a lot of folks the wrong way. I don't know if he's every committed a foul in his mind.

RE: Basketball All-Conference Team
I havent really paid attention to the list in recent years (for obvious reasons) but is the first team younger than in years past?

I take that to mean that the conference is going to continue to be very competive over the next couple of years.

I have seen him raise his hands and I have seen him get rightfully upset at calls that aren't going both ways. For whatever reason, he gets more scrutiny and less benefit of the doubt.

And there are a few times where he seemed wrong for the reaction.
