RE: WAC Player of the Year Candidates
GCU has 3 player of the year Candidates

Josh Braun-JB (The Mayor) can be a dominant shooter if he stays healthy. Last season's WAC Pre-season player of the year looks to win it this year.




Casey Benson-Pac 12 player who has played in a Final 4. He already will be the best ball protector in the league.




Keonta Vernon-Skys the limit for Keonta. Don't sleep on this dude. He has been working hard with DeWayne Russell all off season. I think he is going to surprise some folks

Casey Benson!??? You're crazy. Braun and Chuha are my top two picks. Everyone else is unproven. Loften is intriging because he is a reigning POY of a similar conference like the WAC.

RE: WAC Player of the Year Candidates
8 WAC teams. 15 players per team. Multiply the 5. Carry the 4. By my estimation, there are approximately 120 WAC Player of the Year candidates at this point.

No need to thank me. It's really just simple math, until any 1 of the 120 actually play a game in the 2017-18 season.

From SU, Aaron Menzies if he stays healthy is a legit threat. Reigning FOY Matej Kavas is a dark horse. Gittens, a 3star grad transfer from Weber State, is a name to watch too

How's this for a prediction: It's an 8-horse race for who will win the WAC this year!

Bold enough for you, Clarity?

If you don't have a prediction, dont care enough to have one, or want to be overly-literal about it, I dont see the need to post on the thread unless you just love being a smartass that much

Ever since or even a little before the epilepsy-twitter incident you have been different, man. You always had good discussions on here and Twitter about WAC basketball. Not just passive aggressive sarcasm and standoffishness. Idk maybe just me. Hope you're doing okay, Gabe. I mean that. Especially if this Kimasa pick is serious, then I really question all this lol 03-wink

Hahahaha for real.

Let us make our conjectures--it's what fans do.

My top candidates?

Ndir
Braun
Chuha
Neilson

Casey Benson will definitely be a factor at GCU. I'm not sure he will be better point guard than Russell a season ago but I think he could really help the Lopes as a secondary ball handler playing the #2 guard; in tandem with either Carr or Milstead at the point. Benson is not a true dribble driving, facilitating point guard; if he were, he wouldn't have lost his starting spot last season to a true freshman at Oregon. Benson's strengths appear to be his high basketball IQ (exemplified by his impressive A/T ratio) and his three point shooting. He will give GCU some stability in the back court; and, probably work well and compliment Braun's game.

RE: WAC Player of the Year Candidates
Damiyne Durham will be the main scoring threat and will be carrying a heavy scoring burden with Airington and Basile gone. I'm expecting him to average 20 ppg. He will be a serious contender. I also think Shon Briggs is going to have a huge year. He was dominant in the NIT. A dark horse pick.

Yeah. Intriguing. Did you see who was recruiting Loften? In the other hand you have a guy that averaged 5 points a game. The purple propaganda machine is hard at it acting like Benson is some big time recruit. Maybe out of high school he was but if you think he is as good as Russell you know nothing. Now you picking Vernon over Chuha proves you are a hopeless purple koolaid drinker. I will now be referring to you as purple Frank.
