Another player who is coming on strong as of late is UTRGV's Lesley Varner II. If there is still a WAC POTY race, Varner is in the mix now.

Varner has been impressive of late, but still not as good as Acquaah. Varner is averaging 17.3 points and 1.6 assists per game in conference. Acquaah is averaging 18.9 points per game and 5.0 assists per game in conference. I think Acquaah will be the POTY.

I guess the more interesting question is if Jans will be the Coach of the Year for a third consecutive season. He should be the favorite, but I think Rick Croy of CBU is probably in the conversation. CBU is 9th in points per game in the nation at 80.7, 13th in the nation in three point shooting at 38.2 percent, 7th in the nation in free throw shooting at 78.4 percent and 7th in the nation in rebounding at 41.0 rebounds per game. The defense has been a problem for CBU and their bench is thin. NMSU is ranked 7th in points per game allowed at 60.1 points per game. Jans has done a great job of developing a deep bench. I would vote for Jans but it could be close.

Let's see, 9th in the nation, 13th in the nation and 7th in the nation. 21-8 (10-4). Yeah, CBU sucks...07-coffee3

I'm sure they will in many sports hopefully, given the close distance with SOME schools, as well as relationships the coaches have all formed through the years. 04-cheers

Tradition dictates that when a school leaves the WAC, that school will not schedule WAC schools in the future. Especially when it comes to Men's basketball.
