As much as I think he's arrogant, why not Talor Battle from Penn State?

Not sure what the overall criteria is for this award, or if there is one, but Matt Howard from Butler should be included on your list.

what about Jacob Pullen?
Mr. I won't play in the NIT doesn't deserve it.

Bit of a homer comment, I think, but I believe Jordan Taylor deserves a spot on this list. Obviously everyone there has had a phenomenal season, but I like Taylor over Mickey McConnell, Marcus Denmon, Terrence Jones, Trevor Mbawke, Demetri McCamey, Kyle Singler, Brad Wanamaker and Jordan Williams. But I could be wearing red and white goggles too, and all of those guys I mentioned are deserving. It's a tough call, but it's a good list.
