The college basketball regular season is almost over, and it's time to vote on the regular season awards before the NCAA Tournament starts.
This morning I created a post asking for help with nominations for candidates. I received tons of help (thanks to everyone that lended a hand). Now I am asking for you guys to vote on who you think is the most worthy of each honor.
One of the most interesting awards is player of the year . Stephen Curry (pictured left), Blake Griffin, Dejuan Blair, and Ty Lawson are the leading candidates. Will Griffin's absense hurt him or has his absense shown just how bad Oklahoma needs him. How about with Curry? The Wildcats couldn't even knock off The Citadel without their sharp shooter. Blair just dominated another player of the year candidate, Hasheem Thabeet, last week. Ty Lawson has done everything he's been asked of and more for North Carolina, including taking over games in the second half.
Other tough ones include coach of the year . Could it really be Bill Self just a year after he led his Jayhawks to the national championship?
I can't wait to see the results, especially of the most surprising and disappointing teams. Both of those votes should be very close. Will most disappointing be Georgetown or Notre Dame or will someone else swoop in and claim the honor? The vote for most surprising is probably going to be extremely close so I'm not sure who the favorite is there.
Will Memphis, who has now won 55 straight conference games win the most improved award (from the beginning of the year to now)? There's no doubt that the Tigers are playing a lot better now than they were at the beginning of the season.
If you are a fan of a mid major team don't be worried, because your team has a chance at glory as well. I have included an award for the best mid major team . The problem is that Gonzaga, Xavier, and Memphis are included as mid majors.
There are other interesting votes as well, so make sure you check them all out.
All you have to do is click each link and then vote for the person you think should win. The winners will be announced next week!
