Re: Around the League

All-Conference teams are pretty much eye wash, but it always seems the All-Defensive team is the most shallow. If you're a shot blocker, forget it. You're on that team. Having said that, Osunniyi probably deserves to be on that list of five, as he does a lot more defensively than just block shots, but it seems foolish to not have a VCU player.

I would have to look but my guess is that the top defensive teams have most of the most efficient defensive players. My guess is that team defense drives the individual efficiency numbers. These lists don't matter, anyway. Who cares.

As Bill notes, they generally go to supposed individual performers strictly on numbers.

Re: Around the League

I'm not saying Osun should have been defensive POY, but I don't think he should have lost it to Bess. I think it has something to do with being a freshman.

Lofton not making an overall all-conference team doesn't bother me, there are 14 teams and just 15 players so.. again.. freshman and obviously he made that team.

There really isn't much to pick on, agree with AA that at least one VCU player was probably all-defense material. And I'm sure the all-academic team should get argued all day.

ETA: And congrats to Stockard. Quite a ride he's had, he deserves everything.

Re: Around the League

SJU will have a home and home beginning next year with Bradley (not great) and Buffalo (not bad).

Re: Around the League

So I guess you could say that GW has lost its MoJo.

Re: Around the League

You'd better be careful, Jaffie. I swear, you're starting to turn into a one-trick pony.

When Dayton starts making decisions incorporating their effect on the league, let me know. I'm not saying you're wrong, but I will say that you're almost certainly pissing into the wind.

That’s what my wife says res. Unlike you, she doesn’t have the option of an “ignore feature”.

Here's a fun fact about Maurice Joseph: he had a better A10 conference record in the past three seasons than Phil Martelli.

He had a pretty good team with two NBA caliber players when he was the interim coach in year one. Phil has a better record over the past two years. My point above, was that GW hired a coach that was arguably not qualified and gave him two years.

It’s easy to say that GW did this or failed to do that, when in reality it was a crazy AD.
