IT’S THAT TIME AGAIN. And it actually worked out perfectly in terms of number of spots and number of guys in contention. We originally were going to combine the Anchorage noms into one (because they were all really equal), but then we had spots, so… Brian and Corey get to share, but Suki gets his own as the best above the other two (by the tiniest of bits).
UAF: The always awesome Bangaly had two incredibly solid games against the Oregon schools.
UAA: Suki gets the nod as the official nomination -he in particular had a great shooting game against Concordia.
SFU: N/A —> Corey Hammell and Brian McGill of UAA; Corey’s always got dat rebounding, Brian with the assisting.
WWU: Kyle Impero, heart and soul of the team, played an excessive number of minutes and grabbed an excessive number of boards -which is always a good thing.
SPU: Bryce Leavitt -rebounds, assists, being a leader. He leads by example. Super high motor, gym rat, blah blah blah.
SMU: N/A —> Gilles Dierickx of SPU, good to great shooting and grabbed a bunch of boards. Awesome. Shocking. Very efficient, finally.
MSUB: N/A —> Devon Alexander of WOU, two good games against the brutality that is the Alaska schools.
CWU: Gary Jacobs, played some big minutes against WWU and then kept his head in the game at SFU.
NNU: Bouna -two good games, really good game against the Vikings of Western Washington.
CU-P: N/A —> Trey Dreschel of WWU, had some issues in the CWU game but really went for it against NNU and grabbed a bunch of rebounds -he and Kyle got almost half of the rebounding total in the game themselves.
WOU: Julian Nichols; Julian gonna Julian, great to see him back to his old self in terms of playing tons of minutes and really running that offense against two very good teams.
Everyone was really close. Lots of effort, lots of distribution, although kind of a week of the haves and the have nots in terms of nominations. Go figure. Bouna bucked that trend, so that was great. Winner’ll be up in an hour.
