CHN All-Sweet Sixteen Team: Curry is MOP

March 29th, 2008

The clock has struck midnight and the chariot has turned back into a pumpkin for all the Cinderellas except for Davidson. Not surprisingly their star is CHN’s Sweet Sixteen Most Outstanding Player. Sweet Sixteen MOP: Stephen Curry, Davidson
33 points, four assists, four steals, three boards

There really wasn’t much deliberation with this selection – everything about Stephen Curry’s Sweet Sixteen game was Most Outstanding. He totally scorched a very tough defensive team in Wisconsin and is off to the Elite Eight. Pretty amazing stuff considering he is only 12-years-old (What’s that you say? He’s actually 20?!? Seriously? Can someone verify that?!).

MOP Runner Up: Josh Duncan, Xavier
26 points, five boards, 3-4 3pts

The senior Josh Duncan picked a fine time to come up with his career-high in points – the Musketeers needed every one of them to get by West Virginia.

All Sweet Sixteen Team:

Guard: Stephen Curry, Davidson

Guard: D.J. Augustin, Texas - 23 points, seven assists, five boards, two steals
The short Longhorn slays the Stanford giants.

Guard/Forward: Earl Clark, Louisville - 17 points, 12 boards, four blocks, two steals
It’s a nice luxury to be able to get a stat line like that from a bench player.

Forward: Kevin Love, UCLA - 29 points, 14 boards, four assists, four blocks
The man-child has another monster game. All other centers need not apply – the position has been filled.

Forward: Josh Duncan, Xavier
