2007 NCAA Tournamenet: All Elite-Eight Team

March 26th, 2007
Georgetown

Best Performance: Greg Oden, Ohio State

One can only imagine Coach John Calipari’s reaction.

Trying to get ready for his Elite Eight showdown with the #1 team in the country, a team on a 20 game winning streak, he opens up the newspaper or turns on the TV and discovers what his star forward Joey Dorsey had been saying about his match-up with Greg Oden:

"I'm an underrated big man and he's a lot overrated as a big man."

"I'm going to have a 20-rebound night.."

"I'm Goliath… he's the little man."

2007 NCAA Tournament: All-Second Round Team

March 19th, 2007
Ohio St

Best Performance: Ron Lewis, Ohio State

In the best game of the Tournament so far, there were plenty of great performances to choose from, particularly from two Buckeyes who willed their team to an improbable victory. Neither of them was named Greg Oden.

Not that Oden, who ended up with his umpteenth double-double, had an off night. But after fouling out with his team down nine and less than three minutes to play, it was up to Oden’s teammates to step it up and save their season. You probably know the rest.

2007 NCAA Tournament: All-First Round Team

VCU

Best performance: Eric Maynor, VCU

Eric Maynor had reason to be nervous. After all, here he was playing in his first ever NCAA Tournament. He had just come off a brilliant performance against George Mason in the Colonial Athletic Conference title game, to earn his team only their second NCAA berth in 20 years. And who did they find themselves matched up with come Selection Sunday? The Duke Blue Devils.

Big East: All-Conference Team

March 5th, 2007
Big East

In terms of individual performances there have been some major surprises this season in the Big East. Quite a few players who were picked to earn all-conference honors prior to the season did not live up to expectations, while others who were relatively unheralded have had outstanding seasons. Some players, of course, did live up to their advance billing and deserve to be considered for post-season awards.
