AP All-America Team: Griffin Unanimous

March 30th, 2009

The Story: Blake Griffin, the leading rebounder in the nation, was the only unanimous selection for the All-American team. Griffin received 71 first-team votes. The voters submit the ballots before the NCAA tournament. The Sooners were bounced from the tournament yesterday by North Carolina, led by fellow All-American Tyler Hansbrough. Hansbrough was a unanimous selection last year while also being named the consensus player of the year as a junior. This is the fourth straight season that he has earned All-American honors.

And then their were four. Pitt and Villanova put on a performance for the ages, with Scottie Reynolds buzzer-beating layup sure to be replayed for many years to come. While Reynolds was the man of the hour for Villanova, he wasn’t good enough to crack CHN’s five man All-Elite Eight squad.

CollegeHoops.net: NCAA Tournament All-First Round Team

March 21st, 2009
DeJuan Blair - Pittsburgh

It took until the final hours of Friday night before March Madness started living up to its moniker. #12 Wisconsin came back late to upend #5 Florida St in overtime, and #13 Cleveland State added further misery to the ACC by knocking off Wake Forest. The Vikings pretty much owned Wake Forest from the opening tip, and while Cedric Jackson doesn't make CHN's All-First Round team, he deserves to be mentioned.

Aaahh, mid-March, my favorite time of the year.  ESPN has finally switched to covering college basketball full-time, and I’m sweating bullets over which 12-seed will get past the first round.
