March Madness is the time of year in which college basketball is glorified and takes the national stage.
The basketball itself is wonderful, but it is often easy to forget that these players are student-athletes. Academic All-Americans are named each and every year, but this honor is one that is often overlooked.
Such players should be honored and distinguished just as much as All-Americans and NCAA Tournament teams, but they aren't.
I'm looking to justify the situation, and give these players the props they deserve.
