College Basketball has an award called Player of the Year. No doubt Tyler Hansborough should have won it last year. Is the Player of the Year the same as an MVP (Most Valuable Player)?


Almost all College Basketball fans can now turn on any sports channel and see the name Stephen Curry. He is taking the world by storm, and doing it with an average team. He has put up 44 points twice this year against an ACC team (NC State) and Oklahoma, who by the way has a front-runner for POY in Blake Griffin.

Will he be considered for Player of the Year at the end of the season? Probably not.

Davidson plays in the Southern Conference, and while no disrespect is shown to the SOCON, Curry will no doubt be overlooked, regardless of his NCAA Tournament coming out party last year.

I call for a change, or an addition.

There needs to be an MVP award in College Basketball, because no matter how many points Stephen Curry drops on a College of Charleston, or Appalachian State, he will be looked over by the end of the season.
