Evan Turner

Whether Evan Turner was dunking his head off, or beating Michigan with 1/4-court last second shots, or recovering from an early-season broken back to lead Ohio State to the Big Ten title, one thing’s pretty clear: While a lot of people were busy doing the John Wall Dance, college basketball was moving the sounds of Evan Turner and his successful Player of the Year campaign. For his efforts, Turner averaged 20 points, a hair under six assists and almost 10 rebounds a game, all while being Thad Matta’s primary playmaker for the Buckeyes’ offensive possessions.

Keep in mind that, as the primary ball-handler, Turner’s height is listed as 6-7.

Sounds like someone’s been attending “The Scottie Pippen School of Effective Basketball,” because the Villain’s game is awfully similar. Of course, playing along side a Michael Jordan only helped make Pippen greater, and it’s doubtful Turner will get to be paired with such an awesome basketball specimen, unless the Cleveland Cavaliers or the Miami Heat somehow wind up with a top three pick in the NBA draft.

Turner’s Player of the Year award was won in a landslide fashion. While John Wall was considered to be Turner’s primary competition, when the final voting was tallied, Turner received 54 votes (out of 65) to Wall’s nine. Of course, Wall is poised to be the overall top draft pick, so I think he’ll be OK with not winning the award.

Evan Turner Is Simply Fantastic

Words fail when it come to describing what Evan Turner did to end the Michigan/Ohio State game. “Bad defense on Michigan’s part” might come to mind, but you still have to make the shot.

And Turner did. In fine style.

Obviously, I’m a John Wall lover, but Evan Turner = Player of the Year. And that shot was his exclamation point.

Evan Turner Dunks His Head Off

Apparently, Evan Turner can dunk so hard, he takes his own head off.

Wall Or Turner? Turner Or Wall?

Wall or Turner

Now that the college basketball regular season has ended — YAY, MARCH MADNESS — it’s time to hand out end-of-the-year awards. In the Player of the Year category, it’s down to two players. Sorry about that Scottie Reynolds, Wes Johnson and whoever else you think deserves time here. It’s all John Wall and Evan Turner, all of the time. So with that in mind, who ya got?

Revisiting The Preseason All-Americans

Sherron Collins

As is the case every preseason, the AP released a list of players who comprised their All-Americans and now that we are about a week and change away from Selection Sunday, how did their choices hold up? Would the choices still be the same now that the bulk of the season has been played? First off, the preseason list:

Luke Harangody – Senior Forward, Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Cole Aldrich – Junior Center, Kansas Jayhawks
Sherron Collins – Senior Guard, Kansas Jayhawks
Patrick Patterson – Junior Forward, Kentucky Wildcats
Kyle Singler, Junior Forward, Duke Blue Devils

That’s a pretty stout list, regardless of what team you root for. All of these players have had good-to-great seasons, knee injuries notwithstanding. But would this group still be apart of the first-team All American roster if it was assembled today? How about some players that may have been left off?
