That's what she said.

Thanks Paultz.
Interesting that Mustapha didn’t make the List, nor the ‘Just Missed’ category. His uncertain ‘eligibility’ status perhaps?

#32? And 3 returning Big East players ahead of him?

I'll take the player who put up monster numbers against the top tier teams over nearly everyone else on that list.

Ponds didn't appear to be playing at 100% for nearly the entire month of January. It wasn't until the Xavier game that he started playing well. He scored at least 15 points in his final 9 games. How many other players on the list were the the main star in wins over top 5 teams?

He also missed a couple games right before the BET, so it's hard to say how often he was actually playing at full strength. I think a lot of times these articles just look at season totals and don't take other factors into account.

So glad we have Ponds back.

32 way too low. Just one more motivation for Shamorie to have a phenomenal year. Two BE guards rated ahead of him?

I agree, especially with many touting him as the preseason Big East POY

I don’t want to jinx him but every time he plays against Markus Howard, Ponds eats him up.

Ponds is a great player but to be fair he shot 25% from 3...that's horrid. Yes he was hurt for some time, I know. But even still that number is shockingly bad for a player of his caliber. If he can prove he can shoot 37-40% from 3, he's probably in college basketball's top 10. He must improve his 3 point shooting, but if Heron is playing he will attract a lot of attention from teams and free him up more which will help him be more efficient.
