Khyri had a better overall season than both of those guys. He got robbed.

Plus he is the best defender in the league - do not even getting honorable mention is ludicrous.

JP making second team should signal that he will get FOY.

Surprised by Khyri's snub as well...

I said at the beginning of the the season that we had three NBA players, and I thought then, and now, that Tazz was the best. And no, Mo is not an NBA player.
So long Valley, hello big time.

If only we would have beaten Villanova during the regular season. That would have taken our program to the next level.

I continue to wonder to this day what would have been if Mo doesn't pick up those two silly and unnecessary fouls against Nova. We're up 19-9 and cruising at the 13:59 mark and then Mo goes out and it's allNova from then on. Could have been a special season and something many of us have been looking forward to since the Baylor defeat.

Alas, the sweet 16 wait continues.

Creighton goes 5 - 1 vs sweet 16 teams and 2 of those wins came w/o Watson.
The lone lost was to Xavier when we blew a 9 point lead at halftime and many chances at the end to win.
Sure, advancing would have been great but there were many good things about this season even w/o Watson.
Good season Jays.

I continue to wonder what would have happened if Coach Mac didn't unnecessarily put Mo back into the Xavier game, seriously hobbling, to where he blew out his knee a few minutes later. Why was he in the game? That decision was the first domino in a series of events that ruined arguably our best season (potential). I know you can't coddle these guys, and hindsight is always 20/20, but I hated the decision then and I hate it just as much today.
