If the season ended today, it would be highway robbery if he didn't get BE POY and first team AA.

Saw on the tube last night somebody (can't remember who - maybe from CBS?) had Markus third on his national POY list, behind Zion and Murray State's Morant.

Hard to believe national media would pick a guy from Murray State who is averaging fewer points than a guy from Marquette, but nonetheless it certainly means Markus is an AA at this point.

He 100% was fouled, guy clearly got him on the arm. As difficult as officiating basketball is, that was a pretty bad miss for the ref who was standing just a few feet away.

I mean come on ... Markus swished about 348 straight 3s from every angle with guys draped all over him ... and now he's short by 5 feet on one without getting fouled?

I laughed at this no-call.  Was thinking the exact same thing.

Maybe Matt Norlander? Morant leads the nation in assists at 9.9/game in addition to his 23.3 ppg. He won't win NPOY on a Murray State team that might not even win their conference (Belmont is also solid) but he's a heck of a player.

The announcer immediately afterwards said "That's not a foul! Just an airball".

That along with the non-explanation of the missed out of bounds call in OT had me losing my damn mind.

Wade had 10 TOs vs UAB in the 2003 C-USA quarterfinals.

Wow. How'd you turn up that stat? I looked and couldn't find it. But I did run across this quote from James Harden after he set an all-time NBA record for most turnovers (13!) in a 2015 playoff game:

"I put so much pressure on myself to be really good every single night. And in some cases, you're not going to do that. You're not going to be good."

Rockets head coach Kevin McHale added, "Look, James didn't play well. But as I've said all year long, we don't win the division, we don't win 56 games...if it wasn't for how James played all year long."

Meh. Wilt had 100 once. Not impressed at all with 53.

Sometimes there's an advantage watching from a bar with no volume available.

Morant leads the nation in assists at 9.9/game in addition to his 23.3 ppg. He won't win NPOY on a Murray State team that might not even win their conference (Belmont is also solid) but he's a heck of a player.

Thanks for that info. Sounds like a fine player. I don't watch too many Murray State games (translation: I have only watched one in my life, the time we beat them in the NCAA tournament during Buzz's tenure), but this kid sounds good.

I hope it's because it's only a little past lunchtime and Rocky isn't back from Arby's yet that he hasn't changed the SOTG from Sacar last game to Mr. 53 for the Creighton game...

MARKUS. 

53 points, 10/14 from three, and the assist that put the game into OT.

Yep.  Is it a top 5?  Butch to Jerome, Vander against Davidson, Doc against ND, Novak, and this (not necessarily in order)?  Am I missing anything super big?

Somebody should start a thread.

If you're going Vander against Davidson, you should add Vander against StJ.  DJO against Cuse, Junior against UCONN could be there too.  Team hadn't hit one all day before then.  I believe that was also the game where the refs had the teams going the wrong way in OT.

Started a poll.  I suppose we could have 10 options but I'll play this with a smaller list.

Busy couple days.  Obviously Howard.  But as the game went on, I really did want others to be recognized.

Sam for being a stud even before nailing the 3 for OT. 
Joey for hitting FTs (and doing generally good Joey things).
Joe for hitting FTs (confidently).
Theo for an and 1 (at a crucial moment).

I showed (read: forced to watch) my daughter's boyfriend, who plays HS hoops, the last few minutes of the game plus OT.   He was stunned and could only basically say "No way!" as Markus hit shot after shot, and "Theo!" for his three great defensive plays.
