Big East Player of the Year as of today?
« on: January 10, 2024, 10:27:43 AM »
With virtually every team having played 4 or 5 games, I'm wondering who might be in consideration for PoY in the conference. Though Kolek was the pre-season PoY, I doubt he would win it as of now (I don't mean to say that he can't or won't once the full season is played). But who? Clingan is out for a chunk of time and Hopkins is out for the season. Baylor Scheierman? Kadary Richardson? Devin Carter? Joel Soriano?

I really don't see any one player standing out in the crowd.

What say you all?

Feels like a best player on the best team kinda year.

Right now Soriano and Richmond have the edge because they are unexpectedly at the top.

If Marquette steps up and wins the league probably Kolek.

If UConn steps up and wins the league maybe Newton.

If Villanova wins the league, Eric Dixon.

If Creighton wins the league, Baylor Scheierman.

If Providence wins the league, Devin Carter.

I would be pretty surprised if it was someone outside of those 7 names.

Pomeroy agrees.

Which caused me to notice that George Mason had a hella team in the making with Xavier Johnson (Mullins will be a hot coach), Oduro, Jordan Miller and Tyler.

If they can get ONE Big East win I'll be mildly surprised.  Vs Georgetown is their best bet.  Vs SHU is the only other game in which they are single digit dogs, but that upset would really surprise me.

Has a BE team ever gone winless in league?  0.200 in 15 games is certainly something for a major conference team.

Edit: yes 2022 Georgetown.  But at least they won 6 games that year.  Edit 2:  Also 2009 DePaul.  But again, won 9 games that year.

I heard they would get rid of Awards within the Conference for the 2023-24 season in this scenario.

Well DePaul may get the MVP with the two easy wins per peer school.

Bump.

Devin Carter has certainly stepped up, and Newton should be in the running. But, I think Tyler is absolutely in the running. Are there any big men that are in the running?

His play has been amazing. It might get him drafted. But I don't think it will get him BEast POY; he's not flashy enough. Even if he might deserve it.

I should have said 'Oso is playing the best among the bigs' in answer to your question.    I do not thing he is BEPOY.

Uconn as a team deserves every accolade right now as the clear team to beat

But its hilarious how many BE only or AA as a whole ballots I see that have Newton over Kolek.

I guess if you want a guy who shoots worse from all over the floor with a much worse A/TO ratio hes your guy.

I remember when Jae was chosen. There were other "names" being thrown around. But his choice was just so right! He excelled across the board.

Just watched the Tyler post-game press conference...re POY "I'm going after it again. That's all I've got to say."

Bring it on.
