With the season he's had, it's hard to imagine Omar didn't at least get a Co-POY. Matt's had a very good year and should be there too. Not sure how this should have been managed. ...maybe as it was.
Good players on the WCC all star team. Even though the league is weak compared to the BCS type schools.....every year when the AP puts this list out, the conglomerate of ALL WCC team could compete with anybody...IMHO.

Congrats to the Mattster and Elias.

The opposing coaches watched a senior glue together a squad of inexperienced members and do things at the national level that they can only wildly dream about. Then he took them into league and convincingly beat the top competition that was projected to be their equals. In the process, he suffered a concussion and an assortment of dings. The only league losses were competitive, and USF's win was a fluke. Some of the scheduling stretches were very imposing, and the team played the best basketball of the entire season through them. A bravo effort, appreciated by the coaches who understood what a task it was.

Samhan took a young team to a 2nd place in league, featuring 3 losses in the biggest 4 games. The numbers just weren't as impressive as the other guy's story.

Agreed, if it was just stats it would be Omar but it's not just stats. Matt has been everything his team has needed him to be.

Go!! Zags!!!
