How is she not on the first team?

03-29-2011, 12:11 PM
She is first team in our book!

I'm actually quite surprised and dissapointed that she is not on the first team.:argh:

My thoughts exactly.

CV averages more assists per game than the two PG's that have more votes than her (Pohlen and Robinson) combined. Scores more points and has more steals than either of them.

They're all in the same ballpark as far as rebounds go (though Pohlan has fewer than the other two), as far as 3P% goes, CV's in between the two of them (Robinson averages less than 1 attempt per game), but has a higher overall FG% than either. Both shoot at somewhat higher accuracy from the FT line, but 83% still isn't too shabby.

Stanford's still playing, but OK was knocked out in the round of 32.

Oh yeah, CV also had the most assists ever in a single season, and was the first player in Division 1 history to notch 2000 points and 1000 assists, and led the first 11-seed ever that made the Elite 8.

I think Courtney's body of work and stats this season speak for themselves and I think she should have been first team as well, but I don't think it helps that they vote before the tournament.

Absolutely ridiculous. She's First Team and its really not even close.

03-29-2011, 01:15 PM
Good grief, she's clearly better than Pohlen, and its not even close. Also, the fact that she's behind Robinson is a joke.

U Zig, I Zag

I am shocked as #### that she wasn't first team. Totally shocked. I *guess* you could throw the level of competition knock on her - but only slightly.

Heck, in a beatdown delivered by (my guess) the soon to be Nat champs she was the best player on the court.

We still love you most, Courtney!!!!!!

Agreed, she is better than Pohlen all season and last night.

Congrats on the honor, for sure... But Courtney belongs on 1st-team.
