Interesting column (https://www.cdapress.com/zag_basketball/20190122/clarke_could_be_an_mvp__just_ask_kenpom)about how Clarke stacks up against the field (specifically Zion) for NPOY.



It shouldn’t surprise you that the Zags would have a POY candidate.

NO, HERE’S the surprise…

It’s Brandon Clarke.

Yep.

The following is part of an exchange between two terrific college hoops reporters, Brian Hamilton and Dana O’Neil of the Athletic ...

“It would be an extremely difficult call for me between Williamson and Clarke,” Hamilton said. “To be clear, everyone on your list merits consideration. I really thought going into this process that I’d land on someone other than Zion.

“And it basically turns out that my broad criteria for whittling down the player of the year list — best players on the best teams — fits Zion and Clarke.”

Without having access to the discussion between Brian Hamilton and Dana O’Neil, it appears that their list of top tier players in the Player of the Year group includes at least one player from Duke (Williamson - and I gotta assume Barrett is on it as well), two GU players (Clarke and Rui) and two Tennessee players (Schofield and Grant Williams). GU matches up pretty doggone well with the top two teams.
