    Default Timme Named a Karl Malone Award Finalist

    As many here predicted...

    SPRINGFIELD, Mass.– Gonzaga's Drew Timme was named one of the five finalists for the 2021 Karl Malone Power Forward of the Year Award the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame announced Thursday.

    Gonzaga becomes the first program in the seven-year history of the Naismith Starting Five Awards to have four players named as finalists in the same season. Last season, three Zags were named finalists (Kispert- Erving, Tillie- Malone, Petrusev- Abdul-Jabbar), UCLA had three in 2016-17, and Duke had three in 2014-15.

    The five finalists for the 2021 Karl Malone Award are Drew Timme (Gonzaga), Trayce Jackson-Davis (Indiana), Justin Champagnie (Pittsburg), Sandro Mamukelashvili (Seton Hall) and Jeremiah Robinson-Earl (Villanova).

    He stands a good chance of winning this outright.

    IMO, Drew Manchu delivers better than The Mailman.

    I will state the same thing as i did yesterday to the Kispert thread.

    If we win it all this year, this team has to go down as one of the best CBB teams in NCAA history-- undefeated, national champs and think about this:

    FOUR players who are considered top 5 in all of CBB at their positions: Suggs, Ayayi, Kispert and Timme all finalists for their position as nations best. That is truly remarkable and i will ask the question again: has this EVER happened in all of CBB history? I find it hard to believe it has.

    Probably a good chance Timme and Kispert both win.

    Agree there. And Drew has so many more facial hair variations going on as well as the gestures to go with them. Entertaining kid.

    Kid's earned it. For a guy that done the majority of "underneath" dirty work, he deserves it. PLUS, he's really funny and a fun guy!
