    Just a thought: Levance Fields from Pitt. Might not have had incredible scoring numbers (10.7 ppg, 40 percent shooter), but ran point for them very well in a tough conference, and had an absurd assist-turnover ratio of almost 4:1.

    That is a crazy number, isn't it? Only a third-team pick by the coaches in his own conferene, though.

    Maynor, Eric. VCU
    Belongs on there somewhere and I think those who are still objective - unlike me - would agree.

    I'm really surprised that the Big East coaches didn't pick him higher. They should know better. Not sure he belongs on an All-American team, but third-team in the Big East seems too low.

    As much as I like Maynor, I disagree. The guards on the three teams listed above are pretty dang good. It'd be hard to take one of them off in favor of Maynor.

    Point taken, though. I'm still trying to convince just one of my Mason buddies that he'll be on an NBA squad next year. Hard-headed haters.

    He's slow, he can't shoot and he doesn't defend well.

    He is not better than Dominic James, Johnny Flynn, A.J. Price.

    He has no business even sniffing an All-American team.

    Do they do it by position still?

    Solid question. If not, it definitely would make it easier to find a spot for your boy.

    FYI -- It's 'All-America', not 'All-American'.
