Personally I think it should go to Coach K or the Butler coach. Who do you think deserved it?

And also, Evan Turner won AP Player of the Year. Do you agree?

You can make a case for Coach K or Brad Stevens (Butler coach), but Jim Boeheim deserves it as much as anyone. Syracuse wasnt ranked to start the season, but they eventually climbed up to #1.

Evan Turner would get my vote for AP Player of the Year. He has been consistent all season, and has far less talent around him compared to John Wall and Wesley Johnson.

He's not just any coach, Jim Boeheim is a legend. After losing 2 top scorers from last season Flynn and Devendorf he still managed his team to a great season. And if you knew anything about college basketball, the Big East is one of the toughest conferences to play in.

I thought he would have a chance to make it, he's probably gonna have to try again in Summer League.

i thought he was a long shot. but still a sure late 2nd round draft pick. guess scouts didn't think that highly of him. yep, sounds like another summer league try out next summer for some team.

I know he is a great coach, but I think Brad Stevens should have one.

Syracuse was predicted to be 6th in the Big East at the beginning of the season, and was unranked to begin the season. They dominated all season minus Louisville (Cause we always lose to Louisville), were #1 in the Big East and #1 in the overall rankings at one point. They lost their 3 best players and brought in almost a whole new starting lineup.
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.
