2010 NCAAB PSW Player of the Year

April 6th 2011 15:28
Connecticut Point Guard Kemba Walker

Jimmer Fredette doesn't deserve this award. Jimmer is the best offensive player in the country, but he is a subpar passer that does nothing else but score. He is also one of the worst defensive players out there, and he doesn't even try at that half of the game. Kemba is ultra-clutch, and nobody has anywhere near the number of tough, crucial shots that Walker has hit this year. He is easily the National Player of the Year.

Kemba Walker led his team to the championship and the Big East Tournament title. Yeah, the one where they won 5 straight days in a row with Walker hitting that incredible shot to beat Pitt at the buzzer. Unlike Fredette, Kemba is a solid passer that is decent at getting boards and plays tougher defense than you may think. He is fit defensively for the rugged Big East. While he isn't a great defensive player, Kemba Walker is a pretty good one.

If I was sitting there with the first pick in the NBA Draft next year, I would take Kemba Walker with that pick- granted I had an open spot at guard. Walker is an efficient scorer that gets to the rim and has a great mid-range shot. He excels off the ball and can create shots for himself at will. His toughness and athleticism allow him to take and make incredibly difficult shots that are remarkable at the college level.

Walker is probably the best ball-handler in the country, and his arsenal of moves to penetrate and attack the rim are easily the best in college basketball. He is a great leader, and his teammates feed off of him.You can try whatever scheme you want to, but you will never be able to truly stop Kemba Walker.

It was a joy to Walker play. Its hard to pick just one player. I like Williams at Arizona also.
