    Great for AB!

    I think Cory should have been higher than 3rd Team though...

    great for AB and the program. might have voted for Turgeon as COY if it were me. i don't like the guy much from his KU playing days, but put together a very nice year.

    Next years squad is starting to look very good imo. I wonder how this team will perform with the higher expectations that will be placed on them.

    With Cory averaging 19 ppg, he'd have likely made the 1st Team in probably every conference except the Big XII. We are so deep this year. Consider Anderson, Collins, Aldrich, James, Pullen, Brackins.... Just a load of great players.
