  1. Shawn Says:

    Congrats to Mason coach Jim Larranaga, and players Cam Long, Ryan Pearson, and Luke Hancock for their all-CAA honors. As a team, let’s bring home the CAA tourney title, too. GO MASON.

  2. P. Jackson Says:

    If Britt of W&M can slow down and let the game come to him, he’ll be first team All CAA before he graduates.

    It’s good to see the Monarchs represented well on the All Defensive team considering how well they play as a unit. They’ll be a tough out in the tournament.

  3. EShine Says:

    Congrats to all of the winners. CAA is as strong as its ever been, so the voters had some tough calls to make. That said…

    I feel sorry for anyone getting covered by Andre Cornelius this weekend.

  4. Pete (the ODU version) Says:

    I’m no fan of Cornelius but I suspect, like Finney, he deserves more recognition than he got.

    Over on MonarchNation, one of the smarter posters made an interesting observation: Whenever there is a loose ball on the floor, the Monarch players instinctively will try to bat the ball in the direction of either Finney or Bazemore. Why? Because their teammates know that Ben or Kent are the ones most likely to do what is necessary to get control of that ball.

    I suspect that Cornelius and Hancock play much the same role for GMU, and that every other team has one or two similar go-to pitbulls (Ed Nixon for VCU? Semenov for JMU? Givens for Drexel?). In a way, it’s shame that there couldn’t be a separate “Grittiest Player of the Year” award, although I suspect that might dilute the point of the “DPOY” award.

  6. Colonial X: 2011-12 Week 1 | UNCW Basketball Says:

    [...] The names that followed Jenkins shuffled order but appeared with regularity. Players played their way on (and off) the team, until we settled on a final Colonial X that resembled the official All-CAA first and second teams. [...]
