College Basketball Player of the Year Poll

Every fall, it seems like there are about 3,794 weekly polls handicapping the Heisman Trophy race. But I never was able to find one for college basketball’s prestigious postseason awards like the Wooden or Naismith.


Until now.


My buddy Mike Rothstein, who covers Notre Dame football and basketball for the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette, came up with the idea. He’s soliciting informal ballots from members of the media who vote for postseason player of the year awards for a bi-weekly poll.


For the results of his first poll, click here. Some pretty interesting results. And it’ll be cool to see how accurate the poll is come the end of the season.
