    ARLINGTON, Va. (October 18, 2011) - The ODU Monarchs who won back-to-back Colonial Athletic Association titles with two starters returning have been picked to finish fourth for the 2011-12 season according to a vote of league's coaches, media relations directors and media members. Monarch senior Kent Bazemore was selected pre-season Player of the Year. The results were announced during Tuesday's CAA Basketball Media day at Champps-Pentagon Row in Arlington, VA.

    what is the point of this?

    of course kent bazemore is a fantastic player. everyone knows that. just because people didn't think it was "crystal clear" and he was a lock preseason POY doesn't mean people should eat their words.

    your team got a preaseaon award. congrats?

    Congrats. Here's to hoping the league's PPOY actually plays this year.

    He was a lock for Preseason POY. Only homers like Litos would vote otherwise. This vote was based on past accomplishments--to which Bazemore has no rival.

    I refuse to speculate on whether or not Bazemore will have the type of season to warrant end of the year honors. I will leave that to those trying to turn this into a pissing contest. Carry on, Tom.

    Excellent point!

    And 4th place is very optimistic in my mind. But it is a relatively vacant territory. My mind, that is.

    Thank you, DM. Unlike your fellow fan who found the need to start this thread, I'm glad you got my point. I believe this is a precedent that two of the league's top preseason picks will miss significant time in Bazemore and Fouch. They are certainly two of the top 10 players in the league, but nobody knows how they will respond to their injuries if they return. This is a great honor for Kent, but I'm sure he would trade it in a second to be healthy for the start of the season.

    I was wondering when a thread like this was going to pop up after reading the Bazemore pick.

    Now I will wonder no more.

    I'm just disappointed that we lost our preseason championship.

    Normally ODU is a lock to win that!

    Not true. We have a very successful football program, the #1 Field Hockey team in the Nation, and the #10 Men's Soccer team in the Nation. This is actually the least important story ODU has had in the past few months. It's nice to have a well-rounded athletic program. Putting all your eggs in one basket (pun intended) as Mason does with their floundering MBB program would be terrible. But hey, at least you still have a tranny Prom Queen honored in the middle of a women's lacrosse game to garner national acclaim. Haha

    Still, yay for Bazemore. He played great last year, and have no beef with the choice. Also good for the ODU fan who threw the bottle at him after the Butler game, you have to wonder what disappointment does to people like him.

    That bottle is green and yellow. Must have been a Mason fan.

    This thread isn't about recognizing our players. It's about forcing you and your idiot cronies to eat crow. Maybe next time when I tell you something, you'll put aside your own ridiculous opinion and choose to be on the side that is correct.

    Moses should have brought down an 11th Commandment: You shall not question anything ODU fans say about ODU or you will be harassed and called a homer.
