1st team:
Kevin Love, UCLA
Tyler Hanbrough, UNC (unanimous)
Michael Beasley, Kansas State (unanimous)
Chris Douglas-Roberts, Memphis
DJ Augustin, Texas

2nd team:
Roy Hibbert, Georgetown
Luke Harangody, Notre Dame
DJ White, Indiana
Shan Foster, Vanderbilt
Stephen Curry, Davidson

3rd team:
Brook Lopez, Stanford

Surprised there wasn't much love for Kansas. Figured at least Brandon Rush would make it.

Hibbert second team huh? I've never understood his hype.

Hibbert second team huh? I've never understood his hype.

Me either really. I suppose being a legit 7'+ helps add to it. I just don't ever see him being better than he is right now. If you go through his game log he had only 5 games of 20+ points and also only 5 games of 10+ boards all season. Compare that to Hasheem Thabeet (a soph who's been playing basketball something like all of 6 years) who had 3 games of 20+ and 10 games of 10+. I think Hibbert's a really solid player, but I can't see him ever starting in the NBA.

I feel like this post needs to end with a plus sign, so +

These teams are...weird.

Interesting to see Rose on the third team and Augustin on the first team.

I believe he's the Big East Player of the Year.

I think it would be cool if the three teams had a round robin tourney.

I do not even now the formula for selection or who gets to vote but I say let them play and give the money to charity.
