    "He's a little bit ball-dominant, he needs to have the ball in his hands, and he's not a good shooter." Ball-dominant Ö isn't that a nice way of calling someone a ball hog? Where is my Jay Bilas Thesaurus?

    Sorry Derrick (and SF Terps), but this one is easy. Trevon all the way!

    Two of my all-time favorites (Brown and Blueitt), but had to go with Trevon. I must be slipping in my old age because I totally forgot about Brown's NBA career.

    Brown actually had some solid numbers, especially in his final year. Kind of makes you wonder why some guys stick around and other don't.

    I thought long and hard about Mark "Three" Poynter, but I think Trevon should win this going away
    We've come a long way since my bench seat at the Fieldhouse!

    Wow, can't believe this is this close.

    Brown was really good (for 2 years at least) and obviously crazy talented as he played in NBA but as a college player Tre was on a completely different level.

    I would think that a St. X grad would vote for Richard Berning.

    Think I overlooked that because I knew I wanted to vote for Tre!

    That was my grandpa's best friend.

    Good vote '87!
