    I can't say that any of those picked don't deserve it. There are a lot of quality players and coaches in the 8th.
    Yes, Conley had better stats than at least 5 of the kids on the list and he is the best player on a top 5 team in the district. But any player that got snubbed can use that as motivation this week and in the coming weeks. Outcomes of basketball games cannot be voted on. That's what makes competition great.

    Iím glad I donít have to vote because Iím sure itís extremely difficult to judge who makes it and who doesnít. Stats can only take you so far in sorting it out. Each team is different and therefore players have different roles which makes it hard to compare stats. Somehow you have to judge the relative skill level to try and sort out who makes it and who doesnít. Iím sure it is never perfect, but itís not an easy thing to do. Hopefully, hype and politics donít influence voting and it really comes down to who the voters believe are the best players. I thought the list looked pretty reasonable,although I may have reordered a few players or included others myself.
