How does a guy who just failed his team when it matters most for the second time in as many years get player of the year - it's great that he boosted his personal stats all year but what good does it do to go into the tournament as a #1 and get your butt kicked in the sweet 16 year after year - he never got Duke a championship and for the last two years when we need him most - he puts up his lowest point of the year when the Team needs him - enjoy the trophy but it's undeserved

JJ got the award because he outdid Adam Morrison. He had his own mixtape.

Peep it here.

Whoa, what has Morrison done?

Redick is obviously better than Morrison. You can't say Redick never did anything, because he was the leader of the Blue Devils. Things didn't go his way against LSU, but he was clearly the best player in college basketball.

Morrison's team was horrific, they were in one of the easiest brackets, almost lost games to Loyola Marrymount, San Diego State, and San Francisco. A legitamate force on the college basketball level wouldn't get a few lucky wins to take those games.

Redick played against much harder competition than Morrison's weak conference.

It's called the player of the year not the player of the tournament you idiot. JJ reddick was clearly the best player in one of the strongest conferences. Hell, I could score 28 a game against Morrinson's conference. What a joke!!!!

JJ Redick is better in every issue except the height differential. GO DUKE!
