just a quick post â€¦ currently the leading scorer, rebounder, shot blocker, and assists man in NCAA Division One basketball are not black phenoms. "weird," huh? as of this posting: nation's leading scorer - Doug McDermott - 26.5 points-per-game (White) nation's leading rebounder - Killian Larson - 11.6 rebounds-per-game (White) nation's leading passer - Jason Brickman - 10.0 assists-per-game (Filipino) nation's leading shot blocker - Jordan Bachynski - 4.2 blocks-per-game (White) unless something crazy happens, Doug McDermott appears to be the runaway choice for National Player of the Year. additionally, a couple of names i've not seen mentioned much (or at all) on the boards â€¦ Memphis freshman forward Austin Nichols is likely going to be the American Athletic Conference Freshman of the Year. Nichols was just named as the Conference freshman of the week for the third-straight week, as well. Nichols, one of the VERY rare White athletes to play (and start!) for Memphis over the years, has personal-bests of 7 blocked shots, 12 rebounds, and 20 points this year. he has scored in double figures 6 straight games. remember the name Evan Bradds. a 6-foot-6 Belmont freshman, Bradds is already showing signs of becoming an impact player for the Bruins. the versatile guard/forward had his first career double-double (14 points and 10 rebounds) in Belmont's loss to Eastern Kentucky in their Ohio Valley Conference tourney championship game.
