Notice how none of the guys who were commonly believed to be POY candidates in pre-season polls haven't actually won POWs yet (Rosen, Wroblewski ... and of course Casey was injured). Instead it's Wright and Maddox repeating.

Yeah, to be fair, I think most people projected that if Keith Wright stayed healthy, he was definitely POY material. Kareen Maddox was a bit more of an unknown, and has to be a pleasant surprise in Tigertown.

The problem was that during his first two years Wright was unable to stay healthy enough to log the 800 season minutes that POY's do. Why think he could do it this year?

Rosen and Eggleston proved their quality and durability at that level last year. They are actually playing like that again.

At this point, no matter what one reads or hears, one cannot avoid thinking that the effects of Kyle Casey's foot injury are lingering and will continue to do so.

But, to the point. More power to Keith Wright. With almost one-third of the season in the books, he's playing 28-30min/g and averaging 7R/16pts/2A/2Bl. Those are POY-type stats. Every game he plays at this level and stays healthy, he earns more of my respect.

There are, however, five Ivy bigs who are playing very close to this level. The one whose team takes the League may actually earn POY.

funny that every team except Cornell has gotten a ROW or POW, paving the way to an 8th place finish
