  1. I think this on of the true acknolegement list that’s got it right for last season. I don’t know how you omit Jasmine Thomas from those other National list. Its crazy! If you look at it she has done the most for her team, and taking them the furthest without having any major stars on her team like these other player’s team does! Everybody in the country know she was rob of the ACC regular season MVP! How can you not give this kid that award when she let her team to the ACC regular season champs, and the ACC Tournament Championship! Not only that, this kid led her team in scoring, assists, mins. played and steals. Come on! You guys that make all the decision and choose these players for these post season award really have to do a better job of choosing the players that really deserve them, and not this political bull that goes on all the time!!!
