Scott Reid of the Orange County Register and Scott Mansch of the Great Falls Tribune Didn't Vote Anthony Davis 1st Team All-American

The Associated Press All-American basketball teams were revealed today, and even though the silly AP doesn’t make up a traditional team of two guards, two forwards and a center, it’s difficult to find any major flaws with these selections:

Thomas Robinson, Kansas
Jared Sullinger, Ohio State
Draymond Green, Michigan State
Anthony Davis, Kentucky
Doug McDermott, Creighton

McDermott was terrific for the Blue Jays (23 ppg), but I wouldn’t have had any beef if Isaiah Canaan of Murray State or Kendall Marshall of UNC had made the 1st team over him.

The real story here is that Anthony Davis – perhaps the best freshman big-man in college basketball since Patrick Ewing – was not a unanimous 1st team pick. Two writers left him off the first team.

That’s as bad as it gets, and thanks to Jeff Goodman, we know who the writers are: Scott Reid of the OC Register and Scott Mansch of the Great Falls Tribune. What an embarrassment, fellas. The Kentucky fans – some of the most aggressive on the web – are going to make your lives hell for a couple days.
