Herb has done a great job this year, so I guess he'd get my vote. ASU in general has had been a surprise in Football and Basketball....

POY goes to Beasley...and as Bilas says, it ain't close

He's the leading scorer and rebounder for the #1 team in the country, and has carried that team after an lengthy injury to its most talented player. More importantly, the voters won't want to give the award to a one-and-done freshman two years in a row.
