    I voted for RJ. When FSU threatened to open a big lead in the second half, RJ put the team on his back and kept us in the game. His consistent offense put us in a position to win.

    Cam

    Game winner, nuff said.

    If we're being 100% dispassionate and mathematical, Cam's last minute is neutral... the shot cancels out the turnover and foul.

    But, that's not how this thing works... Cam gets it because of the history of his season so far and what his game today could mean going forward.

    Barrett carried the team. Duke would have lost without him. But Reddish had a great game as well, and he hit *the* shot. Reddish gets my vote.

    Had to go with RJ. Cam was definitely the hero, and I was really happy to see him do so well today. But RJ carried the heavy load throughout the game. And I felt like it was the combination of RJ's performance throughout the game, and the well planned and executed play - that allowed Cam to be standing there with a wide open shot at the end. So glad that he sank it.

    And like everyone else, I really love this team.

    I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!
    Barrett played a man's game for 40 minutes. Reddish made some big shots, but Barrett made it possible for Duke to be in the position to win.

    Cam also gets it - because that foul was a BS call. Cam didn't foul him. He merely got called for the foul. Awful awful call.

    I was gonna vote Cam even before the game winner so that shot makes it even easier.

    Lol I think it's still the only unanimous decision we've ever had. He carried us that entire game ala RJ today plus the Cam game winner. In fact his was a true buzzer beater as underdogs and against those guys while in the dump with one of the best comebacks I've ever seen (Thanks Zeller!). Truly a masterpiece.

    Cam had an awesome game, but let's not forget he missed several free throws..Make a couple and we don't need the heroics. But still I am pleased to see him do so well.

    To me RJ was the most valuable and tough player with Cam also doing a great job.

    Curious as to the reasoning for the Zion vote.

    That turnover wasn't on Cam, it was a bad pass from Tre.

    I think that many of us voted in the afterglow of "the shot". While Cam was simply fantastic for much of the game, it was RJ that shouldered most of the attack load that kept us close. That being said, I cannot fault those that voted for Cam, I almost did myself. But this is Man Of The Match, not of The Shot. But again, it would be easy to vote for either one, it was that close..Just glad when we needed both kids to step up when Zion went down, and they did..

    Tough call. Cam and RJ both deserve it but having one vote I voted for RJ. He carried the team on offense to keep the game close in the second half. His 32 were the most points scored by a freshman on the road under Coach K.

    I voted for Reddish. A confident Cam makes us that much more potent offensively; especially in the half court if opponents choose to clog the lane.

    I didn't like the call when I first saw it, but when I looked at the replay, it definitely looked like Cam leaned into him. Had he stayed vertical, I don't think it would (or should) have been a foul.

    Here's the thing...this topic is subjective as much or more than objective. MOTM can mean any number of things. Does it mean MVP for the game? Does it mean who was 'the story' of the game? Or something else? Was Cam the overall MVP of the game? No, RJ was, and thus a vote for him is totally logical. Was Cam the story of the game? No doubt about it, for two huge reasons - so that vote is great too.

    It depends on the voter individually, which is great to me. I often vote differently in these polls, with well over 100 voters, and 35 or so chances to vote, than I would if I were the lone vote, casting it one time per season.

    Per my conversation with Carlos yesterday, Javin got as many votes here as he got rebounds.
    Might have a stiff neck from watching all those lobs sail over his head. Time for the Icy Patch!
