Hard not to vote for McGraw or Staley given how well their programs did this year compared to their version of normal, eh?

UNC assistant head coach deserves this award. 4 freshmen and 1 sophomore. 3 recruited by UConn. Sweet 16 and possibly beyond. UConn has two #1, one #2, and at least 4 in top 50. No coach deserves COY with that much talent.
