My personal opinion is that Monroe should have been first team All-American. D3Hoops.com does great work and I'm not throwing any ill-will here, just stating my personal opinion.

I think we have been desensitized to Mr. Monroe's huge numbers because he has been doing this for so long. He led his team to a 25-4 record in a fairly competitive conference and the Cavs were able to host the first weekend of the NCAA tourney, a privilege for only 16 of the best teams. He averaged 21.4 points and 14.7 rebounds, which was good enough for second in the country. Lets throw in the fact that he shot almost 51% from the field, averaged 3.2 assists per game and had an ast:to f 1.6, which is pretty solid for a forward who had the ball in his hands as much as Monroe did. Throw in 2 blocks and a steal a game to boot and you have an all-around game dominator. I know his FT percentage was down around 60%, but the guy isn't perfect.  ;D

I know everyone is familiar with his numbers, so thats not any news here. But in terms of fitting on a team, he is a quintessential player any coach would want to have, whether he is playing the point or center he would make a team better due to his unique skill set, size and athleticism.

I personally would have had him on my First team, but curious to why you choose the other players over him, if you are allowed to divulge that information! :)

Some of it, for me anyway, is honestly a testament to what he's been able to do. He got recruited as a 6'1" guard and turned into a 6'6" guard playing center.  He's a tremendous rebounded and a good athlete, but his defense is below average and he's not performed well when he actually has to play against true post players.  If he could've been more like Aaron Walton-Moss was, a true small forward, it might've helped him.  Cabrini just had to do things with him, because of personnel, that weren't necessarily in his best interests.  Of course, basketball is a team game and he went along (and got the 5th most rebounds ever in the process).

In my book he's behind Walters because they're similar players and Walters has a more physical game.  Monroe was sick in the all-star game, but you could see the difference between the two on the court.  In January, I was considering Jaqhawn Walters for POY - he and his team fizzled out a bit, but he's a really strong contender.

I can see real pros and cons to having both Sanders and Monroe on your team.  It was close between all those guys on the first three teams and I don't think anyone could really argue too much with any order you'd put the six big guys.

That is a pretty impressive roster even without Trevor.

It's not really a team so much as a list of names.

If you could only pick five with some semblance of a starting lineup, whom would pick?

My five would be Cory Lemons, Aaron Walton-Moss, Willie Chandler, Tyheim Monroe and Badou Gaye.

I only saw the first 16 years worth, but Will Chandler, Badou Gaye, Damien Hunter, Rahim Washington, and Bill Carr and Antoine Harden make my short list from that ear.

Yeah. Similarly I only saw the guys who played after 2004, except for Chandler. When I was living in Upstate NY, I drove four hours to watch him play at a holiday tournament in Williams.
