Basketball Awards Banquet

The Falcons handed out their post-season basketball awards Sunday night. There's no MVP, but rather a lot of awards that emphasize the team aspect of Orr-Ball, and reward players for contributing to that.

A few comments:

  • Nice recognition of our three seniors, who have really contributed to our program from the beginning of their career to the end.
  • Note Marc Larson's near 4.0. Very impressive.
  • Also, note recognition of Scott Thomas, who I think is going to be a very good player.
  • I love how some of the awards are named after Falcon greats, which is a great way to let Falcon players and fans know about the terrific basketball players who have been in this program. And, I hope, it helps them feel a greater connection with the program and help encourage them to be involved.
