All-Sully Preason

First of all, I reserve the right to change my mind by the end of the season but I'm anticipating that I still really like the way these players play. What makes you an All-Sully: Good team play, great passing, a commitment to defense, some personality, someone who breaks the mold in someway, overachievers and underdogs. I watch the games and sometimes I just get attached to certain players.

Here's this year's opening list.


First-team
Stanley Robinson, UConn
Matt Howard, Butler
Jackson Emery, BYU
Devin Downey, South Carolina
Da'Sean Butler, West Virginia

Second-team
Patrick Christopher, Cal
Bill Clark, Duquesne
Dan Geriot, Richmond
Tyrone Lewis, Niagara
Juice Thompson, Northwestern

Just missed
Evan Turner, Ohio State
Reggie Jackson, Boston College
Soloman Alabi, Florida State


I'm going to wait on this but I'd be really surprised if Seton Hall's Herb Pope isn't All-Sully but the end of the season. He's a great story, overcoming a lot of problems in his hometown of Aliquippa, Pa., to make it to college. That's part of being All-Sully too.

Must reading: Pete Thamel of the NY Times (always does great work) writes about Jeremy Tyler, the kid from San Diego who dropped out of high school to play basketball in Israel. Things are not going well.
