Who else is better qualified to hand out some college basketball hardware than the fans who watch the games on a regular basis?
The 2nd Annual CCR Mid-Major Player of the Year Fan Vote got under way on February 29th, and the votes started to roll in right from the outset. Schools got behind their talented players, trying to propel their players to the top of the contest.
Some schools emerged as early front-runners, while others picked up steam as the week moved onwards. In total, a combined 15,787 votes were cast in the first round through the online polls and Twitter.
Below, you can see who moved on, and the percentage of votes they received in each of their respective match-ups.
