With the break in between the Round of 32 and the Sweet 16, we felt that it was the best time to hand out the 2nd Annual College Court Report Season Awards. We based our decisions solely on the performances of the individuals in the regular season, and did not factor in their respective playoff performances when we made our decisions.
We looked at the traditional awards, like Coach of the Year, Freshman of the Year, and Player of the Year. However, we went off the beaten path a bit with some new awards for the 2014-15 season. We used the results from the CCR Mid-Major Player of the Year and Mid-Major Freshman of the Year contests to hand out fan voted awards. We also looked at some of the top Canadians from the 2014-15 season, and awarded five freshmen for their strong seasons that you may not have heard much about.
This is the second year that we have done these awards, and the goals are still the same. We use these awards to raise awareness on some of the nation’s best players, and bring awareness to some mid-major players who may get snubbed from award discussions on a larger scale. If any player, or school, would like a copy of a certificate to commemorate a specified award, send us a message either on Facebook or Twitter and we will respond as quickly as possible.
