Geno Crandall has emerged as an early front-runner in the 2017-18 Player of the Year Fan Vote, and he will look to keep the title at the University of North Dakota for a third year in a row.

SARNIA, Ont. — It’s time for conference tournaments across the country, and the 2018 NCAA Tournament field is slowly taking shape.

At the end of the day on Sunday, five teams have already secured their spots in the field of 68. The Murray State Racers, Lipscomb Bisons, Michigan Wolverines, Loyola (IL) Ramblers, and Radford Highlanders have all secured themselves a spot in the Big Dance. Over the next seven days, the rest of the automatic bids will be secured.

With the season in the home stretch before March Madness, it also signals award season. Conferences have handed out their annual awards, and the race for the national awards heated up down the stretch.

The end of the season also signaled the start of the College Court Report Player of the Year Fan Vote. For the second year in a row, we selected 96 of the best players from outside of the power conferences and put them into a bracket-style field to select our Player of the Year. Fans vote for their favourites each week until there is just one left standing.

Over the past seven days, over 9,800 votes were cast in the First Round for 64 of the nation’s top players. Thirty-two players advanced to the Round of 64, and will each square off with a player who received a First Round Bye in the field.

Here are some of the highlights from Round One: Continue reading 2017-18 College Court Report Player of the Year Fan Vote: First Round Results
