CollegeInsider.com has released its 2009-10 awards and Mount point guard Jeremy Goode was name the NEC MVP by the website.
Goode became the Mount's all-time assist leader during the season leading the Mount to a 16-15 record. He led the team in scoring - and moved into the Top 10 on the all-time list in Mount history.
Mt. St. Mary's participated in the inaugural Collegeinsider.com Postseason Basketball Tournament a year ago. This year's field will be announced on Sunday evening. Former Mount coach and College Basketball Hall of Famer Jim Phelan is part of the selection committee. I don't know if the Mount is a prospect for the tournament or not this year. One person I checked with earlier this week, said no. However, I would think the Quinnipiac loss last night would help the Mount as it locks up an NIT spot for them. Therefore, if the CollegeInsider wants a team from the NEC - the Mount would seem to be the next most logical.
If I know anything more, you'll know it here. There is still a chance that the Mount might be in the postseason. But its a small chance. Let's just say that there would be a lot of surprised people on Sunday night if that happened.
Justin Rutty of Quinnipiac was named the conference Player of the Year, while Mike Rice won the Coach of the Year award.
Other stuff I found out today....The MTE does still involve Murray State. The Mount will visit Murray - along with Cincy and Dayton - and gets a home game with Jackson State.
Also, I'm not going to the Legends Classic. The marquee home game is expected to be the Saturday after Thanksgiving. American and Navy will also come to the ARCC.
Penn State returns to the schedule, and there are still at least one money game to fill. Recent opponents Oklahoma and Virginia Tech - as well as Maryland could fill it.
