Bilas' AA team also included Stephen Curry, James Harden (despite last night lol), Blake Griffen, and Luke Harangody. Yes, you read that right. Tyler "get every call" Hansbrough did NOT make the list.
Honestly not sure if the bigger surprise here is that Bilas/ESPN actually gave a Bruin his due, or that they (rightfully) left off the "face" of college basketball. Although arguable, Curry has passed Hansbrough as the most known player in the country - and rightfully so.
Bilas says straight up that DC is "the best, most efficient PG in the nation," and that he "plays at the highest level on both ends of the court." Both statements that we've echoed here many times this year. DC's playing the best ball of his career right now and it's awesome that he's getting recognized for it - especially because he doesn't have the gaudy point/assist numbers that others may have. His contributions go beyond the box score and people are starting to realize that.
I really am not a fan of Bilas but I like what he's done with this team. It's all about production, not about national publicity and face time. Honestly I can't argue with any of the selections. Well earned praise for DC.
(Hansbrough did make the 2nd team)
