Came across this "article" about Garza and his upcoming NBA go/no-go decision. I'm not saying there couldn't have been a debate between Garza/Toppin for POY. But the idea that Toppin only won because Garza could win in 2021 is one of the craziest things I've seen in a while. https://www.blackheartgoldpants.com...ouldnt-return-to-iowa-hawkeyes-nba-draft-bhgp Thus, the conventional wisdom was that Garza would be back for a senior season. Even before season was over, we saw that line of thinking start to take shape. It clearly played a role in Garza not being named the Naismith Player of the Year. Despite being clearly better in every measurable way last season, Luka Garza came in second to Dayton’s Obi Toppin. Toppin was a dynamic player in his own right who had a great year on a very good team. But he was destined for the NBA following the end of the year while Garza was not. So why not give the award to Toppin when you could surely give it to Garza in 2021?
