Dartmouth guys howled for months after Williams was passed over for first team All Ivy and POY in 2015.

Guess what happened the following year? A Dartmouth guy got POY.

I'm neither a Dartmouth fan nor a Keggie, whatever that is. That a plurality or majority of some cohort voted a certain way makes it official, not necessarily right, wise or appropriate. Recall last fall's election.

Although there has always been some tension in all sports re what "MVP" means or should mean, the best player? a very good player who although not the best player in the sport or league nonetheless made a crucially important contribution to a championship season?, all star team choices are universally made on the basis of the best players regardless of team. That's why this year's exclusion of EB from the first team doesn't make sense.
