This was obvious, wasn’t it?

I mean, Dougie McBuckets has only been at the top of our National Player of the Year Power Rankings for months, and we’ve only been calling him a shoe-in for the National Player of the Year award since late-January.

The bottom-line is this: McDermott put up enormous numbers this season (26.5 ppg, 7.2 rpg, 52.2% FG, 44.7% 3PT), capping off a once-in-a-generation career with the most memorable individual performance of the season when he scored a career-high 45 points, including his 3,000th point, on Senior Night in front of a record-setting crowd in Omaha.

He’s the centerpiece of the nation’s most explosive offense, the reason that a team one-year removed from the Missouri Valley Conference not only is a legitimate Final Four threat, but that they’re even competing in the Big East to begin with.

McDermott only has a handful of games left at the collegiate level. I hope you all get at least one more chance to watch him play.
