The Boubacar 3/13/2008 (Awards Edition)--The Mid-Majority

Horizon League (POY: Mike Green, Butler; COY: Waters, Cle. St./Brownell, Wright State)

Mid-Majority Horizon Player of the Year: Mike Green, Butler. Green labored in fellow guard A.J. Graves' shadow during the Sweet 16 run last season, but he moved from subhead to headline in 2007-08. The 6-1 senior grabbed Butler's triple crown, leading the team in points (14.9), rebounds (6.6) and assists (5.1). Then, it was his 24 points and 13 rebounds that iced the tourney title in a 70-55 win over Cleveland State.

Mid-Majority Horizon Coach of the Year: Brad Stevens, Butler. When Todd Lickliter left for Iowa last summer, it was expected that Butler would take a step back, not forward. This year's Bulldogs did a lot of things the 2006-07 squad didn't, like win both Horizon titles. He also played the kids a lot, ensuring that when Green leaves, he won't be left with green players.
