The same argument follows in college basketball, where a little-known player outside of basketball geeks named Alec Peters is having a season to remember for an unranked Valparaiso team, keeping the Crusaders alive in the Horizon League without much support around him. Yet players like Villanova swingman Josh Hart, UCLA freshman phenom Lonzo Ball, Kansas’ Frank Mason III and even Duke sharpshooter Luke Kennard are consistently ranked above Peters in nearly every Wooden Award—the NCAA’s National Player of the Year award—projection.
This is the main reason Kennard will probably receive more votes for the Wooden Award than Peters, who is averaging nearly four points and five rebounds more than Kennard this season. In addition to shooting a much higher percentage and taking on other well-known teams, Kennard plays for one of the sport’s biggest brands.

That’s the unfortunate reality of college basketball awards, and why fans should try to watch a few lesser-known players when they’re not gawking at Westbrook’s latest triple-double.
