The Mid-Major Awards (Little Too Early Predictions)--College Hoops Daily
National Mid-Major Player of the Year: Nigel Williams-Goss, Junior, Gonzaga, Guard

This award is toughest to decide. Picking between the leader of arguably the best team in basketball, Nigel-Williams Goss, and one of the most dominant players in the NCAA, Alec Peters, was tough. At the end of the day, I went with Nigel Williams-Goss as the National Mid-Major Player of the Year. Williams-Goss is averaging 15.7 points per game, 5.8 rebounds per game, 4.6 assists per game, shooting .505, around 2 steals per game, and a player efficiency rating of 26.58. Peters is averaging more points (23.1 ppg), more rebounds (10.7 rpg), fewer assists (2.2 apg), shooting at .463, .9 steals per game, and a player efficacy of 28.18. The stats give an edge to Peters. I say leading Gonzaga to an undefeated season against a much harder schedule gives Williams-Goss the edge. 21-5 is a good record for Valparaiso, but in a moderate conference, it is expected.
First Team:

– Nigel-Williams Goss, Junior, Gonzaga, Guard

– Marcus Keene, Junior, Central Michigan, Guard

– Alec Peters, Senior, Valparaiso, Forward

– James Thompson IV, Sophomore, Eastern Michigan, Forward

– Jock Landale, Junior, St. Mary’s, Center
