JaJuan Johnson continues to rack in the awards, this time with the Pete Newell Big Man Award. Congrats JJ!
It is refreshing to see that even though our team didn't accomplish its ultimate goals, our players are still being rewarded for their hard work. We will miss JJ and Etwaun next year, but I still believe there will be no shortage of award recognition next spring however (Robbie - All American, Lew Jack and Ryne Smith - various). Replacing JJ as a big man will take all 3 of the Hansen bros, however I believe they will be able to get it done by consensus with one of them really stepping up and taking the main role.
