I thought Richland's Richard Forshee should have made the all-tournament team. He was a game changer.

Just my opinion on him. What are your thoughts?

Usually if their team is eliminated early, they don't get a whole lot of consideration from voters. But his 28-point game against Malden was impressive.

It would be nice if consideration was given to more than scoring. There were many players this year and years past who contribute defensively with steals, blocked shots, rebounds, ect. I don't want to take anything from those that made the all tournament team, they deserve it. It was an exciting tournament!

I think for the most part voters keep those tangibles in mind, Sports Fan. Primer for example on Kennett was on and off offensively through the four games but was a difference-maker defensively every night. Ruch on Bloomfield didn't put up big numbers offensively but was very consistent and likely got some added votes for his game-winner in the first round upset of Malden.

Doesn't make sense penalizing the individual player when they started against the number one ranked team. Richard Forshee also had rebounds and blocks. Just my opinion but seems like he was penalized because his team was ranked 16th.

Sounds like a bit of a controversy has developed regarding the all-tournament team. I'm sure glad I don't have to vote on this!

The fact is there are more teams in the tournament than players on the all-tournament team. There will always be good, deserving players left off. That's life. It's not always fair. Nobody is being "penalized." There just isn't room for every good player, and team success does make a difference. Again, that's reality. It is what it is. We hear this all the time in sports when the NCAA Tournament rolls around and a team doesn't get an at-large bid (remember Missouri State with an RPI of 21?). There are always complaints about who didn't make the MLB all-star team. It's just the way it is. Players and teams worthy of recognition are always left out. But, to put somebody else on you've got to take another off. Can't be fair to both.
