I appear to be in the minority on Marcus Smart, leaving him off my vote entirely. He received first-team honors from coaches and media.— Kellis Robinett (@KellisRobinett) March 10, 2014
Oklahoma State guard Marcus Smart was one of few players to receive All-Big 12 First Team and All-Big 12 Defensive Team honors from the coaches on Sunday.
And Smart picked up more honors Monday, as The Associated Press voted him a First Team All-Big 12 selection as well. Well, at least most of the media.
Wichita Eagle and Kansas City Star writer Kellis Robinett admitted on Twitter that he left Smart off his ballot entirely when it came down to voting.
When asked why, he explains that, too.
@ErikHorneOK he missed 3 games, took himself out of a 4th with a technical and his team finished 8th. Thought others were more deserving.— Kellis Robinett (@KellisRobinett) March 10, 2014
Fair assessment. Thoughts?
