Patrick Holloway is the Washington Post's All-Met Player of the Year

The Washington Post officially released their Winter All-Met teams today, we already knew recruit Patrick Holloway was on the first team but turns out he was also named Player of the Year. A great honor for Holloway as he becomes the first ever George Mason recruit to earn this award.

Here is the write-up the post had on him:
"George Mason recruit saved his biggest performances for the season’s biggest games, leading the No. 1 Panthers to a 35-3 record, their first Washington Catholic Athletic Conference championship, the City Title and a Virginia private schools championship. Made a buzzer-beating three-point shot to beat No. 1 DeMatha during the regular season and made the game-winning basket in the teams’ rematch in the WCAC championship game. One of the region’s best pure scorers, the 6-1 guard averaged 13.2 points and shot 35 percent from three-point range."

One player of the year out (Pearson), one player of the year in (Holloway).  Can't wait to see Holloway play next year!

I didn't realize NBA MVP candidate Durant was from the Washington area.

 Rudy Gay, Delonte West, & Linas Kleiza were 3 other All met POY since 2000 who made the NBA.

Not to get my hopes up too high, but "be still my heart!"

GMU NEEDS TO GET OUT THE CAA BEFORE THE EXIT FEE GOES UP TO 1 MIllion.   GSU is leaving so now the CAA either needs to lure CoC and maybe Butler to the conference, or we need to just leave and forget about the check cuz it wont be worth it if we have to pay that off.

 Kind of a creepy thing to say man.

 So you're not the least bit excited about Mason getting a POY with the track record of the previous winners??

Pearson will be missed, indeed.  One question...and maybe Ryan (GMU Hoops) can answer...why is Pearson not at the Portsmouth Invitational?  Hard to believe he was not invited.  If he wasn't invited, that is an injustice.  Great exposure at the PI.

Has patrick actually signed yet?  I mean with getting this award he could probably jump ship for another higher quality acc or sec school.

I have seen a few concerts at the patriot center that all
project live footage to a screen. I think this would be a great idea. Low
weight so the roof could support it. And  a projector would cost significantly less than
a large TV. Any thoughts?

It's a showcase for NBA scouts. Pearson isn't an NBA prospect. Guys get invited who the scouts think have NBA potential. It is not an all-star tournament or anything like that.

I don't think we have had any players at Portsmouth since the '06 Final Four seniors of Butler, Skinn, and Lewis. Obviously they played well that year, but I read somewhere they only got late invites because Coach L pulled some strings.

Hi Ryan...I beg to differ with you.  I have been there at the PI, followed it, spoke with players, etc.  There are numerous scouts from overseas teams...all over the place.  This is not the Orlando Pre Draft tryouts.  Very few PI players actually get to the NBA.  However, how can you not pick the CAA Player of the Year?  Have you checked the PI rosters this year?...NBA prospects...very few.  It is all about exposure.  A sham Pearson was not invited.  I surely know it is not an all star is guys fighting for careers...have you been there?  It is awesome.

In fact...adding to my comment...usually those who are secure in being drafted DO NOT attend the PI.  Pearson should be there.

And because of the Final Four.  I think we all knew they had no NBA career.  They played well, but Jai got burned by Steve Novak on 3's. Jai had a great start and finished...well, not as good.  Tough to ask Jai to cover a 6"9" three pointer shooter who is now an integral part of the Knicks.

I referenced this a few months ago when discussing lower weight alternatives to allow video; specifically I referenced the old technology that was used at the old Capital Center, starting in 1973 or 1974. The "Tel-Screen" as it was called then utilized a Video Projection was in essence a" big movie projector" which projected a image onto a large white screen. The system however, required a very dark arena to allow for a sharp image, including the ulilization of black-out curtains at each entrance portal to limit entry of unwanted light.
