Andy Katz, who seems to be sucking slightly less these days, gives Jodie Meeks a little pub in his Weekly Watch column. Jodie makes the All-This Week team, but failed to receive top prize, probably due to the ESPN bias against the Cats. At least that’s what I’m going with. Anyway, it’s nice to see our boy Jodie getting some recognition from the national media on what was a great day. The Cards make the list, too, so look for them under “Team of the Week” in the awards. They’re in there for helping Minnesota bring home honors as the week’s best team, which was very gracious of the Cards, being a Final Four contender and all. Excuse me while I chuckle at the notion of Louisville being anywhere near the Final Four without a ticket this season. I invite you to do the same.
Meeks has also been named “Player of the Week” in the SEC. He leads the SEC with 24.1 points per game and something tells me this won’t be the last time he receives these honors.
