Two Kentucky players make Fox Sports’ Midseason All-American List


We’re over halfway through with the season, which means the various national media outlets are releasing their midseason awards. Our pal Aaron Torres at Fox Sports released his this morning, and I think you’ll agree with two of his selections. Torres named Malik Monk and De’Aaron Fox Second Team Midseason All-Americans, noting that we probably don’t appreciate Fox as much as we should because his play has been somewhat overshadowed by Monk’s flashy numbers.

“Monk has been a star for the Wildcats and with a 21.4 point-per-game average, he could become the highest-scoring freshman ever to play under John Calipari (which sure is saying something),” Torres writes. “His 47-point performance against North Carolina might go down as the single-best performance anyone has had this entire college hoops season.”

    Fox is the best and most valuable player on our team and i haven’t seen a guard i would trade him for. Haven’t seen all them play.

      In the game with UCLA, Fox outplayed Ball in every aspect of the game….Leaf was our problem.
      Ball had 7 assists to 6 turnovers; Fox had 9 assists to 2 TO’s. And, Fox outscored Ball 20-14.

      Right now the only advantage I see for Ball is that he has a sturdier frame and will probably hold up better over the years than Fox. But in terms of play this year, Fox is clearly the better player.
