Marshon Brooks figures to present an interesting test case for the Big East coaches when they vote for the conference Player of the Year.
The 6-foot-5 senior wing from Providence leads the league in scoring in Big East games at 27.4 points per game and poured in a Big East-record 52 points in Wednesday’s 94-93 loss to Notre Dame.
Yet because the Friars (14-14) are just 3-12 in the Big East, Brooks may not get enough votes.
“Marshon Brooks probably is having the best year,” Louisville coach Rick Pitino said Thursday on the conference call. “He’s an outstanding player. He’s had the best year, but they’re not winning.”
