On the eve of the national championship game Kentucky's Anthony Davis has captured the Naismith Award, the fifth and final major Player of the Year awards in college basketball. According to, Davis has been given the honor, making him the first Kentucky player to be named Naismith POY. Davis also won the Wooden, AP, Oscar Robertson and Adolph Rupp awards, sweeping the trophies despite most people expecting him to split with Thomas Robinson. Of course, the two will get to match up for the ultimate prize tomorrow night, but we at least know that Davis dominated the Player of the Year race. Kansas didn't leave the day emptyhanded, though, as Bill Self was named the Naismith Coach of the Year over Coach Cal, Frank Haith and Jim Boeheim.
