Betting Opens on NCAA Most Outstanding Player Award

19 March 2003

ST. JOHN'S, Antigua – (Press Release) -- Kentucky Wildcats guard Keith Bogans is the favorite to take home the coveted 'Most Outstanding Player Award' according to

Bogans, the current SEC player of the year, is 5/2 to take the title -- edging out Texas Longhorn point guard T. J. Ford who is 3/1 to beef up his trophy cabinet. T. J. Ford is both the current and Sporting News NCAA Player of the Year.

The Most Outstanding Player Award is given to the athlete who delivers the most exceptional performance throughout the NCAA March Madness Tournament. Traditionally, the winner has always been a player in the Final Four.

Other hot tips from internet bookmakers include Sooners superstar Hollis Price (5/1) and Arizona senior point guard Jason Gardner (6/1).

"Bogans and his team have looked hot all season which is why we are making him the favorite to win the Most Outstanding Player Award," said Chief Bet Manager Michael Maerz.

"Ford may be winning a handful of Player of the Year awards but we're not sure if Texas has got what it takes to make it to the Final Four," he said.

"If you can pick the Final Four teams, then it becomes a question of selecting the player who's put in the best performance. If there's one thing we know for certain at, it's that the March Madness tournament always throws up a handful of surprises," he added.
