Your NCAA Larry Bird Player Of The Year Is Loyola Chicago's Cameron Krutwig

Well well well, would you look what we have here.

Another Loyola Rambler taking home the NCAA Men's Basketball Missouri Valley Conference Player Of The Year hardware. 

Another year, another Porter Moser recruit proving he's the best player in the land.*

Honestly, I'm the first to admit I was totally wrong on Big Cam. 4 years ago I thought this kid was 5 fouls and a guy not afraid to take a charge. But he's made leaps and bounds each of the last three seasons to establish himself as a dominant force on the defensive board side, and a reliable scorer on the other end. He's also one of, if not the best passing big man in the nation. 

And don't look now but the best lockdown defender in all the land was also rightfully honored.

This kid is everywhere at all times when he's on the floor. Has a non-stop motor and just keeps coming. And he plays pesky D without being dirty. 

I am so fucking fired up for this year's tournament and for Loyola to make another run.
