Two years under Dunleavy have produced two Most Improved Player awards. That should be a selling point to recruits.

Congrats to Melvin (assuming it's true... and I'd think it should be). And definitely something the Dunleavy camp should be selling hard to every single recruit.

that's a great award too garner two years in row. A testament to what Dunleavy and Staff can do for you as a player. And if Frazier gets drafted in the first or second round of the NBA draft, that will put an exclamation point on it.

well deserved. As noted it should help with recruiting.

Believe I also saw that he was 2nd team all conference? Was hoping he'd make 1st team, but still a tremendous accomplishment especially given our record. Wonder if the conference gives out a defensive player of the year?

They do. Gary Clark won it.

I know I have green colored glasses but I don't think I would take anybody in the AAC, defensively, over Frazier.

IF a academic excellence award would have been given by the conferences we have been in since 1950 I am sure we would have won it just about every time in football and basketball. As for winning a conference championship in either football or basketball I can only think that in 67 years we won only one in football and maybe one by Perry Clark in basketball. What Tulane has proven without a doubt is that the true student athlete can't win conference championships on the athletic field. The record speaks for itself. rjc

well Grumpy, many of us that went to Tulane do care about academic integrity and like to see our players leave here with degree in hand. It's important to us. That said, I think Tulane is trying to find a middle ground that admits student-athletes that can major in fields more in keeping with their life goals.

As a Tulanian and a Philadelphia Eagles and Philadelphia Phillies fan, there’s always next season. The Philadelphia Phillies have lost more games than any other professional team in the history of American sports. But they won it all again in 2008 and I was at the parade. The Eagles had never won a Super Bowl and last had an NFL championship in the early 1960s. They beat the team few said they could. There’s a reason you know a 67 year Tulane history.
