If you are voting with your heart, Devan Downey is the runaway winner for SEC player of the year. He does more with his talent than perhaps any player in the country. At 5-foot-9, he often plays like the biggest man on the court. How can you not side with a player who, despite his vertical liability, not only leads the conference in scoring but competes with a heart bigger than the arenas he plays in? Downey single-handedly injected the “life” back into USC’s Colonial Life Arena this season. Unfortunately for Downey and USC fans, the SEC player of the year does not go to the crowd favorite.
