    Default Praise for Nick in POY talk on ESPN

    2. Nick Johnson, Arizona
    : Forget ACMcDAT negligence: The best argument for keeping the rest of these rankings fresh resides in Tucson, Ariz. Johnson is an efficient scorer and all-around offensive player who also just so happens to be an elite perimeter defender. On Wednesday, the former gave Arizona the decisive go-ahead margin it needed in a 3-point survival at Stanford. But it was the latter -- that defense, and how coach Sean Miller implements Johnson alongside the Wildcats' brutish interior core -- that held the Cardinal to just two field goals in the final 10 minutes. Before Johnson iced his 3, he made one of the best help-defense blocks we've seen all season. It was his national-player-of-the-year case wrapped in one tidy highlight package. In any other season, he'd be No. 1.

    Thanks for posting bengcord3. I agree with this write-up. Besides his non-stop hustle and effort on the offensive end, Nick is as ferocious as they come on defense. I believe he has more of those fantastic sky high blocks than anyone else. When you consider his height on top of that, it's UNBELIEVABLE. The one that I'll never forget was the sky high block on that seven footer! That one had me reelin' and squeelin' for about ten straight minutes.

    Bear Down Nick!

    Here's another another article praising Nick calling him Captain Clutch.

    I can't remember which game it was in. I think it was from last season. I believe it was from the game with Washington, blocking Aziz N'Dyae or however you spell his name.

    I'll watch those games as soon as I can. If I find it, then I have to figure out how to get it from DVD into the computer and then to here. I'll do my best.
