Jimmy Dorsey – Cape Breton Capers – AUS Jimmy Dorsey’s outstanding two-game explosion just about wraps-up the 2011-12 AUS Men’s basketball player-of-the-year conversation, and now opens up the debate of who should take the national award.

Ryan Barbeau – Western Mustangs – OUA Barbeau turned it into high-gear and cashed in on career-high 46-point game. The OUA West player-of-the-year award is still up for grabs and Barbeau continues to make a strong case, and could win the award if the Mustangs somehow get into the playoffs.

Jamelle Barrett – Saskatchewan Huskies – CW The premier point guard man in Canada West has the Huskies rolling towards the playoffs and another Final 8 appearance in Halifax.

Terry Thomas – St. FX – AUS It’s crazy to think that Thomas is only a sophomore and is already getting All-Canadian love.

Honorable Mention(s):

Tim Hunter – Bishops Gaiters – RSEQ We dug extra deep to find this one but with two qualities wins against Quebec’s top dogs it was hard to ignore the fourth-year, 6’7, 180 lbs, forward. The Gaiters have won 3-of-their-last-5 and are eying a last minute playoff spot after enduring an 0-7 start to season. Hunter is averaging 13.9 points, 5.8 rebounds (both team-highs) and 2.5 assists on the year.
