Last week I picked my top five men's basketball players in the Mountain East Conference. There were some strong opinions on the matter on social media, and the discussion helped me come to a conclusion – the MEC is really good at basketball.
So we decided to leave it to you. Here is a list of all ten of the best players in the MEC, as referenced by several Twitter users, and a few facts about each player. Cast your vote at the bottom of the page. The poll closes Monday at noon EST, so be sure to get your vote in on time, share with friends so they can vote as well, and check back next week to see who won!
