Nerlens Noel Named Defensive Player of the Month
ESPN.com has named Nerlens Noel defensive player of the month for December.
Defensive Player of the Month – Nerlens Noel, Kentucky
(November: Jeff Withey)
Noel finished in the top 10 in both blocks (4.0 BPG) and steals (2.8 SPG), while also finishing in the top 25 among rebounders (9.7 RPG). He’s now on track to be the first player since Houston’s Bo Outlaw in 1992-93 to average 3.5 blocks and 2.5 steals.
Jay Bilas thinks Noel is right in the hunt for the defensive player of the year race, as you can see from this reply to Kyle Tucker on twitter.
@kyletucker_cj I have Withey (58 blocks, only 14 fouls) and Briante Weber (tops nation in STLS in 21 mpg) ahead. Noel third, 46B, 34S, 39F.
