Thomas Robinson Finishes Second In POY Voting To Anthony Davis

Kansas Jayhawks forward Thomas Robinson didn't win the Player of the Year award this season, since everyone knew that belonged to Anthony Davis, but Robinson did finish second in the voting with only half as many votes as the Kentucky Wildcats star.

Davis received 43 votes Friday from the 65-member national media panel that selects the weekly Top 25 prior to the NCAA tournament. Robinson received 20 votes, while Michigan St. Spartans big man Draymond Green received the two remaining votes.

Davis is the first freshman to win the award, joining the company of former Texas Longhorns standout Kevin Durant who did it in 2007. Robinson still has a host of accolades on the season, since he was the first unanimous All-American pick since Blake Griffin in 2009. Also, if the Jayhawks take care of business against the Ohio St. Buckeyes on Saturday, and the Wildcats defeat the Louisville Cardinals as expected, Robinson and Davis will have a chance to go head-to-head on the biggest stage in college basketball.
