Two white guys-- Adam Morrison and J.J. Redick--as the best college basketball players in America (Jewel of a Duel, March 6)? What's this wacky world coming to? Next thing you know, a black guy will be the best golfer.
Morrison and Redick each deserves consideration as the player of the year, but what Morrison has been able to achieve defies comparison. Like Adam, my son is a college student and a type 1 diabetic. Just thinking about the personal discipline necessary to get through the day without being affected by the multiple symptoms of this disease is exhausting. Morrison's ability to compete at the top level is nothing short of heroic. To me, and to the many dads like me, there's no contest.

I enjoyed the college basketball player polls (The Poll, March 6). The players confirmed my feelings--from watching on TV--regarding which guys were overrated or big trash talkers.

Although I'm probably not the first person to do this--and hope that I'm not the last--I nominate Jason McElwain, the autistic basketball manager from Athena High in Greece, N.Y., who scored 20 points in four minutes (Scorecard, March 6), for SI's Sportsman of the Year.
