  6. Fredette, seniors highlight awards voting

    Eamonn Brennan

    Remember back in October, when North Carolina's Harrison Barnes became the first freshman to be selected as a preseason first-team AP All-American? Many thought Barnes was merely overhyped. That was probably true (though Barnes did live up to his adv...
