USF’s MVP: Anthony Collins

In a decision that should surprise absolutely no one, freshman point guard Anthony Collins was named the John and Cynthia Ruzic Most Valuable Player for the University of South Florida men’s basketball team during Monday night’s awards banquet.
Collins was the pivotal player for USF, which went 22-14 and came within one victory of reaching the NCAA tournament’s Sweet 16. Collins also claimed the team’s free-throw shooting award (84.7 percent).
USF coach Stan Heath said Collins, from Houston, was initially spotted by assistant coach Reggie Hanson. When Heath got his first look, he immediately wanted to offer a scholarship. And when Collins settled into a regular starting role this season, Heath said he knew USF had found its permanent point guard.
