Press Break The Post's Rundown of Local and National College Basketball
Bracketized - January 24, 2009

Each week in this space, Press Break will run a bracket-style tournament with user voting determining who advances and ultimately "wins."

Last week, after some readers questioned whether it was really a legitimate rivalry, George Mason-VCU was declared college basketball's best. This week's question asks Bracketized readers: Who is the area's best three-point shooter? The featured pairing is below, with the other seven on the jump. We'll run first-round voting through Tuesday, with quarterfinals Wednesday, semis Thursday and the final Friday through Saturday evening. We'll run the winner in Sunday's paper.

VCU vs GMU may be the best matchup in the CAA, and GMU may consider VCU it's "rival." However, you'll still find that VCU/ODU or VCU/Richmond are much more hated rivalries. That being said, those weren't options, so we voted for the best option available.

I think Garrison Carr is the most unlucky player in the region. You matched him up against Maynor in the "best area player" and "best three-point shooter" polls within the same month!! Maynor is really good and deserves "player" but Garrison is certainly the better pure "shooter".

I don't know how you can possibly say that Garrison car is a better "pure shooter." Both Garrison's FG% and FT% are no where near as good as Eric's and Eric has taken far more shots.
