After a week of voting, it is time to announce True To The Cru’s Basketball Players of the Year, which were voted on both by the media and the general public at the conclusion of phenomenal seasons for both the UMHB men’s and women’s basketball teams, who each went deep in the NCAA Tournament, making the tournament in the same year for the first time in school history.
After a memorable 2021-22 season for the UMHB men’s and women’s basketball teams, True To The Cru would like to recognize and congratulate both teams on their accomplishments this past year, as both programs reached new heights and reached the second weekend of the NCAA Tournament.
In UMHB football’s dominant 65-20 victory over Louisiana College on Saturday, several players stepped up to lead the Cru to victory. Of these, a few stood out, and have been nominated for our weekly Player of the Week awards in the three categories of Offense, Defense and Special Teams.
Before getting into the winners of our first-ever Player of the Year awards, it is important to note that each of these candidates was deserving of the honor, and that we have a high level of respect for each of them. It takes an entire team to win games as the Crusaders did this past season, and each and every one of them played a role in that success.
