For Kentucky's Anthony Davis it has been a remarkable season that already includes SEC Offensive & Defensive player of the year awards. However, as Davis and the rest of the Wildcats prepare for the Louisville Cardinals Saturday in the Final Four, news broke that Davis had been voted The Associated Press men's college basketball Player of the Year.
Davis received 43 out of a possible 65 first place votes from the media panel that also votes for the Top 25. Thomas Robinson of Kansas came in second place, as Draymond Green of Michigan State came in third. Robinson can avenge the loss if he and the rest of the Jayhawks can get by Ohio State in the other Final Four matchup on Saturday. 
There's some bittersweet history that comes with the award for Davis as he joins only Kevin Durant as the only other freshman to ever win it, as Durant took home the honors in 2007 with Texas. However, his 14.3 points per game this season is the lowest since Patrick Ewing averaged 14.6 for Georgetown to win Player of the Year in 1984-85. 
Davis was a monster this season for the Wildcats averaging 10.0 rebounds and 4.6 blocks to go along with his 14 points on just over 64% shooting. Many experts project Davis to be the first overall pick in 2012 NBA Draft which should land him a job with the Charlotte Bobcats. 
Before Davis thinks about that he first has to add the finishing touches to a remarkable freshman season with a National Championship.
TL;DR  Anthony Davis of Kentcuky was voted Player of the Year in college basketball.
