Thabeet a Naismith Finalist

Hasheem Thabeet has been named one of the four finalists for the 2009 Naismith Men’s College Player of the Year award. Pittsburgh’s DeJuan Blair, Oklahoma’s Blake Griffin (who'll probably win) and North Carolina’s Tyler Hansbrough round out the “final four.”

The winner will be named at the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) Guardians of the Game awards program on Sunday, April 5 in Detroit.

The finalists were voted on by the Atlanta Tipoff Club’s Board of Selectors, comprised of leading basketball journalists, coaches and administrators from around the country. The board based its criteria on player performances this season. The vote was tabulated and certified by the accounting firm of Habif, Arogeti & Wynne, LLP. HA&W is the largest independent accounting firm in Georgia and one of the top 50 firms in the United States.
