Headline Gorgui love from Ari Kramer of Rant Sports

Nuggets: "...one could make a strong case that Dieng, who swatted seven shots against Michigan State, was the conference’s best defender in 2011-12. Melo averaged 2.9 blocks, 5.8 boards and 0.5 steals in 25.4 minutes per game while Dieng stayed on the floor for 32.8 minutes per game to post 3.2 blocks, 1.2 steals and 9.1 rebounds. Yes, Melo’s per 40 block rate (4.6) is superior to Dieng’s (3.9), but what does block rate matter if you can’t stay on the floor?" "Anyway, Melo bolted for the NBA, leaving Dieng as the clear favorite to earn defensive player of the year honors in 2012-13. In fact, Dieng could very possibly be the nation’s top defender."
