CSN's college hoops awards: All-DMV teams
March 15, 2014, 12:45 pm

Before everyone starts blowing off work and their families to focus on filling out umpteen NCAA Tournament brackets, we at CSN wanted to put a capper on the 2013-14 regular season. Specifically, honor the top players, coaches and moments in the DMV that defined the dramatic campaign. Our three-member panel -- Comcast SportsNet's Rob Carlin, Terps beat writer Dan Martin and yours truly -- was tasked with looking at all the D1 programs in D.C., Maryland and Virginia to come up with the best of the best. Whether you concur or have serious beef, share your opinion below or hit us up on Twitter. The ball is tipped and there you are... 

CSN's First Team

Jerrelle Benimon, Towson - CAA Player of the Year paced D1 with 21 double-doubles, finished third in rebounding average.

Malcolm Brogdon, Virginia - Breakout season with 12.7 points per game for ACC champs.

Markel Starks, Georgetown - Fiery leader and Big East's fourth leading scorer with 17.1 ppg.

Maurice Creek, George Washington - The Colonials missing piece sank 41 percent of his 3's.

Isaiah Armwood, George Washington - Top defensive big man in the area. Just ask Doug McDermott.

CSN's Second Team:

Dez Wells, Maryland - Nobody wants to imagine where the Terps would have finished without Dez, right?

Treveon Graham, VCU - Created offensive havoc for defenses, averaging a team-high 15.5 points.

D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera, Georgetown - There isn't a more creative scorer in the DMV then the sophomore guard.

Marcus Thornton, William & Mary - Scored 18.7 game and came thisclose to leading W&M to its first NCAA berth.

Darius "Pee Wee" Gardner, American - The straw that stirred the (non-alcoholic) drink for the NCAA-bound Eagles.

Juvonte Reddic, VCU - The Rams muscle man inside raised his rebounding average for a fourth straight season.

Honorable mention: Dylon Cormier (Loyola - Md)
