I stand behind my ballot.

Leaving Jonquel Jones and Shereesha Richards off, in particular, is a travesty. And there’s no way some schools should have multiple players on this list.

And the Pac-12 has the highest RPI of any conference in DI, but has only two players on the list? No way.

I’m truly stunned.
