College Sports Madness (CSM) is a website created by journalist Joel Welser, who has covered college sports for more than a decade.
Senior guard TyShwan Edmondson, who earned first-team All-OVC honors last spring, is listed a preseason first-team All-OVC selection by College Sports Madness in 2011-12 along with junior forward Anthony Campbell, who was a second-team All-OVC selection in 2009-10 before injuring his knee early during the 2010-11 season. Edmondson averaged 17.1 ppg a year ago in his first season as a Gov while Campbell averaged 13.9 ppg in 10 games in 2010-11, but 15.5 ppg the previous season.
