  • SI.com's Top 10 College B-ball Point Guards

    1. Dee Brown, Senior, Illinois
    Brown was the Big Ten Player of the Year as a junior and flirted with the NBA before breaking his foot at a pre-draft camp. He was one-third of the Illini backcourt a year ago, averaging 13.3 points and 4.5 assists in Illinois' march to the title game. He'll shoulder the load this year after the departures of Deron Williams and Luther Head and could be an even bigger star.

    2. Daniel Gibson, Sophomore, Texas
    Gibson had a standout season as a freshman, starting all 31 of the Longhorns’ games. He led the team in points (14.2 per game), double-digit scoring games (25), assists (3.9), steals (55) and minutes played (32.8). He was the first freshman in Texas history to lead the team in scoring, and was the consensus pick for Big 12 Freshman of the Year.

    3. Rajon Rondo, Sophomore, Kentucky
    Rondo had an immediate impact as a freshman in 2004-05, stepping into the starting lineup from day one and never looking back. He averaged 8.1 points per game and dished out 3.4 assists. Rondo returns for his sophomore season after spending his summer playing with the U.S. under-21 team, which finished fifth at the World Championships. Rondo averaged 11 points over the team's 12 games.

    4. Gerry McNamara, Senior, Syracuse
    McNamara started all 34 games a year ago and all 100 in his career. He averaged 15.8 points per game last season and had 168 assists, by far the most on the team. He's the Orange's all-time leader in 3-point attempts with 823 and 3-pointers made with 297. An All-Big East performer in the regular season, and conference tourney, McNamara is poised for another solid season.

    5. Marcus Williams, Junior, Connecticut
    Williams finished third in the nation in assists last season, averaging 7.8 per game. He was named the Big East's most improved player and spent the summer playing with the U.S. under-21 team. Williams landed in hot water in the off-season, being charged with third-degree larceny in the theft of four laptop computers from a campus dormitory. He was given 18 months probation and has been suspended from the team indefinitely. His return to the court could follow once the case has been resolved in the university judicial system.

    6. Darius Washington, Sophomore, Memphis
    Washington took over the reigns of the Tigers as a freshman and grew into the team's leader by season's end. He was second on the team in scoring, averaging 15.4 points per game, and led the Tigers in assists with 144 (3.7pg) and 63 steals. He was among C-USA's top-10 in assists (eighth), steals (10th), scoring (ninth) and 3-point percentage (ninth).

    7. Mardy Collins, Senior, Temple
    Collins finished last season as the Owls' leader in points (17.5 ppg), steals (85), assists (109), rebounds (5.9 rpg) and minutes (37.6 per game). An All-Atlantic 10 selection, he was also named to the conference's all-defensive team. Collins was a member of the U.S. under-21 team in the summer.

    8. Taquan Dean, Senior, Louisville
    In his first season as the Cardinals' starting PG, Dean was the team's third-leading scorer, averaging 14.1 points per game and had 90 assists, while playing alongside Francisco Garcia. With Garcia off to the NBA, Dean will take over as the team leader as the Cardinals join the Big East.

    9. Carl Krauser, Senior, Pittsburgh
    Krauser averaged 16 points and 5.9 assists per game, 21st in the nation. He was among the Big East leaders in scoring (seventh), free-throw percentage (11th), assists (third), 3-pointers made (eighth) and assist-to-turnover ratio (14th). He became the fifth player in Pitt history to score 1,000 career-points and notch 400-plus assists.

    10. Jose Juan Barea, Senior, Northeastern
    Barea led the Huskies with 22.2 points per game last season and dished out 218 assists. He finished with an assist-to-turnover ratio of 1.63, third in the America East conference. A unanimous all-conference selection, he finished among the league leaders in free-throw percentage (third, 78.4), assist-to-turnover ratio (third), 3-pointers made (fifth, 2.27) and steals (fifth, 1.77).


    Never too early for college hoops.

    Obviously the list is wrong because it doesn't list every starting point guard in the ACC. Very buyist.
    On my mind: How can I shut up the singing English graduate student? How many more lossess will KU's basketball team have than its football team? How will the Rams front office screw up this year?

          Still have to wait another year in Columbus before Ohio States National Championship for basketball.

          They have the #1 Center 7'0 Greg Odin (who would've been the #1 pick in the NBA draft had they not changed the age limit), the #1 PF 6'8" Josh Chichester (who also will play for the football team), the #1 SG Dayquan Cook (Who is an AAU teammate of Odin and Conley), and the #1 PG Mike Conley (who is a HS teammate of Odins).

          Experts are calling it the best recruiting class since the Fab 5.
          You're being fucking dramatic. You own a TV and an air mattress. That's not exactly what I'd call "a lot to lose."

                  Dee Brown is more overrated than Notre Dame in a Catholic Church College Football Fantasy Football League.
                  Be passionate about what you believe in, or why bother.

                    The Conley kid is a stud. I saw a couple of his games on TV when I was at IU and I wouldn't be suprised if he ends up a better player than Oden. Not sealing the borders and letting both these guys get away, to Ohio St. nonetheless, could be the beginning of the end for Mike Davis.

                      I was really hoping you wouldn't post in this thread, ACC fag.

                      Tell me, how exactly is Dee Brown overrated? Because he doesn't play in your precious conference?

                        Geez, at least get their names right before you spout off about how they're the best ever (by the way, we hear this at least every other year).

                        Greg Oden
                        Daequan Cook
