    Great Names in College B-Ball

    Just a list of names in college basketball that I've heard, thought were cool, and wanted to share.


    Maverick Ahanmisi- Minnesota
    Scoop Jardine- Syracuse
    Mookie Jones-Syracuse
    Fab Melo- Syracuse
    Jordair Jet- St. Louis
    Jimmer Fredette- BYU


    Got any others?


    Don't hit at all if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but never hit soft.

    Re: Great Names in College B-Ball

    How many of those names are their given names versus nicknames? The Jimmer's given name is James Taft Fredette - which is not so cool. I think the list should be limited to given names, or else you could come up with a "great nicknames" list.
