    Could a team full of Iowans win the National Title next year

    If you take the best players from our state. Put them all on a basketball team could they win it all. My lineup and I could be wrong

    Marcus Paige Shooting guard
    Harrison Barnes
    Doug Mcdermott
    BuBu at point

    Pretty sure I am missing a few guys. Help me out.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Looks like you may need a center. Can we get that tall dude from Sioux City to start as a freshman next year?

    With bench players Creekmur, Bohannon, Gatens. Maybe a deep tourny run but not title.

    Re: Could a team full of Iowans win the National Title next year

    The lineup still needs a big time point guard. I love BuBu as much as anybody, but he's not a starter on a legitimate national contender or even a major conference contender.

    He needs to stay the eff out of Iowa.

    Don't know if they would win it all but it looks like Ames High alums could make a run for a 3-3 national title.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    agreed. He should be arrested. He's stolen more talent from this state than any other coach in any other sport.

    No chance. At least some of those guys would have to sit out next year due to transfer rules so they could all get on the same team.

    Definitely a title contender.

    PG- Paige/BuBu
    SG- Paige/Gatens
    SF- Barnes
    PF- McDermott
    C- Woodbury

    Throw in the other guys like Creekmur/Uthoff who left the state, and you've got a pretty deep bench.
