    Re: The Big Lead: 50 Best Players in College Basketball for 2014-2015

    I wasn't necessarily surprised, but kind of disappointed that they didn't have Monte on the list. After the season he had and how much recognition he was getting, I figured he deserves it. BDJ should've probably made the list as well.

    #4 returning player. Could be #1 I take Georges over the 2 Wiscy kids and Harrell too.


    Zona kids are a little low and Winston Shephard should be up there too.

    Dunno why people hatin on the Harrisons I thought they were good and rode them through the tourney and all of a sudden people saying they suck.

    Ya, the Harrisons figured it out and turned it on late in the year. They will be pretty big time next year.

    True. But USA Today is a better source than answers.com and some other links people post.

    That's some good pub, but it's not the most credible forecasting source I've seen. Last year they left Kane and Ejim - you know, two All-Americans - off last year's list. Missed on Royce the year before too. Granted, their production the previous season didn't make it easy to forecast what happened their final seasons, but still. For what's it worth I agree with most of their choices for this upcoming year.

    Their Aaron Craft homerism was pretty hilarious.

    Maybe so, but it gets a little old every time someone pokes fun at the hoks there are so many CFers ready to flame. Sports are fun, lively debate and joking about rivals is fun. I am not afraid to say I thoroughly enjoy watching the hoks lose. People are so worried about looking like little brother and take this too seriously.

    Their huge derpth has buried them deep on the list - 20 minutes a game per player does not allow stat building.

    Apparently the two USA Today reporters that did last season's college basketball preview were not on the same page, or even the same planet.

    One of the reporters picked us to finish dead last in the Big XII, but the other projected us as a #5 seed for the NCAA Tournament (we ended up being a #3 seed). It was rather comical in fact. The Big XII prediction was toward the middle of the preview magazine and you flipped the page over and it had the NCAA Tournament seed predictions. I think we know which reporter had his head up his gluteus maximus.

    Seriously though, doesn't a returning player who set a statistical record as a freshman deserve to be on this list ahead of some who have yet to step on a DI court?
