Who are your favorite non-Texas college basketball players?


I thought this would be a fun question to ask. Who are your favorite college basketball players other than the ones that play for Texas?

Here are mine:

Dramond Green. I love the Dancing Bear. Such an unusual combination of skills. A big physical rebounder who also handles the ball and passes. He is a big guy who makes his teammates better. He is also shooting 40% from beyond the arc this season.

Tyshawn Taylor. This guy takes loads of crap, and I don't really think it is fair. Sure, he is turnover prone, but he does so many other things really well. In our culture, we are so obsessed with what people do poorly, that we often downplay everything else. And after watching The Street Stops Here, I really want to root for him. In that movie, he seemed like such a hard working, determined, and yet scared, kid.

Tyler Zeller. A tall skinny guy who rebounds, makes free throws, and runs the court hard. In my mind, I imagine that I could have been him if I had been 5 or 6 inches taller. I probably couldn't have been, but hey, a guy can dream.
