Basketball is one of the most popular sports in America, alongside baseball and football. In the world of US Basketball, the National Basketball Association reigns supreme in terms of setting the benchmark of the best in this sport. Despite the intense popularity of the NBA, which is considered to be a professional league, the minor league somehow doesn’t lack in luster. Through the NCAA, college basketball teams have been competing with each other to find out the best on the hard court.
In the quest to know the best of the best, here are some of the top teams of college basketball from the 2009-2010 season.
First on the list is the Kansas Jayhawks that boasts of its first five players. With highly experienced players like Sherron Collins and Cole Aldrich on their line up, this team definitely made a mark on college basketball as it won the basketball competition in a flash. The next team is of course the Michigan State Spartans which also takes pride in their veteran players playing the offense in the likes of Travis Walton and Goran Suton. Aside from playing a strong offense, this team also had a strong defense with Chris Allen and Kalin Lucas. What made this team really powerful in the offense is Korie Lucious who is known for his shooting prowess. Third on the list is North Carolina Tar Heels, despite losing its formidable players Ellington, Hansbrough, Frasor, Green and Lawson. The great thing about this team is that it has never lost its spirit despite the loss of its great players because a new breed of Tar Heels is all set to battle on the hard court with the veterans of other teams. The rookies of North Carolina will surely be a threat to the senior players of the league.
These are just three of the top college basketball teams that have produced great basketball players who end up getting drafted in the NBA.
