March Madness means it’s also time for publications that couldn’t care less about basketball to put out basketball features. Seventeen Magazine took a break from trying to justify Justin Beiber’s bad decisions to rank the Top 30 Hottest College Basketball Players, and FOUR Cats made the list, all in the Top 5. That’s more than any other school, so you know, there’s that.
Coming in at #2, right behind Jabari Parker? None other than Jarrod Polson:
2. Jarrod Polson, University of Kentucky Wildcats
Hometown: Wilmore, KY.
Why He’s Hot: We love how Polson’s blue jersey brings out the color of his dreamy eyes… Kentucky may not be one of the top 25 teams, but they’re ranked 8th in the midwest, and score #2-#5 on our hotties list. Click on for more Wildcats!
Girls like twins, too, so the Twins are next up on the list:
3. & 4. Aaron Harrison & Andrew Harrison, University of Kentucky Wildcats
Hometowns: Richmond, TX.
Why They’re Hot: After a rocky early season, the Harrison twins are playing some of their best combined basketball yet, as displayed in their SEC tournament semifinal win over Georgia. Plus, what’s hotter than one cute basketball player? Matching cute basketball players!
5. Willie Cauley-Stein, University of Kentucky Wildcats
Hometown: Olathe, Kan.
Why He’s Hot: This 7-foot forward is known for a killer slam dunk, and we’d like to add for his killer smile, too. Willie rounds out a total of four Kentucky Wildcats on our list, more than any other school in our bracket!
Also, he loves coloring and coloring books, which makes him perfect for Seventeen’s demographic.
No Julius Randle?? Come on, Seventeen. Check out the whole list here.
