CollegeBasketballTalk.com had a little exercise today of coming up with ‘Dream Teams’ for this year in college basketball. The premise was fairly simple. Pick a coach, a starting five and eight bench spots for a team that will spend a whole season together.
With a surprise to practically no one, Kentucky was well represented. Skal was the starting center for all three teams. Scott Phillips decided Jamal Murray would be a starter with Tyler Ulis on the bench. Phillips also was the only person to pick Coach Cal as his head coach. Kind of hard to imagine another guy that can maintain a ‘dream team’ better than Cal, huh?
So, let’s have fun with this. One simple rule here, you can’t pick all Kentucky guys. Who is your College Basketball Dream Team? Personally I’m going with Coach Cal and a starting five of Tyler Ulis, Kris Dunn, Jamal Murray, Ben Simmons and Skal. Off the bench will be Monte Morris, Demetrius Jackson, Kyle Wiltjer, Jakob Poeltl, Brandon Ingram, Buddy Hield, Jaylen Brown and Caris LeVert.
