I’m not sure I realized it until I read this article, but we’re almost done with the first decade of the 2000’s. Where did it go? It seems just like yesterday my dad was digging an underground bunker and stocking it full of guns, flashlights, water and canned foodstuffs in preparation for Y2K. Here we are, 10 seasons of college basketball later and Eamonn Brennan at The Dagger made his list of the 10 best college basketball players of the 2000’s. But before you go looking for Tayshaun Prince, Keith Bogans or Chuck Hayes- don’t. No Kentucky players appear on the list. But it’s still worth a read, if only to remember that a man named Juan Dixon did once exist and lead the Maryland Terrapins to a fluke of an NCAA title in 2002.
I’m setting the over/under of the number of Cats in the Top 10 players of the 2010’s at 2.5. Takers?
