The Sporting News’ Mike DeCourcy recently ranked the 50 best players in college basketball by position, and interestingly, Louisville had the most of any team, including Kentucky, with five. Kentucky came in second with four. Here’s his breakdown:
Willie Cauley-Stein (#3 center)
Andrew Harrison (#2 point guard)
Alex Poythress (#6 small forward)
Julius Randle (#3 power forward)
Now, I understand the hesitancy to put freshman on preseason lists because they haven’t played a college game yet, but considering the star power in UK’s freshman class, I’d put Aaron Harrison and maybe even James Young on that list as well. Something tells me this list will look MUCH different come April.
