Top 50 seniors 2012-2013

Top 50 Seniors 2012-2013

This list started with 81 guys and was the hardest list I have ever made. There were a lot of great players that I planned on having included when I decided on the topic, but didn’t make it.

People are saying that college basketball is down this year but that is false. It might not have the star power but there is a lot of parity and this list shows 50 great veterans who will make this season very exciting. I honestly think you could make a case for every one of these guys to be in the top 10.

1. Isaiah Canaan, PG Murray St
2. CJ McCollum, SG Lehigh
3. Jeff Withey, C Kansas
4. Alex Oriakhi, C Missouri
5. Pierre Jackson, PG Baylor
6. Kenny Boynton, SG Florida
7. Christian Watford, SF Indiana
8. Solomon Hill, SF Arizona
9. Mason Plumlee, C Duke
10. Mike Snaer, SG Florida St
11. Matthew Dellavedova, PG St Mary’s
12. Rodney Mcgruder, SG Kansas St
13. Seth Curry, G Duke
14. Ryan Kelly, PF Duke
15. Vincent Council, PG Providence
16. Rontei Clarke, G Butler
17. Nate Wolters, PG South Dakota St
18. Reggie Johnson, C Miami
19. Elijiah Johnson, PG Kansas
20. Brock Motum, PF Washington St
21. DJ Cooper, PG Ohio
22. Dexter Strickland, G UNC
23. Travis Releford, SG Kansas
24. Jack Cooley, PF Notre Dame
25. Drew Crawford, SG Northwestern
26. Rodney Williams, SF Minnesota
27. Brandon Paul, SG Illinois
28. Peyton Siva, PG Louisville
29. Erik Murphy, PF Florida
30. Aziz N’Diaye, C Washington
31. Jordan Hulls, PG Indiana
32. Kenny Kadiji, PF Miami
33. Tray Woodall, PG Pitt
34. Brandon Davies, PF BYU
35. Jeronne Maymon, F Tennessee
36. Tim Frazier, PG Penn St
37. Keith Clanton, PF UCF
38. Brandon Triche, PG Syracuse
39. Mouph Yarou, C Villanova
40. Elias Harris, F Gonzaga
41. Laurence Bowers, F Missouri
42. Darius Theus, PG VCU
43. Michael Dixon, G Missouri
44. Robert Covington, F Tennessee St
45. Steven Pledger, SG Oklahoma
46. Kerron Johnson, PG Belmont
47. Richard Howell, PF NCST
48. Jackie Carmichael, PF Illinois St
49. Zeke Marshall, C Akron
50. Arsalan Kazemi, F Rice

Just Missed- Jordan Henriquez, Scott Wood, DJ Richardson, EJ Singler, Jio Fontan

lol give me peyton siva over

lol give me peyton siva over guys like brandon paul, jack cooley, and drew crawford. I think Richard howell, mouph yarou, and triche all should be in the late 20's but other than that, not a terrible list. not a good one either lol

I would

I would put Cashmere Wright over Darius Theus. And you got to have Carl Jones in there and Khalif Wyatt at least on the bubble.

Triche

I am very excited about triche and the orange...I think they are going to have a big year. They have a 7-8 guys with nba talent. No NBA all stars, but a lot of Hakeem Warricks

4. Alex Oriakhi, C Missouri

Anybody else think he is vastly over rated?

I mean...lamb and drummond were lottery picks, somebody has to take the fall for last season.

No offense man do you

No offense man but Jordan hulls is really just a shooter. That's about it.. And now with yogi there I think he will play off ball even more and focus on his shooting. An amazing shooter for sure but he doesn't distribute as much as a pg should even though I do think he's a good passer. He's not very big or athletic and he's definitely not quick enough defensively for a lot of the quicker guards. He's even worse defensively if he's playing the two.

This is coming from a lifelong IU fan btw. I love the guy but with all the talent coming in he looks like a 12 and 3 guy.

fantasy college basketball

Why hasn't anybody thought of it for fun? U know like drafting players and making teams with college bball players, that would be so fun, but i think there would be some issues with the NCAA not sure what though... But wouldnt that be pretty fun

that assessment

that assessment of Jordan Hulls was right on. Hulls is a great 3 pt shooter and distributes from the perimeter, but he has little ability to get into the paint. I definitely think 12 and 3 is reasonable numbers for him. Also, I guarantee you when you look back on this season you Cash Wright and Carl Jones going to end up being good enough to make top 50 seniors.

Mbakwe and Berggren

You forgot Trevor Mbakwe and Jared Berggren, arguably the two best big man in the Big 10 (if not the two best players).

Not two best

big men in the Big10. Maybe two best senior big men on one team. Watford > both, and he's a natural SF . CZeller > both. Mitch McGary may be better than both.

Oriakhi has been a disappointment in my eyes so far. As a freshman he looked like he had the frame to be the next Okafor but his progression has been much slower. To be fair he won a national title but was never close to the impact of Okafor or most UConn big men.

Jackie Carmichael is legit if you guys have not seen him play almost a clone of Andrew Nicholson.

Seriously

Seriously, Carmichael plays like Nicholson. No way. Nicholson is a great shooter for a big man and will be used as a stretch 4 guy in the league and will also post up occassionally. Carmichael can't shoot half as good as Nicholson from deep or mid range. I just have no clue where you got that comparison they play nothing alike.

?

Did you watch the video you posted? He catches the ball off a hail mary pass and hoists it immediately with 1 second left. And his shot is ugly. Goes in off the backboard, though.

But it certainly doesn't display his shooting "touch" like you said.

Not sure I agree with you about him being a "Nicholson clone", either. And its odd you used a video of Carmichael hitting an ugly 3PFG to prove your point. He only attempted 4 3PFG's all season, and only 7 3PFG attempts in his 3 years in college. In comparison, Nicholson made 53 3PFG attempts as a senior, nearly 2 per game.

Nicholson made 6 3's his

Nicholson made 6 3's his first 3 years, I guess he did improve his shooting in his final year a lot but Carmichael shoots well from the mid range and I think he will shoot the ball from 18-20 fine in the NBA. And anyway no two players are exactly alike, they probably were a little more alike a year ago but I dont think Nicholson is that much better of a shooter as some people think he is. Derrick Williams shot well over 50% from three in college and it did not translate to the pros exactly.
