College Basketball Top 100 Players: January

    
January 7th, 2010

The Collegehoops.net Top 100 is the ultimate ranking of college basketball's best players.  This is the 2nd of four quarterly editions during the 2009-10 college basketball season. The next edition will be released in late February.

 

The ranking is based on the following four criteria: 

A) performance/accomplishments, B) skill/talent, C) pro potential, D) impact/value to team.

 

This is not a pure NBA prospect ranking, which can be found here. Check out the Top 100: By the Numbers page for how many made list by class, age, conference, etc.  Let the debates begin..
