CollegeHoops.net Top 100 Players: March

    
March 11th, 2009

The Collegehoops.net Top 100 is the ultimate ranking of college basketball's best players.  This is the third of four quarterly editions for the 2008-09 college basketball season. The next edition will be released in April, after the completion of the NCAA Tournament.

 

CHN staffers Jason Brubaker, Dan Daitchman, Jeff Fox, Blake Hofstad, Kevin McNeill, Matthew Ryter, Shawn Siegel, and Jon Teitel, (with additional help from Jeff Borzello and Raphielle Johnson) voted 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 Let the debates begin..
