NCAA Hoops: Top Shooting Guards

There are guys who make shots, and then there are shooters. Players who the opposition have to account for. In the half-court set these guys distort defenses - top defenders grab the assignment in the man-to-man, and zones shade to their side. Enter the shooting guards.

Steve Curry -Sophomore/Davidson - 25.8 ppg / FG 49% / 3Pt. 43%. Don’t be fooled into thinking that Curry has feasted off a weak Southern Conference schedule. Earlier this season the sophomore dropped 15 against UCLA, 24 vs. UNC, 20 against Duke, and 29 vs. NC State.

Brian Roberts - Senior/Dayton - 19ppg / FG 49% / 3Pt. 44%. Plays his best in the big games. Versus Louisville Roberts led the Flyers to 70-65 win with 28 points - against Pitt Roberts drained five of eight three pointers while scoring 31.

Eric Gordon - Freshman/Indiana - 21.7ppg / FG 47% / 3Pt. 40%. Possesses a deadly combination of range with the ability to go off the dribble. Not afraid to drive and dish - 2.5 assists per game.

AJ Graves - Senior/Butler - 13.8ppg / FG 37% / 3Pt. 35%. Look beyond the numbers. Graves draws double teams night in and night out. Has still managed some big games: 25 versus Florida St. and 18 against Texas Tech. Has scored in double figures in six straight games.

DeMarcus Nelson - Senior/Duke - 15.5ppg / FG 50% / 3Pt. 41%. For three years Nelson was known as a slasher whose game could easily be taken away because he couldn’t knock down a jumper. Not true any more. Has as much athleticism as anyone in the country. Now if he could just hit his free throws.
