College Basketball: The Top 15 True Point Guards in 2012-13

True point guards are a treat to watch. They don't "wow" you in the traditional scoring way, but they impact the game just the same. A "true" point guard is a facilitator—they set up the offense and make plays for teammates.

One of the best in recent memory was Kendall Marshall at North Carolina. His influence on every game was seen through his 9.8 assists per game, not his 7.8 points per game.

Marshall would be a shoe-in for this list had he stayed in school. Although we won't see his talents in college, these 15 facilitators play his style as "pass-first" point guards. 

And that is what a "true" point guard is—one that will always look for the extra pass. Unselfishness is a must for these players on the basketball court.

 

I'll also note that these are returning players. No freshmen will be included in this list.
