With Anthony Davis having earned the No. 1 overall selection in last night’s NBA draft, it’s hard to dispute the value of a great defensive player in college basketball these days. Even with Davis and his devastating shot-blocking skills off to the NBA, though, there will still be plenty of superlative defenders left in the college ranks for 2012-13.

One of the best of that group will be the player Davis faced in last season’s national championship game, Kansas center Jeff Withey. The 7’0” Jayhawk will look to improve, somehow, on a junior season that saw him block 3.6 shots a game while anchoring the defense for the national runners-up.

Read on for more on Withey and the rest of the best shot-swatters and ball hawks in college hoops for next season.
