CBSSports.com posted their 2012-13 Top 50 Big Men of college basketball.

 

To no one's surprise, Indiana's Cody Zeller was selected as the No. 1 big man in CBB.

The rest of their Top 10 rounded out like this:

2. Doug McDermott (Creighton)

3. Nerlens Noel (Kentucky)

4. Mike Moser (UNLV)

5. Tony Mitchell (North Texas)

6. James Michael McAdoo (North Carolina)

7. Trevor Mbakwe (Minnesota)

8. Jeff Withey  (Kansas)

9. C.J. Leslie (NC State)

10. Gorgui Dieng (Louisville)

No serious arguments here.

 

But, looking through the rest of the list, I was surprised that several names were missing.

While I wasn't expecting them to be up at or near the top, I was not expecting them to be non-existent.

No offense to the defending national champs, but it's hard for me to accept that Kentucky has three names on this list (Nerlens Noel - No. 3; Alex Poythress - No. 14; Kyle Wiltjer - No. 44) while these players go unacknowledged.

Here are the Top 10 Overlooked Big Men of CBB:
