Ranking the Nation's Top 20 Shooting Guards for 2013-14 NCAA Basketball Season

Louisville's Russ Smith averaged 18.7 points on 14 shots last season.

If there's a common theme among the best shooting guards in the country, it's that they are admirers of their own shots.

At least, you would think so with some of the chuckers we've got at this position. Marshall Henderson of Ole Miss set an NCAA record for three-point attempts last year. Louisville's Russ Smith puts up some of the most ridiculous shots that Rick Pitino gave him one of the best nicknames in college basketball: "Russdiculous." 

That's not to say that chucking has become an issue for these particular teams or an epidemic in college basketball, something that could have been argued in the NBA during Allen Iverson's heyday.

Smith was a big reason why the Cardinals were the best team in the country last year, and Henderson helped the Rebels make the NCAA tournament for the first time in 11 years.

These are the 20 chuckers, ahem, shooting guards expected to have the most productive seasons. 

In case you missed it, here are the top 20 centers, top 20 power forwards and top 20 small forwards and the schedule for the remaining lists are below. 

Nov. 6: Point Guards

Nov. 8: Top 100
