Ranking the Nation's Top 20 Point Guards for 2013-14 NCAA Basketball Season
Brendan Maloney-USA TODAY Sports
Oklahoma State's Marcus Smart could have been one of the first players taken in the 2013 NBA Draft. Smart decided instead to return for his sophomore season to lead the Cowboys.

College basketball could be in for some of its best point guard play since the NBA started gobbling up all the best college players. 

Think about this: The best perceived point guard, Marcus Smart, could have been one of the first players taken in the NBA draft and decided to come back to school. Almost any other guy in his position would be a millionaire right now.

There's a good group of senior points guards: Ohio State's Aaron Craft, Connecticut's Shabazz Napier, Michigan State's Keith Appling, Memphis' Joe Jackson and New Mexico's Kendall Williams, to name a few.

It's at least a possibility—not saying it's true, but possible—that Kentucky freshman Andrew Harrison is as good of a point guard as John Calipari has ever coached. 

Is it the year of the point guard? Ehhh... It's probably the year of Andrew Wiggins, whether he succeeds or fails. But we could look back fondly in 10 years on this group of point guards and realize we should have given them more love back then. 

And hey, we did save the point guards for last in these positional rankings. In case you missed it, the rest of the rankings are below with the grand finale—the top 100 players in college basketball—coming on Friday.
