Five players make a basketball team. But all it takes is three really good ones to form an ominous lineup.
Call them what you want: trios, big threes, three-headed monsters. Any of those labels apply to these 10 threesomes that will be the talk of the 2014-15 college basketball season.
This isn't to say they're the only good players in Division I, nor are their teams the only ones featuring quality lineups. Rather, the combination of each of their different skills to go with their size and position on the court make them worthy of being singled (er, tripled) out and praised.
One note on how these triumvirates were selected: none features more than one "newcomer" to the team, whether that be a high school or junior college recruit or a player who transferred from another program. Chemistry is a key ingredient to a successful grouping of talent, so in order to make this list, a team's big three has to have been at least two-thirds intact prior to this season.
