Speed and skill on the perimeter, size inside.
This two-ingredient recipe for a balanced attack in college basketball seems simple, but if that were the case, everyone would be serving up that dish. Instead, only a select few teams have the players in both areas that are worthy of being considered a top inside-outside combo.
Connecticut had one, with point guard Shabazz Napier running things outside and forward DeAndre Daniels cleaning up and finishing underneath the basket, and the Huskies used that tandem to win their second national title in four years. Same with Louisville the season before, as guard Russ Smith and center Gorgui Dieng kept opponents from being able to focus on stopping one main threat.
Who will be the best inside-outside threats during the 2014-15 college basketball season? Here's our prediction for the top 10 combos.
