The Greatest Strength of Top College Basketball Teams in 2014-15

The top college basketball teams for the 2014-15 season will each do one thing well enough contend for a national championship.

For some of them, it's three-point shooting. For others, it's interior defense. Others still will simply be taller, better, faster and stronger than the competition. Whatever it is, there's something that clearly sets them apart from the crowd.

After all, we wouldn't be expecting them to open the season ranked in the top 20 if they didn't have some sort of bread and butter.

Two weeks ago, we looked at the biggest question mark for every top team. Now, let's figure out their exclamation marks.

These 20 teams are based on the composite rankings posted in late April by ESPN's Eamonn Brennan, CBS Sports' Gary Parrish, USA Today's Scott Gleeson and Nicole Auerbach, and B/R's C.J. Moore and Jason King. If you feel like your favorite team was unduly left off the list, blame them.
