When you think of great college point guards, what qualities come to mind?
Do you simply think of ball-handling and play-making skills…?Or has your paradigm shifted to include the multi-talented, super-gifted players that now do it all from the “1”?
Throughout the years, many of the best point guards were “pass-first” points, focused almost exclusively on bringing the ball up, running the offense and distributing the rock to their teammates in scoring position.
More recently, we see that the players who run the point may be just as much of a scoring threat as anyone else on the court, while still delivering the ball to the rest of their team.
There is no “right way” to play point. What matters most is that they are leading their team.
They run the show. And In some cases, they are the show.
Lets look at the Top 40 College Floor Generals of all-time.
We will consider players back as far as the 1920’s and rank them according to a wide assortment of standards such as points, assists, steals, assists-to-turnover ratio, awards and many more.
Because of the significant role that the PGs play, we will also factor in team accomplishments.
What conference do you think has the most players on this list? Who do you think should be in the Top Ten of this list.
Go ahead and take a stab at it before you begin!
