My Team's Better!

by Oliver Hughes
Posted // 2012-09-29 -

This past weekend, my basketball team went on a camping trip. While packed in around the fire, we played a little game. Choosing a single college, we “drafted” teams where our players could only consist of players who went to that college. Each of my teammates picked a school and we went to work. We could each pick a starting five, a sixth man and a coach. At the end, we ranked the teams and formed a tournament.

A heated debate followed, with each of us pleading our cases as to which teams were better and which team would win the “tournament.” The following are the teams as they were drafted. Next week, I will post the rankings and results of the tournament. All players were considered for their collegiate, not professional, career, and stats are accumulated over the player’s college career.
