Poll: Who won our college hoops draft?

November, 6, 2012
Earlier today, myself, Myron Medcalf, Joe Lunardi and Fran Fraschilla sat down at our computers, readied our finest trash talk, and set about drafting four college basketball "fantasy" teams.

The rules were straightforward: Each team got five starters, one sixth man, a coach and an arena. Since we're not keeping actual "fantasy" stats over the course of the season -- it's kind of hard to keep stats for a coach, with the possible exception of wins and "terrifying death stares per 40 minutes" -- the point was not to field the best statistical roster but to build the best and most well-coached college basketball team possible.


Who put together the best team for the 2012-13 season in ESPN.coms first annual college basketball draft?
