2012-13 College Basketball Previews

CBSSports.com College Basketball Staff
  •  

 (CBSSports.com Original)  
 

We did it last year in the middle of the season, but we're going to take a crack this time prior to the start of the 2012-13 college hoops campaign. CBSSports.com's stable of college basketball writers -- Gary Parrish, Jeff Goodman, Matt Norlander and Jeff Borzello -- have again decided to put together their own college basketball dream team. In short, each writer has drafted a team of 13 players currently playing college basketball, a coaching staff and recruits to target in the Class of 2013.

As we did a year ago, there will be stipulations:

Team-by-Team Analysis

-- Team cannot have more than one player from a single school (i.e. must choose either Aaron Craft or Deshaun Thomas, not both).

-- At least four players on the team must hail from a non-BCS affiliated league.

-- Bench players must be projected as non-starters this season.

-- One player will be chosen to redshirt, since few programs use all of their 13 scholarships (unless your name is Rick Pitino -- and then you oversign each year).

Here’s how our captains picked their teams. Which do you think is strongest? Let us know on Twitter: @EyeonCBB.
