Cooler Than You: Some Of The Best Of College Basketball--Rush The Court

The All-Jeff Fryer Team

This list of the best long-range bombers is named after the legendary (in our minds) Loyola Marymount guard who still holds the record for most three-pointers made in an NCAA Tournament game, an incredible 11 against Michigan in 1990’s second round. If you can catch that game on ESPN Classic, it is something to behold. You have to be a little nuts to be a bomber; you have to forget your last miss like it never happened and be willing to keep firing even when they just won’t fall (our editors are familiar with this feeling). Here’s our ranking of 25 of this season’s best:
14. Gordon Hayward, Butler
15. Troy Cotton, Wisconsin-Green Bay

Preseason Conference Media/Coaches Polls--Ballin' is a Habit

Horizon League Media Poll - Butler (43), Cleveland State (2), Wright State (1)
First off, I want to know what the person was smoking who picked Wright State over Butler. That's like the one guy who didn't vote for Cal Ripken Jr. on the Hall of Fame ballot. (Yes, I'm an Orioles fan. No, don't make fun of me, I already feel bad enough about it.) Nonetheless, this is Butler's league to win. Cleveland State is a good team ( they beat Syracuse and Wake Forest last year) and could possibly sneak up and win the conference tournament, but they don't have the horses to run with Butler during the season. Shelvin Mack, Gordon Hayward and Matt Howard aren't just the best trio in the conference; they could be the best trio in the entire country too.
