Gerry McNamara from Syracuse, as well. He should be around 8-12 IMO.
Since they both play about 39 minutes a game in Jim Boehiem's vaunted 5-man rotation, I don't think we can include both in the list. It's one or the other, and I think GMac is more of the SG on the team now.

I do agree with 8-12 for either Edelin or G-Mac, whoever you want to put on the list.

I'd say Donnie McGrath from Providence could be in the lower part of that list. Also, Marques Green could be closer to the top 5: that guy is sick. Maybe his statistics come because he's on a poor team, but he's still the focal point that other teams try to stop and Green still lights 'em up like a Christmas tree.

Actually after digging deeper I would put Dawan Robinson from URI ahead of McGrath. Robinson has 17.5 pts and about 5 boards, 4 assists, and 2 steals per game. And shoots over 40% from 3-pt. range; from seeing him game-in / game-out the entire season thus far, the scoring and distribution aspects of the offense fall squarely on his shoulders.

Robinson's only a junior, so he should be a top-20 PG next year for sure.

Well it depends on how you define PG. Is it running a basketball team or just by scoring or just by defense? If you take into accound, scoring, passing, defending I would have to say Raymond Felton is the best PG. No other PG can come even close to his passing skills, and I feel he does the best job in the nation as a "pure" PG.

i think andre Barrett can be in the second or third spot, maybe you put him in front of felton based on the supporting crew felton's got.

It's important to remember that PG is the most stacked position in college basketball. The premier NBA floor generals still come through the collegiate system, and are probably the main reason why college hoops remains enjoyable. People mention a certian player ranked too high or too low, but I would challenge those people to look at the PG's ranked ahead of the one they are questioning. The lower PG's on this list are getting cheated, no matter who I put there.

If you look at individual games, there have been times where Felton's ability to dominate games with his "pure PG" skills is almost indescribable. But Felton certainly hasn't been consistent in that regard, and hasn't stepped up in certain games this year the way that you know he can. Chibullsfan gets into this somewhat on the ACC board. I certainly don't think Felton was overrated heading into the year, but it's hard for me to put him ahead of Nelson, Gordon, and Harris. They're simply doing more for their teams right now.

Personally, I think that Felton's "supporting crew" holds him back on a list like this. We all know that Felton is about as unstoppable off the dribble as any player in the country. However, he's got so many key scorers around him that he doesn't take advantage of his penetration ability as much as he should or could. Every time I watch the guy he goes off for 25, and I ask myself why he isn't averaging 30, let alone 15. Barrett is a great point guard, All-America worthy, but there's no doubt in my mind when I say that Seton Hall would be a better team if you replaced Barrett with Felton.

I can see Gordon and Nelson, but not Harris.

Harris 17 points, 4 boards, 5 assists.

Felton 12 points, 4 boards, 8 assists.

The only reason Felton has only 12 points a game is because UNC is stacked and they don't need him to score, if he has a green light to shoot whenever he wanted he would get a lot more points. And again it depends on what you think is a PG? Most people say assists is a huge stat for PG's, if that is so Felton is far superior to Harris. I say again his passing skills are second to none in college basketball. If we were just looking at scoring guards then yeah Felton is not that great. But in terms of PG's he is one of the best, and I feel he should be at least ahead of Harris.

I think where Harris gets a real advantage over Felton is on the defensive end. The guy is a shut-down defender, and anticipates in the passing lanes better than anybody in the country.

I half expect Felton to pass up Harris by the end of the year, but to this point, Harris has done more. His team is dominating their conference, and it's all him.

As far as NBA potential, I agree it's not even close.

If Wisconsin didn't have Devin Harris they would be a middle of the pack Big Ten team. He is very good. His ranking is justified. He is the engine that makes the Badgers go.
