Group Rankings: Inside-Outside Combos


Balance is key in college basketball. Even if you are stacked in the backcourt, you may be weak on the interior. Conversely, a team may be loaded in the paint, but not very potent on the perimeter. To make noise in the NCAA Tournament, production from both inside and outside is necessary. Here are the top inside-outside duos:

1. North Carolina: Ty Lawson, Tyler Hansbrough
2. Connecticut: A.J. Price, Jeff Adrien
3. Arizona State: James Harden, Jeff Pendergraph
4. Oklahoma: Willie Warren, Blake Griffin
5. USC: DeMar DeRozan, Taj Gibson
6. Notre Dame: Kyle McAlarney, Luke Harangody
7. Gonzaga: Jeremy Pargo, Josh Heytvelt
8. Saint Mary’s: Patty Mills, Diamon Simpson
9. Tennessee: Scotty Hopson, Tyler Smith
10. Pittsburgh: Levance Fields, DeJuan Blair
11. Clemson: K.C. Rivers, Trevor Booker
12. Memphis: Tyreke Evans, Robert Dozier
13. Syracuse: Jonny Flynn, Arinze Onuaku
14. Texas: A.J. Abrams, Damion James
15. San Diego: Brandon Johnson, Gyno Pomare

Others to Watch:

Marquette: Jerel McNeal, Lazar Hayward
Baylor: Curtis Jerrells, Kevin Rogers
Alabama: Ronald Steele, Jamychal Green
Michigan State: Kalin Lucas, Raymar Morgan
Duke: Greg Paulus, Kyle Singler
