Group Rankings: Top 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. Kansas: Sherron Collins, Cole Aldrich
2. Kentucky: John Wall, Patrick Patterson
3. Texas: Avery Bradley, Damion James
4. Purdue: E'Twaun Moore, Robbie Hummel
5. Butler: Gordon Hayward, Matt Howard
6. Michigan: Manny Harris, DeShawn Sims
7. Virginia Tech: Malcolm Delaney, Jeff Allen
8. Connecticut: Kemba Walker, Stanley Robinson
9. Oklahoma: Willie Warren, Keith "Tiny" Gallon
10. Georgia Tech: Iman Shumpert, Derrick Favors
11. Duke: Jon Scheyer, Kyle Singler
12. Arkansas: Courtney Fortson, Michael Washington
13. Michigan State: Kalin Lucas, Raymar Morgan
14. Notre Dame: Tory Jackson, Luke Harangody
15. Tulsa: Ben Uzoh, Jerome Jordan
