In basketball you can't win without great guard play. And without a good point guard, things can get ugly, especially in college hoops, with its 35-second shot clock and heavy use of zone defenses. Just look at the point guards on recent national championship winners: Louisville (Peyton Siva), Kentucky (Marquis Teague), UConn (Kemba Walker), Duke (Nolan Smith), North Carolina (Ty Lawson) and Kansas (Mario Chalmers). And every single one of them was drafted.

So which college teams have got the talent at this key position coming into this season?
