If the State of Michigan made a team, would any other state be able to make as good of a line-up?
SF: Dawson/GRIII depending on opponent.
Stauskas, Nix, Harris, McGary, Morgan, Valentine, Dawson/GRIII
Who is coaching? Choose your next words wisely scummer...
without looking at rosters, would have to imagine North Carolina's would be decent.
Also, no McCallum on the team?
Go Bears, Blackhawks, White Sox, and Pioneers.
Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand
Where the heck is Ray McCallum Jr.?

I don't follow college hoops that closely to know many rosters. Going on the rankings, I would say Indiana (IU, Butler, ND) could field a good squad.
I can't really disagree with this. Although I'd think about starting Harris for Appling since you don't have a point guard off the bench.
Edit: If we're including non-MSU or UM players, you gotta have McCallum instead of ... McGary, Morgan, Valentine? It would be a small team if you got rid of McGary/Morgan, but skilled as hell.

Probably California or Texas since they have a bazillion D-1 teams.
I think Florida could put together a decent squad between the Gators and Canes. Indiana and North Carolina, as others have mentioned, would also be solid.
The state of Michigan would run the hell out of other teams. Shooters everywhere and lots of depth in the post and one of the best in the business leading em.
North Carolina would be the one off the top of my head. This would be a likely starting lineup. I don't really want to figure out the bench, but I am sure Duke, NC, and NC State would have no problem creating a good bench.

Solid. I still like the Murder Mitten.
Was actually thinking about this earlier. North Carolina was the first thing that came to mind.
Would be a good game, but Michigan would win.
Indiana's got 4 schools to pick from, and Garrick Sherman plays for one of them!
I may actually start Richard Howell and bring McAdoo off the bench as a sixth man. Howell is an absolute rebounding beast.

Despite popular opinion Alexander does not have amazing motivational speeches before the game. He does not address the team before tip.
Early and Hall from Wichita State combined with the starters at KU and K-State would be a pretty damn good team.
Ohio would be solid with Cincy and OSU (and maybe 1 or 2 from Xavier). New York would also be pretty good if you took Syracuse and gave then St. Johns top two players.
Kentucky would be pretty good with UK, Louisville and Murray State
Calmer than you are
i put a lot of thought to this and came to the conclusion that your mullet is really out of style.
Not saying they'd be better than Michigan or Indiana, but seems to me Kansas should be in the discussion with KU and KSU
Just tell Bacarai to leave his jokes and cheesy rah rah speeches in AA.

Cali, Texas, Florida, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, New York would be the top 8. If I had to handicap it in a round robin
8. Cali (which is CRAZY to think about)
This would be a great event. Get Hollis on this stat!
I love lamp.
I would put GRIII at 3 and Dawson at 4 and THJR on the Bench
I think Ohio should be higher than Kentucky. After doing five minutes of research, I've learned that Ohio and Akron are in first place in the MAC, and Wright State is in second in the Horizon. Add the top player from each of those teams with the top guys from Cincy and OSU and I think they could over come a team made up of KY and Murray State players.
Don't forget about Valpo when picking Indian's team. Valpo has a 6-7 guy averaging 17 and 8, shooting 48% from the field and 46% from 3. Adding him to a team filled with IU and Butler guys could be lethal.
