Gunner Pool Draft Results

So we held out annual Gunner Draft tonight, and, a lot like our brackets before the tourney starts, everyone thinks they have the best squad.

Remember, since the only category that counts is points scored, in this type of draft you want a guy who will:

  1. Score a lot of points
  2. Play a lot of games

So having the sixth man on the championship team is many times better than having the highest scoring guy on a one-and-done team.

With that said, here's the first round.

  1. Marcus Morris - Kansas
  2. Nolan Smith - Duke
  3. Kemba Walker - UConn
  4. Jimmer Fredette - BYU
  5. Jared Sullinger - OSU
  6. Kyle Singler - Duke
  7. Markieff Morris - KU
  8. Ben Hansbrough - Notre Dame

And I guess fitting for someone who spends so much time on this site, I ended up with four Big 12 players: Jordan Hamilton, Jacob Pullen, Tyshawn Taylor and Gary Johnson. In total, 14 Big 12ers were taken.

Without further ado, after The Jump, see how our draft fared. If there's someone we missed, let us know, or just vote on who you think drafted the best team.
