I’ll put my NCAA Tournament starting five up against any starting five in college basketball. #MYUFAstarting5
After watching every single game so far in the 2021 NCAA Tournament I decided to put together my starting five players that I believe could beat any other starting five in college basketball.
The Undraftedfreeagent.com 2021 March Madness starting 5:
- Evan Mobley (USC) – Centre – 7’0 Murrieta, CA.
The freshman for USC will be a lottery pick in the 2021 NBA draft and has been dominant all season for the Trojans. He’s averaging 16.5 points per game with 8.8 rebounds. The McDonald’s All-American has lived up to all the hype and more. He’s the most dynamic and explosive big man in college hoops. Late in a game with the ball in his hand, I’m not sure there is a player in the country who could defend his sky hook or fade away jumper.
- Jalen Suggs (Gonzaga) – Guard – 6’4 West St. Paul, MN.
Like Mobley, Suggs is a freshman sensation who will be a lottery pick and was also a McDonald’s All-American. Suggs is the best passer in college basketball and is an explosive athlete who also had offers to play QB for Ohio State, Georgia, Iowa and more. He’s averaging 14.4 points per game along with 5.3 rebounds and can take over a game in a flash.
- Max Abmas (Oral Roberts) – Guard – 6’1 Rockwall, TX.
Abmas was the leading scorer in college basketball this season with 24.5 points per game. The sophomore guard showed the ability to take over a game at will which we saw all throughout the Summit League tournament (they won as the No.4 seed) as well as in the upsets over Ohio State and Florida. I know there are 30 or 40 guys who are longer or more athletic but they can’t score at will like “Mid-Court Max.”
- Davion Mitchell (Baylor) – Guard – 6’2 Hinesville, GA.
Mitchell is probably the best defensive guard in the country. He just smothers and embarrasses opponents. The All-American and All-Big 12 junior guard can also score if needed averaging 14.1 points per game this season. I’d have Mitchell as my team captain in hopes his toughness rubs off on the rest of the team.
- Corey Kispert (Gonzaga) Forward – 6’7 Edmonds, WA.
Kispert was a unanimous first team All-American after leading the No.1 offence in the country in scoring with 19.2 points per game. Kispert will also be a high first round pick in the NBA draft and is perhaps the best pure shooter in college hoops this season. His on court experience and swagger are key to the Zags perfect season.
