There are a lot of quality players in college basketball these days who came from other countries to chase their dreams of playing elite level basketball and perhaps the NBA. Here are the best from the 6 “major conferences” in the NCAA.
We’ll also post about the other conferences and in many cases the best players are playing for schools like Gonzaga and St. Mary’s who squared off on ESPN last night in the WCC Final. At any given time during that game there were seven
international guys on the floor at once.
Later in March we will also be releasing our International Player of the Year and our All-International Team, stay tuned.
