Handing out the Hardware: Best players of the exhibition season

The start of the regular season means that it is time to recognize the best players from college basketball’s exhibition season. HoopsHD’s Jon Teitel has reviewed all of the numbers and is ready to announce his picks for the 6 best players from each tier of the sport based on their best games from the past month. Players are listed in a traditional 5-position lineup (G-G-F-F-C) plus a 6th man off the bench (with 1 exception). If you think that he has overlooked anyone then feel free to tweet us your comments.
