Two teams remain for the title of the best college basketball team that never was. A Kentucky squad that features John Wall and Anthony Davis meets Texas' Kevin Durant and LaMarcus Aldridge.
Only four of college basketball's best would-be teams remain. John Wall and Kentucky face Russell Westbrook's UCLA squad. Jabari Parker and Duke meet Kevin Durant's Texas team. Cast your vote!
After 10 years of one-and-done NBA draft prospects, we thought about a world where players stayed in college for three or four years. The would-be rosters are pretty daunting. You pick the best.
Imagine Aldridge and Durant at Texas

Top-15 prospect Jarrett Allen waved off college basketball's traditional powers to remain in Austin. He could become the next great Longhorn big man.
Before the NBA draft deadline, Texas had a strong roster and a solid spot in Joe Lunardi's NCAA tournament forecast. Suddenly things don't look as good for Shaka Smart. Or Syracuse's Jim Boeheim.
Kansas-Kentucky is not only the headliner of the Big 12/SEC Challenge but arguably the most intriguing. We rank all the games in the January event.
