    This morning, I was thinking about who the Buffs best 3 players are this year. Not just a "who is your top 3?" type of thing, but based on the major skill sets.

    So, who do you think our top 3 are for each of the following:

    Scoring (jump shots):

    Scoring (in the paint):

    Rebounding:

    Passing:

    Ball Handling:

    Defense (on ball):

    Defense (help):

    I need to think a bit about this, but I'm thinking that Carlon is going to show up in more Top 3s than any of our other guys.

    1. Dre
    2. Carlon
    3. Mayor

    Passing:
    1. Mayor
    2. Carlon
    3. Nate

    Ball Handling:
    1. Nate
    2. Ski
    3. Mayor

    Defense (on ball):
    1. Carlon
    2. Chen
    3. Adams

    Defense (help):
    1. Dre
    2. Carlon

    Curious as to your ball handling pick. Is it who handles the ball the most?

    The way I think of it is who do I feel most comfortable with dribbling the ball if the other team is trapping/pressing or who I think is most capable of taking someone off the dribble through traffic without getting his pocket picked.

    I thought about Chen and even Dre for that. Austin is also damn good for his position.

    Ive had a lot of debate with people over the top 3 on the team and i think its definitly Dinwiddie, Carlon and Dre, the only other argument i think could maybe be made for Ski or Dufault but thats it really

    Cain has the potential to go to the top of that list considering how much we need a big to spell Austin and Dre.

    I'm back on the Nate bandwagon. **** it. I'm gonna drive the thing.

    Next home game, I'm gonna be in your ear with, "AUSSIE, AUSSIE, AUSSIE, OI, OI, OI!" for 2 hours.

    you got it, but these are all guards and TB is gonna put in a big either after ski or before ski like the other game when 2 minutes into the game dufault had 2 turnovers....

    And I left off Carlon because of his early season struggles. If I could forget that and just focus on the past 5 or 6 games, he'd be way up there.

    It's simple...we got two scorers in Brown & Dinwiddle plus a rebounding machine in Roberson. That should be enough although I would love to see one more rebounder emerge besides Roberson.

    Agree, would expect SHT to get more minutes - my three were off my perceived impact so far. I hope to see Cain continue to improve as well.

    Top three

    Scoring Outside
    1 Carlon
    2 Mayor
    3 Dufault but he never shoots for some reason

    Scoring Inside
    1. Dufault developed a post game
    2. Dinwiddie think of all his drives in transition where he either lays it in or gets to the line
    3. Flydre on O boards and dump off passes alone

    Rebounding
    1 Flydre
    2. No one
    3. No one

    Ball handling
    1. Ski on pure talent he is our best
    2. Mayor never turns it over
    3. Nate u see him **** his pants when Wroten took one step towards him in the second half

    Passing
    1. Ski lethal when driving
    2. Nate
    3. Mayor

    On Ball D
    1. Adams
    2. Nate
    3. Chen

    Carlon gives up way too many points to be considered a good defender

    Help D
    1. Flydre
    2. Nate
    3. I guess dufault

    Carlon over helps letting his man get many uncontested threes

    Although it ay seem as tho i am being harsh on carlon i do believe he is our best player because there is no one in the pac 12 that can guard him
