If Drummond lives up to the hype as a young Amare or Dwight, Uconn will easily have the best front court. Those guys were putting up double doubles as rookies in the NBA so if Drummond is really in that class, he will be scary in college.

Rankings mean nothing until who is #1 in the end. Let the haters/doubters doubt/hate

I would put our front court against anyone in the country.

The rankings are understandable when you look at both sides of the ball. All 3 ahead of UConn have a go-to scorer type. UConn should have one or two go-to guys down low on offense this year but will have to prove it.
Either way I feel like UConn would shut down all of those three. Just wish we had an early test.

I think UNC has the best frontcourt in the nation, but they can't touch Lamb/Napier with their guard play.

Yea, UNC's front court has to be regarded as the best right now. Who knows how it will turn out down the road. Their back court isn't too shabby either. I really like Marshall and think he is by far their most important player. Bullock and Hairston were regarded in HS as two of the best shooters in their class so if they can meet those expectations and stay healthy, they will have an unbelievably balanced and well put together team.

I'm going to have to agree with this post...they have 5-7 future NBA players on their team right now.

Jesus, people on here have no sense of objectivity.

UConn's frontcourt has the potential to be the best, but there's no way you can rank them ahead of UNC right now, at least before seeing how Drummond adjusts. And ranking Ohio State (Sullinger was the best big man in the country as a frosh) and Kentucky (Jones>Oriakhi based on stats, Davis=Drummond) ahead of UConn is justifiable as well.

There's a chance UConn's frontcourt ends up being higher than 4 (and maybe even #1), but it's not an unreasonable rankings preseason.

UConn's frontcourt definitely isn't as offensively skilled as UNC's and probably not as skilled as UK's and OSU's, but it's the most physical frontcourt in the country. In my mind, that's the most important characteristic a frontcourt should possess. UConn's got plenty of firepower from the wing, so I want to see the 4 and 5 dominate the boards and I think AO and AD will do so like no other tandem in the country.

UCONN will have the best front court by end of the season. That's all it matters.
Correct, they do not have the best frontcourt right now. AD (or DD and MB) haven't played a college game yet.

Neither has the entire UK frontcourt neither has that guy on UNC.

Are they seriously suggesting that Jared Sullinger and David Lighty combined are better than AO, AD, RS, and DD combined?
