Laettner, Hurley, K, Named To All-Time NCAA Team By Sportsline

Christian Laettner, Bobby Hurley, and Coach K were named to the All-Time NCAA Tourney team by CBS Sportsline. Coach K coached the second team (John Wooden understandably coached the first) Some of the selections were, frankly, goofy. How could you put Bill Walton ahead of Lew Alcindor (now known as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar)? And Corliss Williamson? Ahead of Patrick Ewing? Grant Hill? David Thompson? If he's one of the top 12, why not Tommy Burleson? Where's Magic, where's Bird? Most of these guys got to the finals twice, but if that's the standard, then Bill Russell and K.C. Jones should never have been left off. Miles Simon made this list and Bill Russell didn't?
