All eyes have turned to Dante Exum, the Australian point guard who is projecting as a top-10 pick whenever he enters the NBA Draft. At the Nike Hoop Summit he helped the World team win by scoring 16 points. The rumor is that he's currently deciding between Indiana, Louisville, St. Mary's, and Louisiana State.
Here are his highlights from this weekend:
Watching Australian players enter the NCAA and become stars isn't anything unusual, so hopefully Exum will stick around long enough to make his mark. Plenty of other star foreign players take routes to the NBA which don't include American colleges at all.
Regardless, it got me wondering who this year's All Australian team would have been. Here's mine.
Matthew Dellavedova, Senior, St. Mary's (15.8 ppg, 6.4 apg, 117.3 oRtg)
Brock Motum, Senior, Washington State (18.7 ppg, 6.3 rpg, 104.4 oRtg)
Ryan Broekhoff, Senior, Valparaiso (15.7 ppg, 7.3 rpg, 119.9 oRtg)
Cody Ellis, Senior, St. Louis (10.1 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 102.4 oRtg)
Hugh Greenwood, Sophomore, New Mexico (7.0 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 104.1 oRtg)
