What makes a great point guard? Scoring? Passing? Defense? Leadership? All of the above?
We have lots of opinions on the matter, but we want to hear from you. So we compiled a list of some of the best floor generals in D1 Men's College Basketball and now we'll leave it up to a vote. So vote for the player you think deserves the title "Best Point Guard in College Basketball" and share with friends so they can vote as well. The poll closes Monday at noon eastern, so be sure to get your vote in on time. Feel free to hit us up on twitter @HEROSportsNews to let us know why you voted the way you did.
Kay Felder – Oakland
Felder, a junior from Detroit, leads the nation in assists (8.7 per game) and is second in scoring (25.7). He also averages two steals and has recorded eight double-doubles. Felder hasn't scored less than 20 points all season and rarely comes off the court, averaging 37.6 minutes per contest.
Monté Morris – Iowa State
Monte Morris went from a good player as a sophomore in 2014-15 to an elite player this season. The junior can do everything. From distributing (6.8 assists) and efficient scoring (15.2 points, 54 percent shooting) to pickpocketing (2.1 steals), Morris powers the Cyclones. He averages a whopping 1.3 steals for every one foul and just 3.1 combined fouls and turnovers in 37 minutes per game.
Lester Medford – Baylor
The former JUCO transfer has blossomed into a tremendous distributor for the Bears. He ranks in the top 25 nationally in assists (7.3), steals (2.2) and assist-to-turnover ratio (3.31). Medford only averages 8.8 points but scores when needed, including a 16-point performance in their win over Iowa State on Jan. 9.
Jordan Johnson – Milwaukee
It didn't take long for Jordan Johnson to flourish in the Horizon League. After transferring from John Wood Community College (Quincy, Ill.), the Illinois native ranks second nationally with 7.9 assists per game while averaging 12 points and 3.2 rebounds. Johnson's 3.36 assist-to-turnover ratio ranks in the nation's top 20 and he just tied a career-high with 25 points in Milwaukee's 83-30 win over Detroit on Jan. 23.
Jaaron Simmons – Ohio
Simmons returned to his home state after one season at Houston it appears to have been a good decision. The Dayton native averages 7.3 assists and 14.7 points in 35 minutes per game for the Bobcats. His turnover rate is too high (5.2 per 40 minutes) but that hasn't stopped him from becoming a great facilitator.
Bryant McIntosh – Northwestern
After impressing as a true freshman last season, Bryant McIntosh is now one of the best players in the Big Ten. He has remained an efficient scorer (15.1 points per game) while ranking eighth nationally with seven assists per game. His 28-point, five-assist performance in Northwestern's win over Wisconsin on Jan. 12 was his best of the season.
Mike Gesell – Iowa
Fran McCaffery has built a very well-balanced team, one that functions perfectly with Mike Gesell at point guard. The senior guard doesn't score much (8.8 points per game) but he averages 6.9 assists per game while adding 3.6 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 30 minutes per game. His 3.2 assist-to-turnover ratio ranks 24th nationally.
Tra'Deon Hollins – Omaha
Tra’Deon Hollins averages 4.3 steals per game. The next closest player, Providence’s Kris Dunn, sits at 2.9. Hollins, one of the best thieves in college basketball history, also averages 11.5 points, six assists and 4.3 rebounds. The Omaha native has reached five steals nine times this season.
Kris Dunn – Providence
Kris Dunn’s decision to return for his junior season is paying huge dividends for the Friars. The do-it-all 6-4, 220-pound point guard, who can play anywhere on the court, is having an All-American season, averaging 17 points, 7.1 assists and 2.9 steals per contest.
Yogi Ferrell – Indiana
Yogi Ferrell keeps the scorer's table busy. The senior guard has scored less than 10 points just twice, recorded fewer than five assists three times and shoots 45 percent from three-point land. He averages 17.1 points, 6.1 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game for the tourney-bound Hoosiers.
Joe Rahon – St. Mary's
Rahon, who sat out last season after transferring from Boston College, is making a smooth transition with the Gaels. He leads the WCC in assists with 6.7 per game and ranks eighth nationally with a 4.3 assist-to-turnover ratio. Rahon averages just 3.1 combined turnovers and fouls in 35 minutes.
Dallas Moore – North Florida
Dallas Moore is the player who keeps opposing coaches up at night. The Ospreys’ point guard has elevated his game to a different level this season, posting averages of 20.2 points, 5.8 assists and 4.3 rebounds. He has recorded six games of 20 points, five assists and three rebounds during their 17-6 start.
Justin Robinson – Monmouth
As Monmouth’s bench continues to make headlines, Hawks’ guard Justin Robinson keeps producing. The junior from Lake Katrine, N.Y., leads Monmouth in scoring (20.6 per game), assists (3.5), steals (2.1) and three-point shooting (43 percent).
Melo Trimble – Maryland
Melo Trimble’s scoring, rebounding and three-point numbers are slightly down from his sensational freshman season but the Terps’ floor leader is still playing at a high level. He averages 14.5 points, 5.6 assists and 1.3 per game while only committing 1.5 fouls.
