College Basketball “Dream Teams” for the 2015-16 Season

Kyle Wiltjer is the only player to be featured on all three "Dream Teams" for the 2015-16 college basketball season. Who else would the writers love to have on their team this season?

The 2015-16 college basketball season will showcase a plethora of talent as it progresses from opening day on November 13th to the National Championship game in Houston in April. There are star players all over the place, which got us thinking about something.

What would it look like if we were able to assemble our own Dream Teams and have them compete against one another? What players would get picked? Who would coach the teams? Who would come out on top? So many questions could be asked, and it would make for one heck of a showcase.

We decided to take that idea and roll with it. Three college basketball writers from around North America to select their Dream Teams for the 2015-16 college basketball season.

The team selection process was rather simple. You can pick any one (1) head coach to lead your team, five starting players, and six bench players from any position to fill out your roster.

After careful deliberation, the three teams were selected. Below, you can find the roster for each of the writers!
