The All-Name Team will be a reoccurring feature here at Beadlemaniacs. How often it will run remains to be seen, but rest assured, by the time the season is over an All-Name team for each conference will be unveiled. Each edition of the All-Name Team will consists solely of a starting five. Today, we bring you the Big 12’s All-Name Team.
G – Bubu Palo – Iowa State. A lot of freshman seem to dominate these all-name teams so far, and Palo is no exception. He’s from Ames, Iowa, and whoever named him appears to be smarter than your average bear. Right, Bubu? Yeah, I know, I’m ashamed of myself for that awful pun, too.
G – Obi Muonelo – Oklahoma State. This senior out of Edmond, Oklahoma, is averaging 12 points per game so far this season after averaging a career-high 12.7 last season. I don’t care too much about his stats though, because his name is fun to say.
F – Tiny Gallon – Oklahoma. This guy might have the best, and most ironic name in all of college basketball this year. Tiny is not tiny at all — in fact — he is just the opposite, coming in at 6’9″ and 300 pounds.
F – Keegan Hornbuckle – Colorado. Now Hornbuckle just made the list because his name is loaded with awesomeness. Honestly, I read it and got a nice chuckle out of saying it. Good job, Keenan.
C – Dragan Sekelja – Baylor. Thank you, Croatia, for providing what has to be my favorite name on this team. I mean, honestly, the guy’s name is Dragan. Doesn’t get much cooler than that… unless of course he could actually breathe fire, too.
