The All-Christmas Team

Since it’s the holiday season, no one really wants to do a lot of work, do they? We thought not, so instead we are rolling out our all Christmas team. The All-Christmas team features college basketball players past and present whose first or last names invoke something involving the holiday season. And sure, we may have to stretch things a bit, but we’ll get there.

G: Dionte Christmas – Temple

Christmas is the captain of our team, obviously. In four years at Temple he averaged 15.7 pts and 4.4 rebs per game

G: Matt Carroll – Notre Dame

Carroll averaged just under 14 ppg in his Notre Dame career. When he graduated, he finished as the school’s 6th highest leading scorer.

G: (Joy to the) World B. Free – Guilford College

I partly was getting too lazy to look up more names, as this was actually the last one I did, but mostly I wanted to get one of the best names in athletics history on here. In 15 NBA seasons, World B Free averaged 20.3 ppg.

F: David Noel – North Carolina

Noel finished his college career with just under 900 pts, and was 2nd team all ACC and all-defensive ACC in his Senior season.

C: (Christmas) Tree Rollins – Clemson

After a storied career at Clemson, Tree played 14 years in the NBA with Atlanta, Cleveland, Houston and Orlando. He averaged just over 5 ppg, but did average over 2 blocks per game.

    Perhaps we can anticipate some piece on the many obscure “Feisty Roman Catholic Basketball Schools” in the Northeast like I mentioned in a previous post? The rivalries are huge amongst each other, but also the local public schools have a huge hatred of them and vice versa. Here you can go beyond the notable Catholic suspects with college championship traditions in local rivalries like Temple versus Villanova, Georgetown versus Maryland, and Seton Hall versus Rutgers. East Coast constipation epidemic too of course boo-yah! :p

    No Jrue Holiday? No Brian Rudolph? Fail.
