The Next 25: Players Close to the Top 100

    
November 30th, 2011

With over 3,000 players, Division I basketball is loaded with talent. The gap between player 100 and 125 is slim, and the gap between player 500 and 600 is even slimmer. Here are the 25 players who came closest to making the CHN Top 100 Player Ranking.  All are just a few good weeks away from making the Top 100, or just a few bad weeks away from being surpassed by unlisted stars.

The CHN Top 100 ranking is based on the following four criteria:  A) Performance/accomplishments, B) Skill/talent, C) Pro potential, D) Intangible impact to team. Keep in mind that all things being equal, a sophomore of equal worth to a team than a senior would be ranked higher due to their future growth potential.
