2008-09 College Basketball All-Headband Team

Daniel DamicoCorrespondent INovember 30, 2008

A couple years ago, the headband was everywhere in college basketball.  Along with high socks and sleeveless t-shirts, in it's time, the headband was a pretty big deal. 

Carmelo Anthony and Hakeem Warrick lead the headband-ed Oragemen to the national championship in 2003 over Kansas.  The Florida Gators won back-to-back titles in 2006 and 2007 with a headband-ed Corey Brewer winning the 2007 Final Four MOP.

Sadly, the headband is not as popular with the kids these days and we are seeing fewer and fewer.  There is, however, a few dedicated top-tier players who sweat enough on the face and head-area to warrant a headband. 

So I decided that the few that still rock the headband, need a little love.

I know the anticipation is almost too much to handle and you might be sweating just a little bit.  Grab yourself a headband, wipe off the forehead and meet the team of players just like you, expect they are much better at basketball.

Here is my All-Headband Team:

Jonny Flynn, Syracuse

Tyrese Rice, Boston College

Tyler Smith, Tennessee

Paul Harris, Syracuse

Wayne Chism, Tennessee
