Post details: Sporting News College Basketball Athlete of the Decade

Sep 24 '09

Our choices for seven athletes of the decade--one in each sport we cover--sparked some intense debate. Love him or hate him, Tyler Hansbrough was the decade's most influential player. He's SN's pick, over former Blue Devils point guard Jason Williams.

Sporting News says:

It may well be true that there wasn't a single moment of Hansbrough's college career when he was the most talented player on the court. But he was always the most influential. From his first game to his championship finale, Hansbrough was feted far and wide for playing with unwavering effort. Though some rival fans tired of hearing the praise, even they would have to agree: Hansbrough provided four years of education for young players everywhere.

Follow the link to read the rest of the article. There was some good company this decade with Hansbrough, but the Tar Heel takes the final prize.
