After watching a week of college basketball, it struck me how few teams have two legitimate big men worth playing together. The game has evolved so much that we’re seeing a different style of play. The trend is to trade bigs for guards, and it’s hard to blame the coaches for doing so. Start rattling off the list of the country's elite frontcourts. You may not need both hands.

I started wondering which programs had actually recruited two quality big men this year and set out to come up with a top 10 list. Small forwards were intentionally left off to emphasize true interior players, so this isn't a list of the 10 best frontcourt classes. It's a rundown of the best post pairings.

It should come as no surprise that a year after losing the bulk of its frontcourt to the NBA draft, UNC targeted size and didn’t need to look far to fulfill Roy Williams' wish list.
