NCAA Basketball has a lot of pride and prestige in its history. Since there are so many great players and great teams, I have decided to compile a list that featured the best players per position that have played in the last decade of college basketball (2004-2013). This article will feature the 10 best shooting guards in the last decade. With that being said, this list was extremely tough and there were a lot of awesome players that didn’t make the cut.
First, lets start off with the honorable mentions.
Jeremy Lamb - Connecticut
Jeremy Lamb was one of the most promising prosecpts for the UConn Huskies. He helped win a title with Kemba Walker and Shabazz Napier in 20011. One year later he was an All Big East First Team selection.

Curry was an awesome scorer who could get into the lane and shoot the ball. He routinely scored thirty point games and even had a few forty point games for the Cowboys. He even made the All Big 12 team.
Brandon Rush – Kansas
In the year 2008, Rush won a National Championship, was Third Team All American and was named the BIg 12 Tournament MVP.
