Entering a season loaded with talented big men, here are my top-10 frontcourts for 2006-07, ranked on the basis of their overall strength. Note that not every player listed as a small forward was considered part of a frontcourt -- only those who don't double as guards. Ohio State, meanwhile, didn't crack the top 10 because of the uncertain injury situation to blue-chip center Greg Oden.
Headliners: Jeff Adrien (left), Hasheem Thabeet, Stanley Robinson, Curtis Kelly
Adrien was relegated to role-player status behind Hilton Armstrong and Josh Boone in 2005-06, but is ready to have a breakout season. The recent announcement that the 7-foot-3 Thabeet is eligible is huge for the Huskies; he's a rare specimen whom they believe could be one of the nation's top shot-blockers by the time the Big East season arrives
