Here are five guards--all comfortably under six feet--who, like Nate Robinson, still loom large
JEREL BLASSINGAME,5'10" UNLV The Runnin' Rebels' sparkplug won't give an inch to foes, even USC's 6' 8" Nick Curtis.
KEYDREN CLARK, 5'9" SAINT PETER'S The nation's top scorer in 2003--04, "Kee-Kee" is pumping in 24.8 points a game for the Peacocks this season.
DREW LAVENDER, 5'7" Oklahoma The skittering Sooner excels at seeing the court, and it's a bad idea to foul him: He's a 92.9% shooter from the line.
CARLDELL JOHNSON,5'10" Alabama-Birmingham "Squeaky" is the catalyst for the Blazers' frenzied attack, averaging 5.3 assists and 2.8 steals.
JONATHAN BLUITT, 5'9" ORAL ROBERTS The feisty playmaker (above, left) for the 5--0 Golden Eagles sank two clutch treys to help beat Loyola-Chicago.
