Fox: Ranking the best inside-outside duos
Connecticut spent parts of last season almost as a one-man show with eventual national player of the year Kemba Walker, but the Huskies didn't become national titlists until others joined in on the fun.
Oriakhi had double-digit rebounds in four of Connecticut's six NCAA tournament games and a double-double in the title game against Butler.
A good inside-outside duo can be the foundation for any elite team, and the teams at the top of our list are no exception. Ohio State, North Carolina, Kentucky and Syracuse are near the top of the preseason polls, and in addition to overall talent, they have something else in common: One great guard and one great big man who work together to form the backbone of the team.
Here are our picks for the top inside-outside duos for this season.
