NEW YORK--Sports Illustrated has conducted a poll of college basketball players, and in no surprise to Arizona partisans, senior forward Hassan Adams was named the 'Scariest Dunker' in the league. That note and more appear in this week's issue of the magazine.

To get the skinny on who’s who in the college game, SI went to the best source: the players.


In each of the traditional power conferences?-ACC, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten, Pac-10 and SEC?-one player was selected from each team to cast votes within his conference in 15 categories. (First-year Big East schools were not included because they had yet to play every team in the conference.)


The voters were granted anonymity and could not vote for their own coaches or teammates.
Adams received more dunk votes than any other league player, garnering 50 percent of the vote. Here's the anonymous quote about Arizona's high-flying Adams, who has been invited to participate in national annual slam dunk competition as part of the hoopla surrounding the Final Four:

“If it’s a fast break and you’re on that side with him, they are going to throw it up in the air. Most of the time you won’t be able to jump and get the ball, so you’d better just move out of the way or you’re going to be on SportsCenter.”
