Georgia Tech's Iman Shumpert Ranked 5th Best Defender By SI

Junior Iman Shumpert was ranked the fifth best defender in college basketball this season by Sports Illustrated.

SI On Shumpert:
"Iman Shumpert's status as one of the country's best lockdown defenders became obvious during the ACC tournament, when he gave Maryland's Greivis Vasquez (6-of-12 shooting) and Jon Scheyer (4-of-13) problems. Then in the first round of the NCAA tournament against Oklahoma State, Shumpert held soon-to-be first-rounder James Anderson to 3-of-12 shooting -- and only one of those field goals came within the Cowboys' half-court offense. Shumpert kept the Yellow Jackets in plenty of games in spite of their subpar offense."

I went to Georgia Tech's open scrimmage last weekend and have a writeup here. I think Paul Hewitt's club go as far as Shumpert will take this year.
