Hoops - Scoring leaders and team success

Interesting comment about national hoops scoring leaders and their team's ability to reach post-season success:

History reveals the consequences of too little balance. In the last three decades, two players among the top 10 scorers in the nation have reached the Final Four. Georgia Tech's Dennis Scott, whose 27.7 average was ninth in 1990, lost a national semifinal. And Indiana State's Larry Bird, second with a 28.6 average in 1979, lost in the national title game to Heathcote's Michigan State Spartans.

Now that's some select company. Cool for 3D!!
