This article focuses on various college basketball teams in the U.S. The Texas University college basketball team's sophomore Daniel Gibson is the most gifted player any team is using at the point, but he still is so indecisive it is inaccurate to call him a point guard. Coach Rick Barnes wants Gibson to be more aggressive on offense. Memphis University team's coach John Callpari always has coached his teams to play solid position defense and execute precisely in the halfcourt offense. But he's making better use of his four outstanding wing athletes by using full-court pressure and spreading the court on offense this season.
