Wins, not stats, are the ultimate metric

A colleague of mine asked me recently whether it was better for a college team to have a true "superstar" or just a collection of really good players.

The answer is easy: there is no right answer.

The best college teams are the teams that play the best together, and star players are usually elevated by winning rather than by individual performances.

How many superstars have carried their teams to the national championship, or even the Final Four?
