CHICAGO -- We've been saying for months that 2003 was the year of the point guard, and on Wednesday several point prospects in the Chicago pre-draft camp showed us why.

The crop of point guards here might be the best ever, despite a eight major no-shows -- T. J. Ford, Kirk Hinrich, Luke Ridnour, Reece Gaines, Leandrinho Barbosa, Marcus Banks, Chris Thomas and Zoran Planinic.

Boston College guard Troy Bell can rebound as well as score.
Big East player of the Year and second team All-American Troy Bell led the way Wednesday, scoring 17 points, handing out seven assists and registering a tournament-high four steals in 20 minutes. His play drew rave reviews from the crowd.
