The first games of the 2018-19 college basketball season are less than a month away. We scoured every team's roster to look for the best names in the sport and present to you the All-Name Team for the upcoming season, just like we did before the start of the college football season.

There were many obvious candidates — and plenty of deserving ones who were unfortunately left out — when reading all 353 updated rosters.

Some names have basketball ties, with words like "net," "stat," "ball," and "trap" found in players' last names. For a sport that's largely based around running and jumping, players with last names like Quickley, Lightfoot and Scurry were must-adds.

Then other players simply just have awesome names.

Here are the best names in college basketball, sorted by various categories.
