2011 NCAA Tournament: Top 68 Players

    
March 14th, 2011
With an expanded 68-team 2011 NCAA Tournament, we get an expanded Top 68 Players List  This is not a fantasy stats ranking, although many of the players listed put up monster numbers, nor is this an evaluation based on pro talent-level..

This was such a tough list to narrow down, there were about 20 other guys not listed who seemed awfully close. Some of these guys are national stars (Kemba Walker, Jimmer Fredette, etc), others you may never have heard of (Noah Dahlman or Mike Muscala perhaps?). All 68 will make an impact on the 2011 NCAA Tournament in at least some small way.

 

Let the debates begin..
