1. Trey Burke (Michigan)- Burke was just named the National Player of the Year. He willed his team to victory against Kansas, by hitting a three to tie the game as time expired. Along with his scoring he is also averaging 8 apg.
2. Russ Smith (Louisville)- There is no quicker player from end to end that Smith, he can drive to the hoop 1 on 5 and score if he wants too. Smith is the leading scorer in the NCAA Tournament. He is also a tough defender.
3. Peyton Siva (Louisville)- Rick Pitino has called Siva one of the best leaders and players he has ever coached. Siva is playing his best basketball of his career right now.
4. Tim Hardaway Jr. (Michigan)- Hardaway teams up with Burke to form the best backcourt in the country. He probably has the best mid-range game in the country.
5.Gorgui Dieng (Louisville)- No player has improved from his freshman year until now than Dieng. He is coming off a game in which he scored 0 points but the game just before that against Duke he had a double double.
6. Mitch McGary (Michigan)- McGary has come out of nowhere this NCAA Tournament. He only started 2 games in the regular season, but now he is starting and coming off 3 straight double doubles.
7. Glenn Robinson III (Michigan)- Robinson is averaging 12.8 ppg in the NCAA Tournament ,not bad for a freshman. What makes him tough is he can score in a multiple of ways.
8.Chane Behanan (Louisville)- Behanan does all the dirty work for the Cardinals. Last time out he was 1 rebound away from a double double.
9.Luke Hancock (Louisville)- Without Hancock’s play Louisville is not it the championship game. Against the Shockers he scored 20 points, must of which came late
10.Nik Stauskas (Michigan)- Stauskas will be the best shooter in this game but last time out he had 0 points. That game before that versus Florida though, he hit 6 three pointers.
