Final Four: Player & Position Ranking

    
April 3rd, 2009
This is a straight-forward list: a ranking of the remaining Final Four players. Most of the teams go about 8 deep now, so the top 8 from each squad is included. Only 3 others players (2 on MSU and 1 on UNC) get meaningful minutes beyond the top 8. Below, the players are ranked by position.

A couple things to note: Look how weak these teams are at small forward, and mostly at power forward as well. On the flip side, look how great all 4 of these teams are at point guard and at center (especially if I swapped Hansbrough as a center in place of Thompson).

1. Ty Lawson - UNC (1)
2. Hasheem Thabeet - UCONN (1)
3. AJ Price - UCONN (2)
