NCAA Basketball Tournament: Top 65 Players

    
March 14th, 2010
Based loosely on the quarterly Collegehoops.net Top 100, I rank the 65 best players in the 2010 NCAA Tournament.  This is not a fantasy stats ranking, although many of the players listed put up monster numbers. This is also not an evaluation based on pro talent-level, but a ranking of the best players right now. This was such a tough list to narrow down, there were about 20 other guys not listed who seemed awfully close.

   

Let the debates begin..  

 

*The list will be updated if a player on a projected team included here doesn't make it..
