Players to watch in the NCAA Tournament

For the casual fan, the extent of the college hoops they watch are games involving the team they follow, the big matchups in the conference that the team they follow plays in, the nationally televised games on ESPN and CBS that are played when they have nothing else to do, and Sportscenter highlights.

That means that just about anyone that is even remotely considered a sports fan can probably rattle off to you names like Jared Sullinger, Kemba Walker, Jimmer Fredette, and Nolan Smith.

That’s where we come in.

You see, we watch way too much hoops here at Beyond the Arc, and in an effort to help you get a better feel for some of the teams in the tournament, we compiled a list of players to watch and why you need to watch. They aren’t necessarily the best players in the country, but they are some of the most important.
