Players to watch at the Verizon Center
A 7-foot sophomore, Zeller leads the Hoosiers in scoring for the second straight season, averaging 16.8 points per game. Also the Big Ten's leading scorer and rebounder, Zeller is the third of three brothers to appear in the NCAA Tournament, following Notre Dame's Luke and North Carolina's Tyler.
Ah, the one that got away. The DeMatha alum was an All-American and the Big Ten's Defensive Player of the Year this season. He can also score a little, chipping in 13.7 points per contest and nailing the game-winning three pointer against Temple in the round of 32.
Averaging 13.7 points per game, Southerland leads the fourth-seeded Orange into the Verizon Center to face No. 1 seed Indiana.
Another semi-local product, Baltimore native Fair faced off against Indiana's Oladipo in high school, developing a friendly rivalry that will resume Thursday at the Verizon Center.
A onetime transfer from Florida, Kadji will be counted on to shoulder a big load down low against Marquette now that center Reggie Johnson has been ruled out with an injury.
The Hurricanes' offense flows through Larkin, Miami's sophomore point guard. If his name sounds familiar, you might've heard of his dad: Hall of Fame shortstop Barry Larkin.
The Big East Sixth Man of the Year averages 11.3 points off the bench and will look to spark Marquette to an upset over Miami.
A junior guard, Blue averages 14.8 points per game, and has exploded for at least 20 points five times this season, including a season-high 30 against South Florida.
