College Basketball's Best Players
Rising Star: Villanova Guard Phil Booth
The sophomore from Baltimore hit the second-biggest shot of the game for Villanova (it was, admittedly, a very distant second).
Rising Star: North Carolina Guard Joel Berry
Steady and efficient, if not flashy, Berry could be a key tonight against Villanova. The sophomore point guard has recorded 18 assists and just one turnover in his last two games.
Rising Star: Syracuse Forward Tyler Lydon
In the second half on Sunday, Lydon nailed a three off a pick-and-pop when his defender stayed with gunner Trevor Cooney, and swished a very deep three to cut the deficit to 58-55.
Rising Star: Oklahoma Forward Khadeem Lattin
The Oklahoma Sooners’ strength is their perimeter shooting, but their secret weapon is 6’9” forward Khadeem Lattin
Rising Star: Seton Hall Guard Isaiah Whitehead
The sophomore scored 70 points in three days—and added 19 rebounds and 17 assists—to lead Seton Hall to its first Big East title since 1993.
Rising Star: Wisconsin Forward Ethan Happ
Ethan Happ, now a redshirt freshman, is a starter for Wisconsin averaging 11.9 points, 7.8 rebounds, and a Big Ten-leading 1.8 steals.
Wisconsin's Future In Good Hands With Bronson Koenig
Three-year starter Traevon Jackson is graduating, but Wisconsin’s point guard spot is in good hands. When Jackson broke his foot in January, sophomore Bronson Koenig replaced him in the starting lineup and played well.
