    Will Spradling is a senior guard who just hit his 1,000th career point. His future plans include getting married this August—sorry ladies.

    The senior point guard leads the team in points, assists and minutes played, and was a key part of the team's Big East Tournament Championship. He has only missed 5 minutes of game time since December with an average of 39.9 minutes played per game. That is some pretty impressive endurance!

    10. Matt Costello – Michigan State

    Matt is a 6’9” sophomore for the Spartans. He is playing a bigger roll and he has seen increased minutes from his freshman year. He could be an X-factor for the Big Ten Tournament Champs.

    7. Kaleb Tarczewski - Arizona


    The 7 foot Sophomore Center has the potential to be a first round draft pick as early as 2015. He was a top high school prospect, and was an Honorable Mention Pac-12 Freshman Team selection in 2013.

    6. Doug McDermott – Creighton


    Doug could have declared for the NBA draft after his Junior year, but instead he came back to help his Dad’s team transition from the Missouri Valley Conference to the Big East. Doug is actually a walk-on during his senior year, after he gave up his Scholarship for one his teammate, Grant Gibbs. Doug has scored 3,000+ career points and he will continue to climb up the Top 5 All-Time Scoring list during the tournament.

    5. Aaron White – Iowa

    Aaron White is quite possible the hottest ginger that is also good at basketball. He is the only player in the nation to boast over a 50% field goal percentage along with being over an 80% free throw shooter.

    4. Kevin Pangos – Gonzaga

    Kevin is a Junior point guard from Ontario, Canada. He shares a school record for the most 3 pointers made in a game at 9. Pretty good, eh?

    3. Matt Thomas – Iowa State

    Nirmalendu Majumdar/Ames Tribune / Via

    Matt Thomas is only a Freshman at ISU, and not the biggest star on the team. However, look for him to hit some big 3’s in the tournament. He had some inconsistency throughout the year when he struggled with his confidence, but hopefully making this list will give him a confidence boost!

    2. Ron Baker - Wichita State

    Jeff Roberson/AP / Via

    Ron Baker is a key part of Wichita State’s balanced attack that has led them to an undefeated season leading into the 2014 NCAA Tournament and a Final Four Appearance in 2013. Fun Fact: Ron Baker Day was celebrated in his hometown for the first time on March 28th, 2013.

    1. Aaron Craft - Ohio State

    ESPN / Via

    Aaron Craft is a player you either love, or love to hate. This "Man of Steal" is a rosy-cheeked, aggressive defender that leads the team in career steals and assists. He was even named the 2014 Big 10 Defensive Player of the Year. If basketball doesn't become a part of Craft’s long-term plan, at least he will be able to fall back on his pre-med major. Craft is pretty smart with a 3.92 GPA and he is a three time Academic All-American too!
