MY STARTING FIVE
Stephen Curry – #10 Davidson (guard)
Steph Curry is the one that everyone has been talking about and rightfully so; he has been something special, especially as of late. In his four games in the NCAA’s Curry averaged 32 points per game along with 5.7 three pointers. He took big shot after big shot and until late in the Kansas loss a lot of these shots fell for him. NBA Draftee, anyone?
Scottie Reynolds – #12 Villanova (guard)
In Villanova’s two big wins Reynolds averaged 23 points per contest on over 50% from the field. Don’t forget that the ‘Cats were down big in their first game against Clemson and Reynolds was a big part of the second half comeback.
Tyrone Brazelton – #12 Western Kentucky (guard)
Brazelton scored 79 points during Western Kentcuky’s three tourney games including a career-high 33 points in the Hilltoppers’ exciting 101-99 first round win over favorite Drake. Brazelton stayed consistent during the tournament and contributed in almost every statistical category.
Gyno Pomare – #13 San Diego (forward/center)
Junior player Gyno Pomare had a great tournament with 42 points on a 77% field goal percentage in San Diego’s two games in the NCAA. He was also a big part of containing the #4 seed Connecticut Huskie’s forward line.
Kenny Hasbrouck – #13 Sienna (guard)
Hasbrouck really took charge of Sienna’s big upset over #4 seeded Vanderbilt. In the first round win, he scored 30 points and sank all ten free throws that he shot. He was also a big reason that the Sienna Saints were able to hang tough with Villanova for so long in the second round.
