Last year, Kemba Walker put on a show in the NCAA tournament, leading the Connecticut Huskies to the Final Four and eventually a championship. Walker is now in the NBA with the Charlotte Bobcats, but these players could put on a show similar to that of Walker last year.
Walker averaged 23.5 points and 5.7 assists per game in the 2011 NCAA tournament. He single-handedly led his team through March, winning the Big East tournament and the Big Dance. The team finished the year on an 11-game win streak in tournament play, thanks to Walker.
In 2012, we're looking for a new player to lead his team to this kind of magical run. There are several candidates to keep an eye on.
What we're looking for in a candidate is the type of player who can change the game. The type of player who can single-handedly take over a game. The type of player who is getting it done without being surrounded by a team of stars.
These are the players who could be the next Kemba Walker.
