20 Players That Have Benefited Most from 2012 NCAA Tournament

This NCAA tournament is one unlike any other that has preceded it. 

Never before have we seen two two-seeds go down in the same round, on the same day. Never have we had four different teams from one single state make it to the Sweet 16. 

Except, it's not always about the team accolades, it's also about individuals. 

Now, I'm not talking about the big name players we already expected to do well in these games, I'm talking about the guys that weren't necessarily big names before the tournament but impressed when they had their chances. 

They could have played four games by now or they could have lost in the Round of 64, but one way or another, these guys made a name for themselves, making their time on the court worth it in the long run.

Here are 20 guys who have made the most out of their time in the tournament

Side note: Guys that gained massive amounts of attention (Anthony Davis, Thomas Robinson, Draymond Green, etc.) were not considered for this slideshow because their popularity is not in the same level of the ones who made the list.
