Sometimes, the big stars don't end up being the heroes in big games.
Occasionally, a less-than-likely player steps up and has the game of a lifetime.
In 2009, on a team that featured Ty Lawson and Tyler Hansbrough, Wayne Ellington stepped up in both the national semifinal game and the title game, winning the Final Four's Most Outstanding Player award.
For Kentucky, Terrence Jones might be that unexpected hero.
Don't get me wrong, Jones is no second-tier player on the Wildcats roster.
But with all of the attention that Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist have received this year and during the tournament, it might be a surprise for Jones to lead the way if UK wins it all.
On the other side, Elijah Johnson could be that surprising star for Kansas.
He is already having a good tournament, averaging 13.4 PPG and five RPG.
Johnson was a key ingredient to the Jayhawks' success against Ohio State, scoring 13 points and grabbing 10 rebounds.
