From Weber State’s Harold “The Show” Arceneaux to Valparaiso’s Bryce Drew, many of the best Cinderella stories of March Madness have had one transcendent star leading the charge. With this year’s brackets just a week away from being finalized, it’s time to take stock of the potential heroes on the teams hoping to bust those brackets.
Fittingly enough, Drew—now coaching his alma mater—has one of the top candidates on his own roster. The experienced Crusaders are one game away from a Horizon League title, and senior three-point gunner Ryan Broekhoff is a huge reason why.
Read on for more on Broekhoff’s value to Valpo, along with nine more names that could go down in history for leading the epic upsets of the 2013 NCAA Tournament.
Note: Because this list deals in Cinderella stories, players whose teams have been in the Top 25 at any point during the season were excluded from consideration.
