Top Players to Watch on Day 3 of NCAA Tournament

The college basketball season continues its crescendo Thursday as a slate of 16 NCAA tournament games takes center stage throughout the day. Bosses can expect employees to call out "sick," college professors will walk into empty classrooms and basketball fans across the country will be committed to a long day on the couch. 

A quarter of the bracket will be eliminated by evening's end, so it's now or never for a number of standout performers. Some will rise to the occasion and advance to play another day. Others are sure to stumble and fall by the wayside without making their marks in March Madness. 

While you're flipping through channels trying to keep track of each matchup, take some time to keep an eye on these players. Each one is part of his program's foundation and may be on the verge of a memorable NCAA tournament run.
