NBA Comparisons for the Top Star in Each Sweet 16 Matchup

I am but a lowly college basketball writer, and as such, I don't pretend to have any specific knowledge about how amateur stars will fare in the professional ranks.

I do, however, watch a great deal of basketball—college and NBA.

And with that knowledge I've selected one top player from every Sweet 16 matchup and paired him the active NBA player whom I believe his game most resembles.

This is not a projection. Think of it instead as a way of communicating or qualifying how a college player operates as part of his current team.

If a guy is a dominant college post player, I'll match him with a dominant professional post player.

This is not meant to suggest that the dominant college post player will become a dominant professional, but rather to give you a better understanding of how his college team deploys him.

Man, that took a lot more words to explain than I expected.

Alright, on to the slides.
