Louisville and Wichita State meet in the Final Four Saturday in a matchup where the most of the NBA prospects will be playing for one team.
The Cardinals have several players who will move on and play in the NBA. Gorgui Dieng is a likely first-round draft pick, and Russ Smith has improved his draft stock with his play during March.
Meanwhile, the Shockers might be lucky to have one of their players play at the next level. They are a team primarily of upperclassmen who win because of toughness and grit.
Even though several of these players will never make it to the league, it’s still fun to compare their games to those who currently play in the NBA.
Here are NBA comparisons for all the starters from Louisville and Wichita State.
