The NCAA tournament is a star factory.
Every year in March, we're introduced to new stars, or reacquainted with ones from the past. With the eyes of the nation on them, there are always special players who come up big and make the most of their team's opportunity on the big stage.
Special players like Shabazz Napier, Aaron and Andrew Harrison, Frank Kaminsky and Julius Randle have delivered throughout the tournament, and they were all rewarded with trips to the Final Four.
This list isn't about teams, and it's not necessarily about wins either. This is all about those star-making performances that get people talking.
Of course, things move fast in the NCAA tournament—one minute you're the star of the show; the next minute you're yesterday's news—which is why we'll be updating these rankings live throughout the tourney.
Players are ranked based on their stats, buzz-worthiness and significance to their team, with wins coming into play as tiebreakers. The rankings have been done in real-time throughout the tournament and here is the final list after the conclusion of the UConn Huskies' championship run.
