CBS could give us one helluva "One Shining Moment" montage just from the opening weekend.
The tournament has not disappointed thus far and neither have the stars. A couple of weeks ago, my colleague, Jason King, and I had a tough time trying to figure out the 15 players to make our All-American team. Many more were deserving. Well, that was nowhere near the challenge of trying to pick the five best guys from the opening weekend.
Adreian Payne dropped 41 points in one game, and for a brief moment, I considered leaving him off this all-tourney team.
Easy, Michigan State fans. He made it. Payne and these other four guys have been the most impactful and productive players through the round of 32.
Honorable Mention: Nick Johnson, Arizona; Scottie Wilbekin, Florida; Aaron Harrison, Kentucky; Jordan Adams, UCLA
