Last, but certainly not least, is Turner, who could well be a top-three pick if...okay, when he leaves for the NBA after this season. The Ohio State star averages 19 points a game, but also leads the league in rebounding with over nine per contest.
Turner has put on a show this weekend at Conseco Fieldhouse, hitting one of the most memorable shots in tournament history to knock off Michigan at the buzzer and following that up with a 31-point effort against Illinois in semifinal action.
Illini coach Bruce Weber had nothing but good things to say about one of the most talented Big Ten players in recent memory.
"He's versatile, and he's improved," said Weber. "I've watched him since his sophomore year in high school and he continues to get better and better. He works at it, he loves it, he's grown, he's stronger, and he's way better than he was a year ago.
"So he's got unlimited potential."
Or as Turner's coach Thad Matta put it, "The great thing about Evan: Evan doesn't want to just play in the NBA. Evan wants to be a great player the day he goes and have a great career."
Not much doubt about that.
