Five Players Who Could Pull a Stephen Curry in the 2010 NCAA Tournament
Who remembers Davidson's dramatic run to the Elite Eight two seasons ago?
For those of you who remember, it would be hard to argue that Davidson's run was not solely due to Stephen Curry and his heroic offensive display.
This year, some new under-the-radar teams come into the tournament with players that have the potential to do the same as Curry did two years ago: Take over and lead their teams deep into the tournament.
I present to you the five players who can pull a "Stephen Curry" in this year's NCAA Tournament.
Armon Bassett: 14-Seed Ohio
Armon Bassett broke the record for most points in the MAC tournament with 116 points over the four games. Thats 29 per game.
On the season he is averaging 17 points per game and is the No. 1 option for this Ohio Bobcat team.
Look for him to explode in the first round vs. 3-seed Georgetown, and if G'town isn't on its game, look for these Bobcats to be moving on.
Aubrey Coleman: 13-Seed Houston
Aubrey Coleman is the nation's leading scorer at 25.6 points per game.
Coleman put up 90 points over the four C-USA tournament games to lead his Houston Cougar team to the improbable title.
He is their go-to guy, and if Maryland doesn't settle in early, they'll be playing catch-up in the second half behind Coleman's high scoring.
James Anderson: 7-Seed Oklahoma State
James Anderson led the Big 12 conference with 22.6 points per game.
He scored 27 points to lead his team in their quarterfinal loss against Kansas State.
Without him, Oklahoma State goes nowhere. He will need to come up big against the 10th-seeded Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.
Greivis Vasquez: 4-Seed Maryland
What can I say about Greivis Vasquez that already hasn't been said?
The man is a leader, and he is the reason Maryland comes into the NCAA tournament with a share of the ACC regular season title.
Averaging 19.5 points to complement his 6.5 assists, Vasquez is the team's main playmaker and No. 1 offensive option. The ball is always in his hands.
If Maryland is going to beat Houston, Vasquez can't be nonexistent.
Gordon Hayward: 5-Seed Butler
Not many people have been able to watch a Butler game this season, which is a shame because they have one of the best guards in the nation.
Gordon Hayward is a long and athletic guard who isn't scared to take seven to 10 three-pointers per game. Not only does he take a lot of threes, but he hits many too, averaging close to three makes per game.
Hayward only averages 15.5 points per game, but he grabs close to nine rebounds, and without him Butler does not know where to start its offensive attack.
He takes all the big shots, and he will make Butler relevant this NCAA tournament, finally.
