With the NCAA set to commence on Thursday, most of the talk will surround Kansas quest to win a second national title in three years, Kentucky trying to reach its first Final Four in 12 years, can Syracuse rebound from two losses to end the regular season and Duke returning to its first Final Four since 2004.
The lost heroes of those teams are the cheerleaders that try stir up their teams' fans and help inspire their teams to victory. They work just as hard as the teams they cheer on and in some cases receive scholarships and are considered athletes just like the players that don jerseys.
Compiling the list was not easy. Every school has at least one hot cheerleader that deserves mention. The ones that are posted I am sure are the dreams of many young men (and even some not so young ones) on campuses across the country.
