Norris Cole of Cleveland State finished today's game against Youngstown State with a stat-line that makes you look twice. Finishing with 41 points, 20 rebounds and nine assists, the 6'2" guard put up some of the best numbers we have seen out of anyone this season.
Aside from this one game, Norris Cole has had an outstanding season thus far. He has the ability to make some noise in the NCAA tournament with his solid Cleveland State squad, as does Kenneth Faried of Morehead State.
Faried, a 6'8" senior, leads the nation in rebounding. He has been compared to the likes of Dennis Rodman. By putting up 15 points, 12 boards, five steals and two blocks against Ohio State this year, he has proven that he is the real deal. Yet the vast majority of America does not know his name.
These following players, like Cole and Faried, are not household names, but have the potential to make a big splash when March rolls around.
