Winning tournament games is typically determined by tremendous perimeter play. Recently we have seen miracle workers such as Derrick Rose of Memphis, Villanova's Scottie Reynolds, as well as Kyle Singler and Nolan Smith of Duke, pilot their respective teams to the Final Four.
Having outstanding perimeter play is indispensable in the tournament and perhaps the ideal Final Four formula. When plays break down and situations get alarming, those are the players who can create their own shots, make intelligent decisions off the dribble and, in some circumstances, just flat take over.
In this year's field, there will be some shining stars who fit the bill. Jimmer Fredette and Kemba Walker are two prime examples.
This chaotic season has taught me two things. First, expect the unexpected. Second, this class of post players and forwards has reigned supreme, overshadowing the guards. It's the year of the big man. The versatile and physical skyscrapers will be the story of this year's Big Dance.
Are these forwards capable of taking over games and creating their own tournament legacy?
My answer is yes, and these next 10 individuals are the reason.
