College Basketball's Best Players

Rising Star: Oregon Guard Tyler DorseyTyler Dorsey, Oregon's sophomore guard, has been on a scoring tear. Can he keep his Ducks flying against the Wolverines from Michigan?
Rising Star: South Carolina Forward Chris SilvaSophomore forward Chris Silva first played basketball in high school, now he's the key force behind the Gamecocks' run to the Sweet 16.
Rising Star: USC Forward Chimezie MetuSophomore forward Chimezie Metu, perhaps USC's most consistent player, earned the Pac-12’s Most Improved Player award this season.
Rising Star: SMU Guard Shake MiltonSophomore point guard Shake Milton led SMU to an AAC title and should keep his Mustangs playing deep into the NCAA Tournament.
Rising Star: Purdue Guard Carsen EdwardsFreshman Carsen Edwards, at six feet tall, can create his own shot and get in the lane better than any other Purdue perimeter player.
Rising Star: Villanova Guard Phil BoothThe sophomore from Baltimore hit the second-biggest shot of the game for Villanova (it was, admittedly, a very distant second).
Rising Star: North Carolina Guard Joel BerrySteady and efficient, if not flashy, Berry could be a key tonight against Villanova. The sophomore point guard has recorded 18 assists and just one turnover in his last two games.
Rising Star: Syracuse Forward Tyler LydonIn the second half on Sunday, Lydon nailed a three off a pick-and-pop when his defender stayed with gunner Trevor Cooney, and swished a very deep three to cut the deficit to 58-55.
