If you're looking for players who will be top ten draft picks, this region probably isn't for you as it doesn't boast top shelf individual talent. However, if you want to see squads that thrive because of superior teamwork, communication, coaching, and intangibles, you're in the right place. There will be plenty of quality big men in the region that could make for some absolute battles in the paint. Any number of teams could win this region and each team presents a unique challenge for its opponents.
The South Region is like an NBA Draft preview tournament. Its star power really rises above the rest of the brackets, including super freshman Ben McLemore of Kansas and national player of the year frontrunners Trey Burke of Michigan and Otto Porter of Georgetown. Don’t forget James Michael-McAdoo of North Carolina, Shabazz Muhammad of UCLA and Nate Wolters of South Dakota State. It’s basically a who’s-who of college basketball, and the team play isn’t too bad, either.
