The Bilas all-tournament team
A look at the 10 best players from the 2014 NCAA tournament
The 2014 NCAA tournament has been an exhibition for great basketball all around. However, a handful of players have stood out against the rest.
I was asked to assemble my 10-man roster for an all-tournament team -- divided into first team and second team. There were plenty of fine candidates, but when it comes time to compete for a championship, these are the guys I want on the floor playing for me. While not all of them are in action at the Final Four, they've all left an impressive mark on this edition of March Madness.
Shabazz Napier, Connecticut Huskies: No player has been better and has meant more to his team than Napier. He has led his teammates, controlled games and improvised in ways we haven't seen since, well, since Kemba Walker in 2011 (a show for which Napier had a premium view). Whether on or off the ball, Napier has averaged 23 points, 6 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 2 steals per game, and has hit 25 of 27 free throws. Napier has had help, but he has carried the biggest load of the tournament.
