RANKED: The 18 Most Important Players in March Madness

18. Jawun Evans – G – Oklahoma State


Notable stats: 19.0 PPG, 6.2 APG, 1.8 SPG, 3.3 RPG

Evans is one of the nation’s most underrated guards. Quick and shifty, he’s relentless when attacking the paint. Without question, the sophomore is OSU’s go-to guy when offense is needed.

17. Johnathan Motley – F – Baylor


Notable stats: 17.3 PPG, 9.9 RPG, shooting 51.7-percent on 2-point attempts

Motley is an absolute matchup nightmare. His mobility is problematic for bigger players, and his 6’10” frame is tough for smaller competitors to match up against. Baylor’s leading scorer, the Bears will lean on him for their first tournament win in three years.
