Starting this week, 68 teams will compete in the greatest single-elimination tournament that sports has to offer.
The beautiful thing about March Madness is that any team can win. String together six (or seven, if you’re in a play-in game) perfect wins together and you earn the right to call yourselves the best team in the country. Even if you don’t make it to the final, for some lower-seeded teams, a miracle run to the Sweet 16 is all it takes to become the darling of the tournament.
Whether you’re a top team contending for a title, or a low seed just looking to make a splash, every school will be looking to its star players to step up. For that reason, we’ve collected a list of one player to watch on every team in the tournament.
