Sweet 16 Players To Watch Include Victor Oladipo, Aaron Craft, Vander Blue, Rasheed Sulaimon


The NCAA Tournament has reached the round of 16. Three of the four No. 1 seeds are still alive. There are three double digit seeds still dancing, including a No. 15 seed for the first time ever. Unlikely heroes have emerged -- and dunked on Georgetown -- while some of the game's brightest stars have shined.

Inside (Cody Zeller, Derrick Nix, Jeff Withey) and out (Victor Oladipo, Trey Burke, Russ Smith), the teams in the round of 16 are stocked with talented players. Two of them will go at it in the wild West Region when No. 2 Ohio State takes on No. 6 Arizona. Can Ohio State's Aaron Craft shut down Arizona sharpshooter Mark Lyons?

"I'm not worried about the matchup. I just want to try to win. If I win, that'll take care of everything else,” Lyons said, via the Plain Dealer. "I just make plays to win. I don't think, 'It's time to do this or that.' I play with my instincts. It's worked for me the past couple games and I'll try to keep that going."

Whether or not Lyons is worried about his matchup with Craft, fans should be sure to watch it. Here are 16 must-watch players to follow during the Sweet 16.
