Dozen players to watch in NCAAs

Over the years, we have seen stars shine on the biggest stage of college basketball.

Most people know about Trey Burke, Victor Oladipo, Mason Plumlee and Cody Zeller. Here is a list of a dazzling dozen to watch in March Madness outside of those big names.

Joe Jackson, Memphis
He led the Tigers to a perfect record in Conference USA play and a 30-4 overall mark. He is shooting well over 50 percent and pacing his team in scoring at more than 13 points per game.

Dwayne Evans, Saint Louis
He averaged slightly more than 22 PPG in the A-10 tournament, which the Billikens won. Saint Louis has captured 15 of its past 16 games. The defense has been stellar, holding four straight opponents below 60 points. The 6-foot-5 Evans is an unsung hero.

Marshall Henderson, Mississippi
He has talked about his wild ride. Averaging more than 20 PPG, the juco transfer has made a difference for the Rebels.

Allen Crabbe, California
The 6-6 scorer has averaged 22.5 PPG in the past two games.

Ian Clark, Belmont
The guard is averaging more than 18 PPG. He has a good shooting touch, and his team is more confident after rallying against Murray State in the Ohio Valley Conference final.

Lamont "Momo" Jones, Iona
He has starred in an NCAA tournament game before. Look at his play against Duke while as a member of Arizona a few years back. He could make some noise.

Troy Daniels, VCU
The 6-4 senior is averaging more than 12 PPG and contributes from long range.

Jamaal Franklin, San Diego State
He is capable of doing many things. The versatile Franklin should have a big tournament.

Mike Muscala, Bucknell
A double-double guy for the Bison, he is averaging 19 PPG and 11.2 RPG. How consistent is he? Muscala has put up three straight seasons of better than 50 percent shooting from the floor.

Jake Cohen, Davidson
He has led the Wildcats to the longest active win streak in the nation, 17 in a row.

Andre Roberson, Colorado
He is so special on the glass. He can also contribute as a scorer.

Nate Wolters, South Dakota State
He had a 53-point game earlier this season.
