Quick, name the Most Outstanding Player of the South Region.
Officially speaking, that honor belongs to Ben Richardson of Loyola-Chicago.
Meanwhile, in the West Region, your 2018 MOP is none other than Charles Matthews of Michigan.
See how this works? The most outstanding player is the individual who is having the best tournament for the team that's still playing.
Well, if the NCAA can do it, we can too. Here are the top 25 players at the Final Four. Taking a page from MOP selection protocol, these rankings are based on tournament performance alone.
Watch for these tournament standouts this weekend in San Antonio, and keep in mind, a "low" ranking among a group so plainly overpopulated by peak performers is no slight whatsoever. In the immortal words of Troy McClure, "If you ask me, they're all winners."
