2013 NCAA Tournament Video: Three Players to Watch in the Sweet 16
Aaron Craft (Ohio State)
The Ohio State point guard hit one of the biggest shots of the tournament on Sunday as the Buckeyes advanced at the buzzer to the Sweet 16 round. Aaron Craft’s importance is always felt on this Ohio State squad, but now he faces the difficult of squaring up and slowing down Arizona’s Mark Lyons. Craft is a defensive specialist, but Lyons is averaging 25 points per game thus far in the tournament. Something has to give in this match-up and it very well could determine who advances to the Elite 8.
Mason Plumlee (Duke)
Duke survived Creighton in the third round before advancing to the Sweet 16, but senior forward Mason Plumlee found himself in foul trouble for nearly the entire second half. Plumlee cannot afford to get into foul trouble in their Sweet 16 match-up against Michigan State. We know that Plumlee can dominate inside, but the Spartans have a loaded front court roster that surely won’t be giving up easy buckets. Plumlee must avoid foul trouble as it’s crucial to the Blue Devils’ game plan.
Ben McLemore (Kansas)
Kansas freshman Ben McLemore has the potential to be the No. 1 overall selection in the 2013 NBA Draft. With that being said, McLemore is averaging 6.5 points per game in the tournament, which is ten points below his season average. McLemore was 0-for-9 from the field in the Jayhawks’ third round win and is just 2-for-14 combined from the field in the tournament. Kansas cannot afford another slow game from McLemore, so keep an eye on this freshman Jayhawk.
