Depending on who you ask, for the past three years Ohio State's Aaron Craft has either been the most underrated or overrated player in the country. The 6'2" guard is a defensive stopper, to be sure, but other than his 2.1 steals per game, his numbers (10 PPG, 4.6 APG, 41.7 FG%) aren't exactly eye-popping. No matter. Craft's supporters will tell you his contributions can't be measured by simple statistics. However, there is one number that may shed light on how much he has meant to this program: 94.
