You think you are ready for the Sweet 16? Well these are the guys to watch out for.
#1 Harrison Barnes- North Carolina
Before the tournament began, if there was one player that could lead his team to a National Championship that player was Harrison Barnes.
PG Kendall Marshall is sidelined with a fractured wrist. Marshall is the one guy that everyone in Tarheels Nation has declared as the most important player on the team.
Now Barnes, who is averaging 17 ppg this season, must step up.
The 2010 ACC Rookie of the Year returned to North Carolina for his sophomore season to a team that should’ve had all five of its starters on the court during this time of year.
But injuries to Dexter Strickland, and now Marshall, leave the Tar Heels wondering if they are still a national championship team.
Barnes is a can’t miss NBA prospect that will be a top five lottery pick in June. He just has business to take care of before the upcoming NBA draft. He returned to Chapel Hill for a national championship.
As the team’s most important player will be in street clothes the rest of the way, the team’s best player will be wearing No. 40.
The Tar Heels title hopes did fall on the shoulders of Marshall, but now, the attention has turned to Barnes. He has the talent to lead his team to a championship. On Friday, his quest continues.
