10 Players Who Can Take Over the 2019 NCAA Tournament

In last year's edition of the annual Big Dance, Jalen Brunson led the way for Villanova to take its second title in a three-year span. He was named his region's Most Outstanding Player, while the other regional honors were taken by Loyola-Chicago's Ben Richardson, Kansas' Malik Newman and Michigan's Charles Matthews. Moritz Wagner and Eric Paschall also made names for themselves in the national spotlight.

This is the way it's been for some time. Players like Kemba Walker, Stephen Curry and Gordon Hayward, regardless of their next-level success -- rise to the occasion and become household names throughout the month of March. Two of last season's standouts are back for a second straight appearance, but where do they rank among those most likely to make a lasting mark in 2019?

Here are 10 players with the potential to do just that, listed in order of overall team seed.
