March Madness, the annual NCAA Tournament, is a thrilling part of every year for basketball fans, where buzzer-beaters, upsets and unforgettable Cinderella Final 4 runs make the event must-see viewing.
And as part of every NCAA Tournament, a media panel selects a Most Outstanding Player, which usually – though not always – goes to a player from the championship-hoisting program at the end of the tournament.
Sometimes, that award goes to players who are elite NBA prospects and wind up having long careers in the world’s top basketball league. But other times, it goes to college stars who are elite at that level but don’t possess the athleticism or size to be as effective in the NBA.
Below, check out where every single NCAA Tournament Most Outstanding Player since Carmelo Anthony (Syracuse) in 2003 is now.
Spoiler alert: Just eight of them are currently playing in the NBA.
