2016 NCAA Tournament: Midwest Region Preview, Predictions

Best Player In The Region

Denzel Valentine (Michigan State)- This is a toss-up between Valentine and Virginia’s Malcolm Brogdon, the ACC player of the year. I’m giving the edge to Denzel Valentine simply because the guy can do it all. At 6’5 220 pounds, Valentine is a versatile threat all over the court. He has triple double ability every time he steps on the court, averaging 19 points, 7 assists, and 7 rebounds per game. The future NBA lottery pick will be looking to carry his team a championship.
