All right, lets throw out a few...1. Solid Guard Play2. Depth3. An inside presence that can rebound well and play good defense4. Strong Foul Shooting5. Play a style that is difficult to prepare forLet the discussion begin.....
A few more esoteric requirements but requirements nonetheless:Passion for the gameEndurance Passing grades.
Yes.I'll assume Div. I college basketball players have passion - most have a dream of a big pay day in the NBA.Hopefully a well paid Div. 1 college coach has them well conditioned to handle the endurance challenges of the NCAA tournament.The Passing Grades issue -- Seems like high level collegiate athletics today is more about the $$$$ than it is playing for free to get a college education.
Shooting the three well can take you a long way in the tourney, one great player can carry a team, and smothering aggressive defense. I've always like Duke for their tough man on man.
One other thing is to look for a team that is peaking at the end of the year. Strong teams that play their best ball early in the year rarely win the tourney. While a team that finishes strong can go a long ways.
