1. Solid Guard Play
3. An inside presence that can rebound well and play good defense
4. Strong Foul Shooting
5. Play a style that is difficult to prepare for
Let the discussion begin.....
A few more esoteric requirements but requirements nonetheless:
Passion for the game
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.

I think Stanford might be playing the best football in the toughest conference in America. Two great wins over USC (see them go for the two points?) and Oregon. I think they need some help, but if they win out, they have a chance at the Rose Bowl.
