3. Scoop Jardine (Syracuse): In March, point guard poise is crucial. A team’s talent pool means little if it doesn’t have a floor leader who can stay under control. Jardine has a 2.5 assist-to-turnover ratio in Big East play (5.8 apg, 2.3 tpg). The senior might not make large contributions to Syracuse’s offensive output in the NCAA tournament (8.9 ppg), but his playmaking and leadership will prove vital for a Syracuse team that’s capable of winning another national title for Jim Boeheim. And he’s also been a crucial leader off the floor. Throughout the Bernie Fine drama, Jardine helped his team remain focused.
