Default NCAA tourney 2012: Canadians in the field

Whoever happens to be the next coach for the Canadian national basketball team will soon be inheriting a bumper crop of young talent. There have always been a decent number of Canadians playing in the NCAA, but the quality of these players is definitely on the rise.

Though not all of the nation's finest ballers are represented in this year's version of March Madness, there is a very strong contingent showcased in the premier event of the NCAA basketball season. Here are 10 players you should keep an eye on when you're watching the games.

I thought that maybe someday Rob Sacre would make it to the NBA but his odds look slim to none now. With this being his final year of eligibility.

I saw him yesterday play against Gonzaga, and he was looking good, plus he won defensive player of the year, thats gotta be something. He reminds me of a softer Chandler, he takes up a lot of space, and hes got that powerness side to him. Reggie Miller had a lot of good stuff to say about him during the game.

If anything he would be a mid to late 2nd rounder this year.

Just saw Heslip. Some pretty impressive shooting. They mentioned he was Triano's nephew.
