The NCAA tournament is over and congratulations to the Connecticut Huskies for winning the 2023-2024 NCAA tournament. UConn is the first team to win back to back titles since Florida in 2006 and 2007. Connecticut beat Purdue in the National Championship game and It has been a while since the top two teams in the country have played for the National Championship but that is exactly what everyone got with UConn and Purdue. There are many who will dispute this, but the NCAA tournament was fantastic even though there were not nearly as many upsets as many hoped for. Even without the upsets there were a lot of players who put up huge individual performances but there are six players who stood out among the rest.

Now that the tournament is over it is time for a proper all tournament team. Obviously when you do an all tournament team the teams who played the most games are going to be the ones who will likely be included and that isn’t going to be much different in this instance but not every player on this list was in the final four. That also means that there will be more variance outside of Purdue and UConn. I chose six players for this list. The reason I chose six players is because the top player is going to be the tournament MVP and am going to give five other players recognition.

Let’s start with the players who didn’t make the cut who had fantastic performances. Tyrece Radford was big for the Texas A&M Aggies who made the second round. Radford averaged 24 points, 13 rebounds, and 6 assists over two games in the NCAA tournament. Jack Gohlke was the top of the tournament after his 32 point performance which helped the Oakland Golden Grizzlies to beat Kentucky in the first round. The guard averaged 27 points and made 16 threes in two games in the tournament. Those players all had their moment and will be remembered forever. Here are the six players who let their shining moment last a little longer with their performances.
