None of the top projected picks in the 2017 NBA Draft will be in the Final Four, with the likes of Lonzo Ball, Josh Jackson and Malik Monk playing for teams that were ousted from March Madness this past weekend. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t still top talents left in the NCAA Tournament.

North Carolina might have the most overall talent of any team in the country, while Oregon has a few potential draft picks in their starting lineup. Gonzaga center Zach Collins comes off the bench, but the freshman might end up being the highest selection of any college basketball player that suits up this weekend.

Here are the five best players in the 2017 Final Four:

Justin Jackson, North Carolina

Jackson is the best player on the best team in the Final Four. He won the ACC Player of the Year award by leading the Tar Heels in scoring with 18.2 points per game, and he’s third on the team in both rebounds and assists. There’s a good chance the forward will be a lottery pick after returning for his junior season, and he might be the biggest reason that North Carolina ends up cutting down the nets on April 3.

Sindarius Thornwell, South Carolina

Thornwell might have made himself a lot of money in March Madness. Not considered a top NBA prospect before the NCAA Tournament, he’s arguably been the country’s best player over the last two weeks. He’s the leading tournament scorer in the Final Four with 25.8 points per game, and his stellar defense has helped South Carolina make the most improbable run of any team in 2017.

Jordan Bell, Oregon

The Ducks haven’t felt the loss of the injured Chris Boucher, largely because of what Bell has brought to the team. Known for his defense and rebounding, Bell has raised his game even further in March Madness, recording at least 12 rebounds in every tournament game. He’s added more of an offensive game, putting up 12.5 points per contest in the tournament, looking like he could be a mid-second round pick.

Tyler Dorsey, Oregon

Oregon has real chance to win the national title because of the way Dorsey is playing. He’s surpassed Dillon Brooks as the team’s No.1 scorer, totaling at least 21 points in each game since the start of the Pac-12 Tournament. The guard has been incredibly efficient, scoring 24.5 points on just 12.8 shots per game in the NCAA Tournament.

Nigel Williams-Goss, Gonzaga

Williams-Goss might never play in the NBA, but he has a real chance to be the best player on a national champion. Not only does he lead the Bulldogs with 16.7 points per game, but he fills up the stat sheet with 5.9 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 1.8 steals per contest. He scored 23 points in the Elite Eight after failing to put up more than 10 points in two of his previous three tournament games, and he might be the key to Gonzaga’s national title hopes.
