Rivals.com All-Surprise Team

MORE: All-Tournament Team

Some players are worth special mention besides Davidson's Stephen Curry. Not every team can make the Final Four, but there still were plenty of memorable performers in underdog roles. So, here is our All-Surprise team:

Rivals.com All-Surprise Team
G Tyrone Brazelton, Western Kentucky
6-0, 180 Sr.
Chicago, Ill.
The Buzz: It was Brazelton, not highly touted backcourt mate Courtney Lee, who propelled the Hilltoppers' surprising run to the Sweet 16. He had 14 3-pointers and 79 points in three games (26.3 ppg). He riddled Drake for 33 in a first-round upset of the fifth-seeded Bulldogs, and Brazelton had 31 to lead a frantic comeback that fell short against UCLA in the Sweet 16.
G Alex Ruoff, West Virginia
6-6, 215 Jr.
Spring Hill, Fla.
The Buzz: The underrated Ruoff shot 58.8 percent (20 of 34) in the Mountaineers' three games, including 7-for-14 from 3-point range. He averaged 17.3 points and 5.0 rebounds per game and helped WVU to a second-round upset of second-seeded Duke with 17 points.
G Scottie Reynolds, Villanova
6-2, 190 So.
Herndon, Va.
The Buzz: He was sensational in lifting the Wildcats into the Sweet 16 before he was stifled by Kansas. In the first two rounds, he averaged 23 points and 6.0 rebounds and shot better than 50 percent. He led Villanova in scoring against the Jayhawks but could muster only 11 points on 4-for-13 shooting.
F Andrew Lovedale, Davidson
6-8, 215 Jr.
Benin City, Nigeria
The Buzz: The 6-8 junior averaged 6.8 points during the season, but he came alive during the Wildcats' electrifying run. He averaged 10.3 points and 6.4 rebounds and shot 54.8 percent (17 of 31). His best game was a first-round double-double (12 points, 13 rebounds) against Gonzaga.
C Gyno Pomare, San Diego
6-8, 240 Jr.
Oceanside, Calif.
The Buzz: The 6-8 junior center helped the Toreros to perhaps the most shocking first-round upset, a 70-69 overtime thriller over No. 4 seed UConn. He had 22 points, four rebounds and three steals against the Huskies, and he followed that with 20 points, nine boards and another three steals in a second-round loss to Western Kentucky. In the two games, Pomare shot 77.3 percent (17 of 22).
