NBA General Managers have a tough assignment in drafting gems that can lead to a franchise player or a piece missing to a championship in past non-star draft years.

However, 2012 is anything but that.

This year’s draft class that includes national names such as Anthony Davis, Jared Sullinger, Perry Jones III, Harrison Barnes and Jeremy Lamb is flooded with a deep and talented draft pool.

Though there are many headline names in this draft, I’m going to give the two top names at each position and two sleeper picks that GMs should feel lucky if they fell on their lap if they’re still on the board.

Easily the unanimous number 1 pick. Will be looking to dominate the NBA for years.

Revenge State of Mind! Barnes, Marshall, Henson, Zeller too much for Duke

Revenge is a dish best served cold.

#6 North Carolina Tar Heels man handled #4 Duke Blue Devils 88-70 at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

The Tar Heels who have four potential NBA lottery picks in the upcoming 2012 NBA Draft, played like pros tonight.

Kendall Marshall orchestrated a masterpiece of a game displaying his offensive ability and maintaining a fast tempo with 20 points, 4 rebounds and 10 assists.

Lots of those assists were to the nation’s best front court in Tyler Zeller, John Henson and Harrison Barnes.

Zeller got his revenge and had 19 points and 9 rebounds, while John Henson had another double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds displaying his athleticism all night.

Of course Harrison Barnes had his say with 16 points and 4 assists showing off his step back jumper on every Blue Devil defender.

North Carolina won its 29th outright ACC crown; making a case for one of the four #1 seeds in the big dance.

Tom Crean continues to bring the best out of his # 18 Indiana Hoosiers against elite teams.

Cody Zeller and Christian Watford led the Hoosiers past Draymond Green and #5 Michigan State Spartans at home 70-55.

Dynamic Duo of Ross and Wroten Dispatch the Wildcats!

The nation needs to start paying attention to the duo of Terrance Ross and Tony Wroten because they are something special.

Athleticism, smoothness, pace, and hunger to win of Ross and Wroten led the Washington Huskies to a 79-70 win over rival Arizona Wildcats at Alaska Airlines Arena.

Sophomore Terrance Ross continued his recent scoring flurry leading the Huskies with 25 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 steals.

His counterpart, freshman Tony Wroten added 22 points and 9 rebounds, attacking the glass at every opportunity.

The duo for the Huskies got a huge home win to remain in the hunt for the Pac-12 crown and a nice resume builder to secure a hopeful at large-bid.

Kansas Trio dunks all over K-State!

The Jayhawks continue thier dominance in the Big-12 and gaining national attention as a Final Four team.

If Jeff Withey continues his dominance, expect that attention to grow.

Withey dominated with 18 points, 11 rebounds, and 9 blocks, a block away from an impressive triple double to lead #4 Kansas past Kansas State 59-53.

Tyshawn Taylor added 20 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists, and Thomas Robinson chipped in with 10 points and 9 rebounds

Bill Self’s squad who wasn’t expected to be a national power this year with the Morris twins departure to NBA in last year’s draft, are proving doubters wrong.

New Chapter in the Rivalry!

Doc Rivers had a reason to smile about his son’s performance in the hottest college basketball, Duke vs North Carolina with Austin River’s getting the last laugh.

Rivers got an isolation switch off a Mason Plumlee screen and Tyler Zeller was left for dead. 

The freshman guard from Winter Park High School hit the game-winning 3 pointer in Chapel Hill, North Carolina to lift #10 Duke Blue Devils against #5 North Carolina Tar Heels 85-84.

Austin Rivers finished with 29 points on 9-16 shooting including 6-10 from deep, looking like the best pro prospect with NBA agents and General Managers sharking in the crowd.

Just what the Doc ordered.
