Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid are out.

Jabari Parker is out.

Dante Exum was never in.

There aren't many top prospects still in the NCAA Tournament, but there are a few.

Kentucky's Julius Randle, UConn's Shabazz Napier, and Arizona's Alex Gordon are still in, and Celtics fans should keep an eye on all three.

Tim Welsh joined Mike Felger on Sports Sunday to discuss the remaining players, and he's a big fan of the UConn guard.

"The guy I love is Shabazz Napier," Welsh said. "He has just taken over this tournament. [Saturday] night he won the game for Connecticut. He is putting on a Kemba Walker show for Connecticut. He may lead them to the Final Four because they only need two wins in New York City at the Garden next weekend, it will be a very favorable home crowd for UConn. Napier is a real good player. I don't know why he's pushed back so much, but I think he's going to move up the board."
