#16 Seed: The only #10 seed to make this list, the 07/08 Davidson Wildcats were the ultimate March Cinderella squad.  Stephon Curry's dance performance, particularly his dominant shooting exhibition, was and will always remain legendary!  A deeper look at this Davidson team reveals how deep ball control can take a college team into the March tournament.  Their outstanding assists-to-turnovers ratio helped the Wildcats more than compensate for height and athleticism deficiencies.  This Elite 8 Wildcat team was a mere last second possession/shot/miss from eliminating eventual 2008 NCAA champion Kansas.  Curry is considered by many to be the best pure shooter in the NBA today.
