March Madness’ Top 10 Players, Ranked by PeekScore

Parker and Hood
March means different things to different folks. For those of us living in the northern hemisphere it means the onset of spring. For some it may mean St. Patrick’s revelry, and for strange others it may perhaps invite a bout of Ides of March dread.

But for a great many Americans — both those with office pools and without (but particularly those with) — it means March Madness, the NCAA‘s annual men’s basketball championship tournament.

In honor of this year’s dose of this annual brouhaha, we’ve decided to take a look at the online presences of the kids whose blood, sweat, and tears make the whole thing possible.

We can’t assess the teams’ respective abilities on the court, nor can we quantify the academic qualities of the assorted colleges involved. What we can and will do, though, is take the tournament’s top players and put them through their PeekScore paces; measuring and comparing their respective digital footprints, and sizing up their presences, impacts, and varying degrees of influence here in the Internet’s ether.
