Time has run out.

Over the past week, a handful of top prospects have seen their seasons come to a close. With no NCAA tournament in their futures, these prospects' résumés at the college level are complete.

I spoke with a number of NBA scouts and GMs to get their final takes on the prospects in the Top 60 you won't be seeing in the NCAA tournament this year.

Damian Lillard, PG, Jr., Weber State

Lillard is the highest-ranked prospect on our Big Board to not make it to the tournament. Luckily for him, he packed the house with NBA scouts for the Big Sky final against Montana and didn't disappoint. Lillard had 29 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists. With the exception of a weird stretch at the start of the second half where he disappeared for a few minutes, Lillard was in attack mode all night and showed off his strengths attacking the rim.
