The 2016 Final Four of the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament showcased a ton of elite talent, however, the National Champion Villanova Wildcats had no players taken in the NBA Draft.They did have a pair graduating seniors ink pro deals though. 

First off, Ryan Arcidiacono, the NCAA tournament's most outstanding player, landed a deal with the San Antonio Spurs.

Arcidiacono played 37 minutes and scored 16 points for the Wildcats in their National Championship victory. He worked out for 12 different teams leading up to the draft.

Fellow graduating senior Daniel Ochefu also landed a spot on an NBA squad.

Ochefu scored nine points and grabbed six rebounds in the NCAA National Championship. He played a pivotal role for the team down low.

Both players going un-drafted means they will likely have to compete for a roster spot and may spend some time in the NBA's Developmental League.
