Adhesive Forces

As March's madness begins to reach a frenzy, SPORTS ILLUSTRATED senior writer Seth Davis unveils his 2015 All-Glue team. Glue Guys are often tricky to spot and hard to define. They're usually not the high scorer or the star player. Still, guys such as Butler senior guard Alex Barlow, Baylor junior forward Rico Gathers and Wisconsin senior guard Josh Gasser bind their teams together. They do the little things (the stuff that you will not see on a stat sheet) to help their teams: show leadership, play good defense, set screens, make the extra pass, dive on the floor for loose balls. They do those things enthusiastically, without being asked or coached to do them. Few players have their indefatigable work ethic or go as hard as they do each game. To see Davis's complete breakdown of this year's All-Glue team go to SI.com/college-basketball
