NCAA 2013 - Who is a Jew?

The NCAA BBall season has begun (watching a close MSU/Kentucky game right now). Below in BLUE you will find the players we had found that are your Jewish ballers to watch this season. We are on a search for more. The group in RED has a Jewish surname with the possibility of being Jewish (could be some we have missed). If you have any information that helps send it our way (info@thegreatrabbino.com). Are assumptions that most of the bottom names are NOT Jewish, but worth a crowd sourcing shot.
