March Madness: Who to Watch
Attention, college hoops fans: It's time to start your brackets. There's a lot of hype around the upcoming NBA draft class, and it makes sense - this is considered one of the best pools of talent since 2003. So which players should you be keeping an eye on?
If you're a little out of the loop, keep it locked on Jimmy Jazz for updates. Here's what you need to know:
Jabari Parker - Averaging 19.2 points and 9.0 rebounds per game, the 28-year-old freshman managed to meet the ultra high expectations set for him at Duke.
Doug McDermott - Even though the Creighton head coach's son is not considered one of the top prospects in the draft, his aggressive offensive skills this season show some serious promise, especially with an average of 26.5 points per game.
Scottie Wilbekin - It helps that Wilbekin is hitting the court for the Florida Gators - a team that's ranked No. 1 overall seed in the country. Averaging 2.9 points, 3.9 assists and 1.5 steals per game, the senior was also named the SEC Player of the Year.
Nick Johnson - There's a chance Arizona could steal the No. 1 seed if only due to this standout two-way player. The guard has been leading the Wildcats with an impressive average of 16.1 points per game.
Sean Kilpatrick - It doesn't matter that Cincinnati is a predominantly defense team. He's still managed to dominate the court regardless, scoring 20 points per game.
