March 22 College Basketball Game Thread: Hoping You Like Prospects Attending Michigan Schools

New, comments

Because if you don't, you may not be thrilled with today's line-up of games.

The good news is in the 3rd round CBS and Turner stagger the start times to an absolutely absurd degree, allowing you to watch as much time from as many games as humanly possible in a 12-hour span. The bad news is unless you are watching either Michigan or Michigan State, you probably are not going to be seeing much in the way of 20141st round talent. In fact, outside of Tyler Ennis, Jerami Grant, and Montrezl Harrell, there really is not any other 1st round talent and those three are probably at best mid-round picks.

But hey! College basketball has fun and this tournament has been absolutely ridiculous so far, so despite the relative lack of NBA talent competing today may be in terms of excitement we may yet uncover a diamond or two in the rough.
