Sources: San Diego State freshman Jalen McDaniels will declare for the 2018 NBA Draft, without an agent for now. McDaniels, a 6-foot-10 forward, emerged for SDSU late in season in front of NBA execs, in run to the NCAA tournament.
Collin Sexton looks phenomenal early in this one. Doing everything for Alabama: Getting to the basket, kicking to teammates and also putting pressure on ‘Nova defense on every possession due to his speed/burst.
The Friars, slotted as 10-seed by two Bracketology experts, could improve their post with a run to the Big East Championship. Xavier is in in the driver's seat with its NCAA tourney seeding; its goal this week is a program-first Big East tourney title. Should be a good semifinal.
Masterful job down 22 by @CoachChrisMack: 1. Goes to 1-3-1; 2. “Let’s Bluiett create” in transition without a timeout . 3. Calls the timeout after they go up two, to set defense and give fouls. Excellent job of handling the special situations of the game. https://t.co/oKbVify4UR
Ben Simmons and Jayson Tatum have received most of the rookie attention, but Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell has also been terrific. Averaging 17.5 points and shooting 38 percent from deep. Simmons leads rookies in scoring (17.7), rebounding (9.5) and assists (7.5).
