NBA Draft Prospects to watch in the NCAA Tournament West Region

Zion Williamson, ACC & Nike Dominate on Selection Sunday

The No. 2 seeds were Michigan State, Michigan, Tennessee and Kentucky. Zion Williamson, RJ Barrett, or even Ja Morant (if you believe in his hype) could end up in New Orleans one way or another.

"We also realize that we're susceptible as every team is in this tournament and sometimes that's as valuable to know instead of thinking you're invincible", Bennett said Friday of the NCAA Tournament.

The Wildcats are trying to become the first team to repeat as national champions since Florida in 2006 and 2007.

Going into the NCAA Tournament, Duke is slated as the No. 1 overall seed in the east region facing the victor of North Carolina Central and North Dakota State who will play Wednesday.

After missing five games with a sprained knee, Williamson returned last week for the ACC Tournament, where he averaged 27 points and 10 rebounds in three games to lead Duke to the title over Florida State. But despite a 28-2 regular season record, their success did not carry over into the ACC Tournament as the Cavaliers were upset by 4th-seeded FSU in the Semifinals.

Duke University. With 6-foot 7-inch, 280-pound forward Zion Williamson back from injury, Duke is the favorite to win the tournament. His fellow freshman R.J. Barrett is also a Naismith finalist.

The Blue Devils are in the NCAA Tournament for the 24th consecutive season, which is topped by only Kansas' current streak of 30 consecutive tournaments.

Many suspects were arrested, while others received warnings to let them know they are being monitored. Israel has also bombed Gaza in response to periodic rocket fire from the strip's rulers, Hamas.

That would be far too risky, since UNC has one of the better chances to win at least three of four games, and getting later round games right is what really brings in the points. This is a year where teams like the Bulls could try to move around a lot, but most organizations will be hesitant to overpay for anybody outside of the top three.

The NCAA Tournament Selection Committee has always had a subtle sense of humor when putting together each bracket. Now, Zion Williamson and co. are a villain insofar as the uniforms they wear, but there's a likability that this team possesses that is not normal for a Blue Devils squad.

At the free throw line, 69 percent could be a problem for the Blue Devils in a close game.

While most Cinderella teams are seeded 10 or lower, the Tigers are an overlooked team poised to make a run. Williamson's absence allowed the Tar Heels take control of the game for a 88-72 win.

By winning the SEC tournament, Auburn rose eight spots to No. 14. Coming out of Spartanburg Day School in South Carolina, Williamson was ranked second in the 2018 recruiting class by ESPN, with his senior year highlight tape being viewed by over 2.7 million people on YouTube.

As of Monday, you could get into the door for both games for around $300 per ticket total, according to SeatGeek.

The hype surrounding Williamson's career in high school led many people to believe that he had the potential to be the next Lebron James, but the greatest obstacle the Duke freshman had was not going into the National Basketball Association out of high school the way James did.
