The calendar has officially flipped to May and the NBA Draft is just eight short weeks away. Some prospects are finishing up their final semesters of college (like you and I) while some have already left to prepare for the spring combines (not like you and I).
Earlier, we here at Dorm Room Hoops let you in on who we thought was going to be a reach and eventually be a dud in the this draft class. Now, sit back and learn who this year’s studs are in the 2015 NBA Draft Class.
This game showed that a 14 seed can play with the big boys. Georgia State played a great game against Xavier in the first half with multiple lead changes and a halftime difference of just 4 points. The second half was just as close until the last few minutes of the game when Xavier started to pull away. Free throws made the difference in this game with Dee Davis from Xavier making 6 free throws in the last 44 seconds of the game. Xavier ended the last chance for a true Cinderella team to make it to the Sweet 16.
One 14-seed upset was so much fun … why not have another? While Georgia State may not have very many NCAA Tournament appearances under its belt, its roster does have big-time experience … and that experience showed as R.J. Hunter hit a giant 3-pointer with 3 seconds left to lift the Panthers to a stunning 57-56 win over Baylor.
