  1. It doesn't really matter, a team doesn't have to be the number 1 seed to win a ncaa tournament if zion and barrett are really that good then they can win no matter what region they are in

  2. Take a step back and let’s realize that NCAA basketball doesn’t mean anything. It’s a year to showcase for the NBA. These players aren’t invested in the schools as in the past. One and done has killed the NCAA and it’s basically now the nba summer league.

  3. It's SICKING how much money the school's make from college basketball now l tv deals , appeal deals ticket sales it's its like a pro league money without having to pay the players (I no they couldn't pay millions) but they could give the kids enough to have a little money in there pocket even say 300$ a week something like that

  4. I see ppl starting to see why Zion is the 1st overall pick in the upcoming draft. RJ is cold. Phenomenal talent. But Zion is a game changer. No one can guard him when he's attacking the basket. It's Lebronesque in a sense..

  5. Rick Barnes (Tennessee head coach) only has one player that was rated a Top 100 prospect coming out of high school on his roster. Yet he has a top 10 team. Mike Krzyzewski on the other hand has a roster full of four and five star players and yet can barely beat a Syracuse team. Talk about an incompetent, overrated coach.

  6. when zion got hurt. Nike stock went down 1-2%. That is over $1 billion dollar loss in market cap. You telling me that Zion is a college player? everyone making money off this brother. By playing college for 1 year he has lost over $50M. Obama, Griffey Jr. etc.. watched his college game. students sold their tickets and made more money than Zion can playing for the whole year in a single game. Messed up system. These guys are commenting on Zion – espn making money off of him. No one wants to stop the cash cow. free labor disguised as amateurism.

  7. They’re not even a Top 10 team without him. There is no way Duke beats UNC without Zion. Virginia or UNC will win ACC tourney if Duke is without Zion. So Duke would drop to a #2 seed which is what I predicted after Zion was first injured. Heck, Duke was having problems with Zion but now they’re even more vulnerable. Also, I doubt Zion is going to be as effective when he comes back, at least for the first couple of games. Hopefully, we’ll get to see the real Zion in the NCAA tourney.
