Eye on Basketball Podcast: How is your Mock Draft bracket?

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

Matt Moore joins me for today's podcast to discuss all of the madness from the opening rounds of the NCAA Tournament. With early exits and underwhelming performances by Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker, is the knee-jerk reaction, that this draft class isn't all it's cracked up to be and these two players won't be stars, valid at all? Does the alpha dog idea hold any water? Did the way their coaches use them factor into their poor play? What do they have to work on? Are they still stars to covet?

What about the other players in the tournament? Should we be turning on Doug McDermott for not carrying his team in the second game? Does his game translate to the NBA? Has our opinion on Marcus Smart changed at all? What about the kids from Kentucky? Have the Harrison twins improved their stock already? Is Willie Cauley-Stein a top 10-worthy pick? Is Julius Randle the last star in the tournament?

We discuss all of this, plus the race for the 8-seed in the West, the back end of the East playoffs, and preview tonight's games.
