Ben McLemore (Kansas)
Friday, as Kansas slipped by the 16th seeded Western Kentucky 64-57, McLemore was sort of neutral, only scoring 11 points. The freshman shooting guard added six assists, and his draft stock didn’t take a hit as The Charlotte Bobcats, who have the best chance to get the number one pick, need his consistent scoring and calming presence, and would probably pick McLemore up right at the start of the draft. Kansas tips off against North Carolina later today in the round of 32.
Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo (Indiana)
The Hoosiers are rolling. As the number one seed in their region, they took out the 16th seed James Madison University 83-62, where Zeller only played 27 minutes and scored 11 points. Oladipo played only 26 minutes and scored 11 points as well.
In the next round, they defeated the ninth seed Temple 58-52 while Zeller scored 15 points and Oladipo added 16 points, as the Hoosiers punched their card to the sweet sixteen.
Both of these players will be fine in the Association. Oladipo is so athletic that he can fit in anywhere and Zeller could be a back-up center on good teams and a starting center on bad ones.
