March Madness has everyone going crazy! With college basketball season taking over, there's no way we can let it pass without looking back in history. For this piece, we'll dive into Devin Booker's lone college season with the Kentucky Wildcats.

The Phoenix Suns had the chance to draft Booker back in the 2015 NBA Draft with the 15th pick. Coming into the league, he was known as just a spot-up shooter. But after years of developing his talents with the Suns, he became a more well-rounded offensive player. The 27-year-old shooting guard is now a flexible All-Star guard that threatens most defenders on the court.

The 2014 roster of Kentucky boasted NBA-level talent. Aside from the Suns star, the roster had Karl-Anthony Towns and Trey Lyles. Other notable names who made it to the league were Willie Cauley-Stein and Tyler Ulis, who played for 132 games in Phoenix. But in retrospect, Booker stood out among the rest.

When he arrived in Phoenix, then-head coach Jeff Hornacek had high praise for Booker's raw talent.

""He's pretty solid all around. Obviously, he can stroke it. And defensively, when I look at him, most of the time, he's in the right position.""

Looking at where Booker is in his career now, many consider him one of the best shooting guards in the league. With the talent that the NBA has currently, getting such a compliment means a lot.

Booker has transitioned into the Suns' franchise star. Although they do have Kevin Durant and Bradley Beal, the former Kentucky star is still the man behind the wheel. Now, let's get into the three best college games for Phoenix's All-Star guard.
