The Real Day 1 of the NCAA Tournament - The Early Games

The games start today at 12:15pm, but the first intriguing game for scouts isn't until Kenneth Faried takes the floor against Louisville at 1:40pm. Before that game tips-off, enjoy watching WVU/Clemson and ODU/Butler, both of which could go either way. If you really want to take a look at a guy who could eventually find himself in the NBA out of those four teams, take a look at ODU's Kent Bazemore.

ESPN's Diamond Leung profile him here.

He's a small town kid who went under the radar in the recruiting process. If you arent careful watching him even now, you could miss what he brings to the table, but do yourself a favor and keep an eye on him the whole game. He doesnt take a lot of shots, but picks his spots well and scores efficiently. Finishes well near the hoop and has a solid midrange game. Sets up his teammates with great passes too when his shot isnt there. A great defender who understands positioning. Improving shooter which is a big key to whether or not he gets drafted next year.

He plays the game similar to St. John's DJ Kennedy. Both have a lot of role playing qualities which make them attractive. Deceptive athletes. Kennedy is the better shooter, while Bazemore has the edge athletically.
