2017-18 College Basketball – All-Name Team

We have so many great, new entries this season. Also, many of last year’s gems are still on college teams this season. 

We picked through every Division-I college basketball roster and a few smaller schools for our list. This year’s class is solid and better than last year’s All-Name Team.

My name is Bobby Roberts, so I am often jealous of people with unique names. The most unique thing about my name is that I was not born ‘Robert Roberts’, Bobby is my given name. I don’t know too many grown men named Bobby.

This list consists of names that we wished he had and ones we find humorous. Enjoy!

2017 NBA Draft – Best Undrafted Players

The NBA Draft is only two rounds and consists of a total of 60 picks, so not every good college basketball player will hear his name called during the NBA Draft.

There are still some very good players left to either sign for an NBA team’s Summer League spot in hopes of catching on with a team. Most will probably end up in the Gatorade League (former D-League) or play overseas.

I’m sure people who love ‘their team’ always wonder why the star of their team didn’t even play a single minute in the NBA.

The Draft is a tricky thing. There are only two rounds, so a lot of teams teams draft for need. There are also teams who draft people overseas to stash for a couple years.

This is not the end of the road for these players. There are many undrafted players in the NBA, so a few of these guys will still make their dreams come true in the future.

Butler played one of their best games of the season at the right time. They upset current #1 seed Villanova in a stunner. The Bulldogs also went on to lose to a few bad teams, so which team will show up the first round?

Winthrop has had success in the NCAA tournament before as an #11 seed when they defeated Notre Dame in 2007.

2017 March Madness: #4 Purdue vs #13 Vermont

2017 Caleb Swanigan Purdue Boilermakers NCAA Tournament March MadnessWe are here to help you fill out your brackets and finally beat your cubicle neighbor in your office pool this year.

Purdue were one of the preseason favorites to win the Big Ten this season. They accomplished that goal, but fell short in the conference tournament. I thought they deserved a higher seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Vermont went undefeated in the America East conference. Head coach John Becker will be getting a lot of phone calls this offseason and will have a shot to lead a bigger program.

Can Vermont upset Purdue in Milwaukee?

2017 March Madness: #4 West Virginia vs #13 Bucknell

2017 Jevon Carter West Virginia Mountaineers March Madness NCAA TournamentWe are here to help you fill out your brackets and finally beat your cubicle neighbor in your office pool this year.

The Mountaineers have humbled some of the best teams in the country this season. Their wins against Kansas and Baylor put them on the map. They aren’t intimidated by any team.

Bucknell is a trendy upset pick in this year’s NCAA Tournament. They’ve had upsets in 2004 against Arkansas and their biggest one against Kansas in 2005. I guess anything could happen this year so they shouldn’t be overlooked.

Can Bucknell upset West Virginia in Buffalo?

2017 March Madness: #5 Minnesota vs #12 Middle Tennessee

2017 JaCorey Williams Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders NCAA Tournament March MadnessWe are here to help you fill out your brackets and finally beat your cubicle neighbor in your office pool this year.

No one expected Minnesota to be this good at the start of the season. Not only did they miss the NCAA Tournament and NIT last year, but they only won eight games. A college program doesn’t usually make this kind of turnaround unless they had a top recruiting class, which the Golden Gophers did not have.

Middle Tennessee dominated in Conference USA. They would have probably received an at-large bid if they failed to win the conference tournament.

Can Middle Tennessee pull off another upset?

2017 March Madness: #5 Iowa State vs #12 Nevada

2017-Monte-Morris-Iowa-State-Cyclones-NCAA-Tournament-March-MadnessWe are here to help you fill out your brackets and finally beat your cubicle neighbor in your office pool this year.

Iowa State hung with some of the best teams in the country in the Big 12. They didn’t exactly stand out since Kansas and Baylor got all the press. The Cyclones will be a tough out in this tourney.

As a #12 seed, Nevada is automatically a popular upset pick. #5 seeds have fallen to a #12 seeds in bunches over the years. I’m not sure Nevada is in the same league as Iowa State, but anything is possible.

Can Nevada upset Iowa State in Milwaukee?

2017 March Madness: #5 Notre Dame vs #12 Princeton

2017 VJ Beachem Notre Dame Fighting Irish March Madness NCAA TournamentWe are here to help you fill out your brackets and finally beat your cubicle neighbor in your office pool this year.

Notre Dame had a successful run in the ACC Tournament and probably should have received a #4 seed in the tourney. They are a dangerous #5 seed this year.

Princeton won the first-ever Ivy League conference tournament and went undefeated in conference play.

Ivy League teams are always trendy picks to upset teams in the first round. Many have had past success doing just that. The players go to Ivy League teams for a reason, they play smart basketball.

Who do you think will win? We help you fill out your bracket.
