Mock Draft Lottery: Wiggins back at No. 1 Despite Poor NCAA Tournament

3 Comments

Surprisingly, it has only taken one weekend of the NCAA Tournament to knock out my first four projected picks in the NBA draft. It has been six weeks since I did my last Mock Lottery, so expect to see a few changes in the positioning, but the personnel staying relatively the same.

As I have mentioned previously, it is important to note that this list is purely based on the best overall current prospects. Once we know who is picking where and which players decide to stay in school, things will obviously change.

As we look at our brackets and try to pick who will advance to the Final Four, a lot of focus will be given to likely national player of the year Doug McDermott, the Creighton do-it-all-forward.

“McBuckets” is one of eight players to score more than 3,000 career points and could be the most dynamic and discussed player in the field of 68. So how do you defend such a stellar inside-outside offensive threat?

SheridanHoops was able to speak with opposing coaches and players, along with McDermott and his dad Greg, Creighton’s head coach, on how to defend McDermott and how the man himself sees the court when he’s in the zone.

By now, we have heard plenty about the much hyped draft class of 2014.  Riggin for Wiggins, Sorry for Jabari, Mishandle for Randle and I’m sure there are many more terms out there acting as synonyms for Tankapalooza.

It’s without doubt the most eagerly anticipated class since 2003, and whether or not it lives up to the hype is a matter of opinion.
