With March Madness upon us, it’s always fun to see who on the court might be the next big NBA superstar. This could be because their game simply doesn’t translate to the NBA or because their skills were specific to a certain system in college. Bryant “Big Country” Reeves had an NBA career with the Vancouver Grizzlies that lasted only a little longer than his college career, despite some early success.
Penn State football head coach James Franklin announced that senior Jason Cabinda (Flemington, N.J.) and juniors Trace McSorley (Ashburn, Va.) and Nick Scott (Fairfax, Va.) have been voted as team captains for the 2017 season by their teammates. “These three young men have been leaders in our program, on and off the field,” Franklin said. Cabinda garnered third-team All-Big Ten accolades from the conference coaches, despite missing five games due to injury.
It's not just body language, as he told reporters before a Final Four game last year. UConn coach Geno Auriemma shared this key to telling if a potential recruit is the right fit for his program in February, as the Huskies were looking for their 100th consecutive win. "The majority of the kids we get, they talk about winning championships," he said. "Whenever a kid says to me, 'What position am I going to play?' or, "What's my role going to be on the team?' I go, 'Well, you're probably not going to have one, because you're probably not coming to Connecticut.'" The Huskies, who are going for their fifth consecutive title, face off against 4-seed UCLA on Thursday.
