Now that the first weekend of the NCAA tournament has given new definition to the nickname "March Madness," it's time to step back and survey the damage.
As profiled last week, the NCAAs have always been a hallowed ground for NBA draft prospects to make a lasting impact on scouts.
Guys like Mike Conley Jr. come out of nowhere and establish themselves as high draft picks by leading their teams further than anyone could have reasonably expected. Happens every year, and this year's no different. (See: a certain 6'11" star of St. Mary's.)
But with the bracket-busting upset specials that went down this past weekend, a number of guys' college careers ended a little more prematurely than anyone could have predicted. For players who NBA scouts have been on the fence about, an early-round tournament KO never helps their NBA draft stock.
Let's check out five guys who helped their NBA draft stock this past weekend, and five guys who probably wish they could take a Hot Tub Time Machine back to last Thursday.
