NBA fans usually are not interested in college basketball until March rolls around. We fill out our brackets, follow the Cinderella teams, and if our team is not in playoff contention, hope the pro team is tanking enough to land a big-time college player.
This year is much different. NBA fans are eager to get their hoops fix.

Speaking of which, what rhymes with Drummond?
