The Past and The Future: Looking at the Mavs Alma Mater’s
A majority of the Dallas Mavericks players have seen their time playing college basketball in the NCAA. With that, many of the Mavs Alma mater’s are still alive in the March Madness tournament.
The NCAA March Madness tournament is one of the most exciting events in sports every year. As teams battle in a win or go home style 64-team tournament to see who is the best team in college basketball, it really doesn’t get much better.
Over the past week, we have been talking a lot about potential draft picks from players that attend the teams competing in the tournament. Many of these players have looked excellent up to this point, while others have struggled finding their place against these teams who are fighting their hardest to stay alive in the tournament.
Obviously Dallas does not have the longest track record of finding great gems in the NBA Draft. Most of the picks have been traded away, wasted, or used as leverage to swing for veteran players. However, many of the players on the team were drafted into the league from their college days.
That being said, let’s take a look at where the Mavs college teams are currently in the NCAA postseason, and where they might meet up for a friendly rivalry down the road. Some teams have already been beaten, while others are still very much in the hunt for a national title.
