BEST NAMES

There’s only 16 teams left in the NCAA tournament, but still some pretty memorable names around the bracket. Check ‘em out:

Buzz Williams, Marquette coach. Has the hair to match.

Shaka Smart, VCU coach. Hard-to-forget name is going to be heard a lot for some of the bigger jobs out there.

Jimmer Fredette, BYU guard. His first name has become a noun, a verb and an adjective.

Kawhi Leonard, San Diego State. The player whose first name sounds like a Hawaiian island is a stud.

MoMo Jones, Arizona guard. OK, so his real name is Lamont. We just like saying MoMo.
