The Utah Jazz continue to free fall in the NBA standings, setting the team up for a high lottery pick at the 2014 NBA Draft -- as well as for two more picks at Nos. 23 and 34 if the Jazz keep both of those.
Meanwhile, the NCAA Elite 8 concluded in grand fashion on Sunday, March 30.Three of four games went down to the wire, the most memorable being Wisconsin’s overtime upset of No. 1 seed Arizona. The Badgers continued an improbable run, knocking off the Wildcats with a three-point shooting 7-footer -- and stingy defense.
No. 8 Kentucky’s narrow win over No. 2 Michigan came in a close second -- as those Wildcats got the job done against the Wolverines without center Willie Cauley-Stein and with a fabulous freshmen cast that soon will be headed for the NBA.
Not all of the “winners” actually won during the Elite 8 -- but they did move up the draft boards, which is a win in and of itself. And the "losers" didn't necessarily lose -- but they probably lost favor to NBA scouts leading up to the draft.
Here's how they did at the NCAA Elite 8.
