For Nets players and coaches, NCAA bringing joy and sadness

New, comments

Sorry, Joe Harris

Brooklyn Nets

March is even fun in the NBA. While the players have moved onto the next level of their game, it’s always a joy to see how NBA players react to their alma maters and recent teammates (for some) fight to do the improbable.

With eight of the Sweet 16 already set and the remainder being fought over Sunday, we look at the colleges of the Brooklyn Nets players and coaches and see who’s got bragging rights in the March Madness tournament. And who doesn’t. Again, sorry, Joe.

Sorry to those who didn’t get to participate. So who’s going to be glued to their seats Sunday? Assistant coach Jordan Ott will want to watch his Michigan State Spartans go up against the Syracuse Orangemen at 2:45 p.m. ET.

In the meantime, Milton Doyle will no doubt be willing to share his memories of Sister Jean.
