Jim Stoudt with CBS/MaxPreps on the smaller/lesser known schools making noise in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament with kids like Ike Nwamu(Westchester Country Day/Mercer) and schools like Mercer, Dayton, Steven F. Austin and others stepping up….

These David vs Goliath upsets are not really as big as people make them out to be. There are a million great players out there every year in high school. Many land with elite programs but many do not.

Some blossom later in their careers, others are simply overlooked, fall through the cracks but ultimately land somewhere.

Unbeknownst to the average fan, whether people have heard of these players at small schools or not, the fact is the kids have been playing against each other for years well before college and all know each other in most cases.

It’s just another game really, albeit on a bigger stage at this point.
