Has everyone enjoyed their weekend of no Knicks? The NCAA Tournament finishes up it’s first week of action on Sunday. Who will make the Sweet Sixteen? Will any of them become Knicks in the future? Something-something-something triangle offense? These are just some of the things to explore!
And, hey, if you see a guard you like, head on over to check if he has already been profiled by our own Stingy.

While watching this game — which should be a humdinger — make sure you read up on super-prospect Malik Monk. Our own Matt Miranda profiled him this weekend. It’s quite good! Also, if the Shockers happen to win, make sure you all congratulate Wichita State alum Ron Baker on Twitter.

Stingy, on South Carolina’s first-round hero, Sindarius Thornwell - Another top ten name. Thornwell can fill it up. Good size and length, should be able to score on the next level. Questions will be about his ability to defend and whether he should be putting the ball on the deck. Which he likely will want to do a good deal of. That may stand in his way when Phil Jackson and Co. assess him. He is, however, a four year player, and I think that will work in his favor. The Zen Masturbator likes ‘em fully grown.
