Espn no.8 Josh Green cut his final list to six schools. He gives his thoughts to Espn on each program. Villanova: "A great school. They have an extremely successful history, especially over the last few years, winning two national championships. They have a great coaching staff who are very good at developing the team and players and helping them get to the next level." UNLV: "An opportunity for me to be able to get back out on the court with my brother Jay again. This means a lot to me as he has helped me so much in my progression as a basketball player, and I'd love for us to win a Mountain West title and help keep the program getting better and better." UNC: "A program with amazing history and they are consistently successful both as a team, and also at developing players. Growing up as a kid it was my dream school, so it's very cool for me to be able to say I could have the opportunity to play there, and for Roy Williams." Kansas: "Also a school with a history of success, and they have had many good guards come through the school and achieve great things." Arizona: "They have been with me since the start. They have a great program and staff who have really developed players well and have been very successful every year in the Pac 12." USC: "They have already got about the best recruiting class in my age group, and will be a top team in 2019. Their program is very strong and I know I would come out a much better player."

Kentucky avoids being the first 5 seed to get upset by a 12 seed this year with its 78-73 win over Davidson. Kentucky dominated with 34 points in the paint to Davidson's 20 but Kentucky also went 0-for-6 from 3, ending a streak of 1,047 straight games with at least one made 3-pointer. The last time Kentucky didn't make a 3 was Nov. 26, 1988 vs Seton Hall. UNLV (1,040 straight) takes over the longest active streak with a 3-pointer.
