March Madness open thread and draft prospect list: Saturday, March 21

Friday didn't bring with it the unbridled Madness of Thursday, but it did feature some excellent performances from top NBA draft prospects and awe-inspiring performance by the Providence Friars, who made a total of two shots in the first 11:35 of their game against the Dayton Flyers (WOO CHRIS JOHNSON).

With the first round (yes, the round of 64 is the first round, don't you dare say differently) now over, things are gonna start getting real very quick. Favorites start meeting favorites and the teams with real staying power have to show their stuff or get ready for the long trek home.

Here's the list of prospects to keep an eye on as Saturday unfolds. Happy viewing, everybody! Be comforted that while you may find yourself watching many basketball games this afternoon, the Bucks are wholly incapable of losing any of them.
