Detroit Pistons: Evan Mobley is having a strong tournament

The NCAA Tournament is a useful tool to evaluate players, as teams get to see how they respond on the big stage on national TV with tons of pressure.

For some players, it is the first time they’ve played against elite competition, so scouts get to see how they hold up against other talented players.

But we can’t take too much from a one and done tournament, as sometimes players have off games at the wrong time or have teammates that don’t step up, as was the case with Cade Cunningham and Oklahoma State.

Should Cunningham be dinged because his teammates weren’t very good? Does he take the hit for his team’s early exit?

On the opposite side, Evan Mobley’s USC Trojans just dismantled a very good Kansas team and now look like a dark horse to win the whole tournament.

Mobley has played very well in the two games, adding another 10 points, 13 rebounds, five assists and three blocks while showing his tantalizing all-around skills.

Mobley is now onto the Sweet-16 and will get at least one more game to showcase his skills to NBA scouts. Will this be enough to vault him to the number one overall pick?

Either way, the Detroit Pistons will be interested, as he might be the best fit of any player in the top-ten.
