What a weekend! If you picked most of the top seeds for your March madness brackets you are probably doing very well. The next round of the tournament starts on Thursday, but the most important story in the upcoming weeks is whether or not Daniel Hackett, DeMar DeRozan and Taj Gibson will return for another year. Here are the players answers to that question after the tough loss to Michigan State.
“I don’t know. Right now I just want to be around my teammates. It’s still up in the air.”
“I haven’t started to think about that. I’m very disappointed about this game. I’m very emotional.”
DeRozan said will meet with his family and Coach Floyd and “just look at everything.”
If the players do enter the draft, experts speculate that DeRozan could be a mid to high first rounder, Gibson a late first rounder or early second rounder and Hackett sometime in the second round.
