    I just hope UM can keep it interesting with the national audience watching and Jaylen Brown in the house. Making the tourney next year could come down to whether we get Brown or not. Just like Booker last year. If Booker chose UM instead of UK, we would all be talking about what seed we are going to be in this year’s NCAA.
