March Madness: Which Raiders Are Represented?

March. Madness. Is. Back.

The 2018 iteration of the NCAA Tournament officially kicks off Thursday morning; yes, I know the First Four games are already in process, but I'm talking about the final field of 64.

Whether you're a diehard college hoops fan, or you just like filling out a bracket for kicks, the Madness will be the talk of the town for the better part of the next month – the next two weeks in particular.

Like many of you, the Silver and Black will have a rooting interest in the tournament, and with 24 players represented by 16 schools, the Raiders alma maters will be represented in mass.

Let's take a look at which player's schools are involved in the tournament, and you can decide for yourself who you think is headed to the Final Four in San Antonio, Texas.

**UCLA lost to St. Bonaventure in the First Four round Tuesday night, but since they technically made the tournament, they're included in this list. *
