NCAA Tournament: Cindarellas Face New Stardom and Recruiting

A New York Times story on Ohio's D.J. Cooper who is trying to leads his Bobcats into another NCAA Tournament run after upsetting Michigan in the first round Friday.

Cooper's story is different from fellow Ohioan C.J. McCollum as Cooper had offers at high major programs coming out of high school but signed with Ohio because they recruited him the hardest.

Well his recruitment didn't stop once he reached Athens. After breaking out in a first round upset of Georgetown two years ago with 23 points, Cooper says many schools came calling again trying to lure him to a bigger spotlight. Cooper won't name any names, but his mother did mentioning Scott Drew of Baylor subtle (yet legal) attempts to have Cooper transfer.
