The 2015 NCAA Tournament All-Name Team

Things are about to get super serious in the world of college basketball, with 68 teams readying to battle for their places in history in the 2015 NCAA Tournament.

So, to lighten up the mood during your pre-tourney bracket crunching session, we thought we'd share with you the five most head-scratching and awesome player names in this year's Big Dance.

Ladies and gentlemen, here's your 2015 NCAA Tournament All-Name Team!!!

G Lourawls "Tum Tum" Nairn, Michigan State

Mixing and matching a first-name homage to legenary singer Low Rawls -- a crooner that Frank Sinatra once gushed as having "the classiest and silkiest chops in the singing game" -- and a nickname copped from the movie 3 Ninjas just screams BEAST, doesn't it?

G Scoochie Smith, Dayton

Scoochie's from the Bronx, which makes him 1000 times better than Jenny from the block. I've never had a friend named Scoochie, which just means I haven't lived worth a damn.

Plus, this picture is a desktop screensaver waiting to happen.

G Parker U'u, San Diego State

The sophomore walk-on's two-letter name means "to hold something." We just thought U'u should know that.

(Also, we couldn't find a good picture of Parker. He's not actually green, nor does he live in a garbage can.)

F Basil Smotherman, Purdue 

This sounds like either the worst cocktail at a high-end Manhattan bar, or the superhero who smells of spaghetti and.....we'll just stop there.

F BillyDee Williams, West Virginia


We always get the two mixed up.
