Can you name a single college basketball player?

March Madness is in full swing and everybody is loving the NCAA tournament.

The buzz about filling out your bracket and seeing how long you stay perfect, the sheer amount of shock upsets, last second buzzer beaters and star performances make the competition unlike any other on the face of the earth.

And so naturally near enough everybody with the access to social media fancies themselves as a college basketball expert and wastes no time in giving their insight and top notch opinion on the state of Harvard's backcourt.

But the thing is, how much do these people actually know about?

Well that's exactly what late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel was wondering. And fortunately for us, the comedian sent a crew member out on to the street to firstly ask random people if they were enjoying the tournament.

Everybody shown in the VT said yes. Of course they did. 

But then there was a follow up question some were hoping didn't expose their lack of knowledge about the game....Name one - just one - college basketball player.

Of all participants shown in the video only one could name a player, Julius Randle. And even that guy got the name of the team Randle plays for wrong.

Check out the truly dismal attempts in the video above. The crazy lady at the end is by far our favourite.
