Buddy Hield Has Owned The 2016 NCAA Tournament

Buddy Hield has absolutely dominated the 2016 NCAA Tournament. The Oklahoma senior guard has taken March Madness and made it his own, scoring from all over the court and propelling the Sooners to their first Final Four since 2002.

We all knew Hield could be a juggernaut offensively but during the tournament, with his college career on the line, he has taken things to another level.

Hield pumped in 27 points during Oklahoma’s opening-round win over CSU Bakersfield, dropped 36 on VCU in the second round, “only” had 17 against Texas A&M in the Sweet 16, then had 37 against Oregon in the Elite Eight. Through four games, Hield is averaging a ridiculous 29.3 points per game. If he keeps that average up, it would be the third-highest scoring average in NCAA tournament history for a player participating in at least five games.

Here’s a quick video review of what he did against Oregon:
