March Madness 2022: NBA Draft prospects who helped or hurt their stock during the NCAA Tournament

The first two weekends of the 2022 NCAA Tournament shined a spotlight on some of the brightest stars on the biggest stage in the sport with very real implications for this year’s NBA Draft. Fair or not, how players perform in March Madness can often significantly boost — or torpedo — prospects’ draft stock, and this year was no exception.

Some of the players helped themselves only marginally in terms of upward mobility — in part because there’s very little room to move up. Duke star Paolo Banchero is a great example of this. Already a lock to go top-five, his strong tourney showing has thrust him back into the conversation to potentially go No. 1 because of his passing, scoring and overall polish. Perhaps he played his way up a draft slot or two. Same goes for teammate Mark Williams, who already had lottery buzz but could potentially have played himself into the top-10 conversation.

Others saw their stock swing wildly one way or another. Tennessee guard Kennedy Chandler may have acquitted himself well enough to potentially be a top-20 prospect, a range that did not seem certain pre-tourney because of his smaller frame. Then there were players like Andrew Nembhard, the Gonzaga guard, who really struggled in Gonzaga’s Sweet 16 loss and may have seen his stock go the other way.

To break it all, we’ve got an updated stock watch on some key risers and fallers who helped and hurt their prospects in the first two weekends leading into the Final Four:

Now, after months of being considered more as a top two or three prospect, his stock seems to have come full circle thanks to a star-studded showing in this year’s tournament. Against Texas Tech and Arkansas in the Sweet 16 and Elite Eight, respectively — two of the top defenses…
