Jets players with alma maters in the NCAA Tournament

March Madness is upon us and everyone across the country is filling out their brackets, trying to find that big upset — No. 14 seed UC Santa Barbara and No. 13 Furman are good places to start. So why not take a quick look at the Jets roster and see which players have their schools represented in this year’s NCAA Tournament? We’ll start with two key members in the middle of the defense from the tournament’s overall No. 1 seed.

No. 5 Duke

CB Michael Carter II

LS Thomas Hennessy

OG Laken Tomlinson

It’s still so weird seeing Duke being coached by someone other than Mike Krzyzewski, but Jon Scheyer is off to a great start in Durham, N.C. and Carter, Hennessy and Tomlinson have to be thrilled with Duke’s chances in this tournament.
