Players With Massachusetts Ties in the NCAA Tournament

By Joe Parello (@HerewegoJoe)

Ok, we're a day late on this, but if you're looking for any kid with Massachusetts roots playing in the NCAA men's basketball tournament, we've got them all listed below for you. Note that these guys may be Massachusetts natives, or simply guys who prepped in the Commonwealth. Some, obviously, are both.

Also note that, while each of these former Bay State stars is on the team listed, you may not get to see each of them play. In some cases, like Newton native and Northwestern sophomore Aaron Falzon, that's due to injury, and in other cases, such as Purdue's Jacquil Taylor from Cambridge, it's just because they aren't yet a part of the usual rotation.

Anyways, without further ado, here are all the players with Massachusetts ties participating in the Big Dance. As always, if we've made an error or left somebody off, tweet me @HerewegoJoe.
