    Coolest Name Round Three

    The basketball team may be done playing, but the tournament isn't over yet! Bubu and Tavon both won with dominating victories over their opponents and have now reached the SWEET 16 in ESPN's Coolest Name contest.

    This week, 3 seed Bubu Palo goes up against 2 seed Jordair Jett while 8 seed Tavon Sledge takes on 4 seed Mogboluwaga Oginni. Winners advance to regional finals!!!

    From reading comments on the last round of competition, I found a lot of people are pulling for Jett, so Bubu NEEEEEEDS your vote!

    Here's the website, Fanatics! GET VOTING!

    Vote: Coolest name in NCAA tourney - SportsNation - ESPN

    Go State!!!

    Re: Coolest Name Round Three

    Yeah, I can't vote for Tavon against that guy. Bubo, though, is way cooler. Vote cast.

    I don't think I agree. I think for a name to be cool you have to be able to say it. Take Cashmere Wright for example, I think his name is going to be hard to beat. I definitely Sledge has his guy beat. Just my opinion.

    I want Sledge vs. Slaughter in the championship.

    Cool that ISU has 2 in the Sweet 16.

    Agree. I haven't heard all the names in this "tournament" very often -- some of the interesting-looking names aren't the same as audibly-good monikers.
