March Madness is here again! As everyone checks and re-checks their NCAA tournament brackets, trying analyze and guess who will win each and every game on the way to the national championship, one player you might not think of may be in the final game—and have a big impact on the play on the court.
Draper is proud to have EZ-Fold backstops be part of many of this year’s tournament teams, including three of this year’s number one seeds. We may not be on the final rosters, but we are an important player who has contributed to the teams’ success. We might not be on the floor for the championship game, but we have been with these teams and others since the first day of practice.
Draper EZ-Fold backstops are used by the number one overall seed and undefeated Wildcats of Kentucky in their Joe Craft Practice Center. Another number one seed, Villanova’s Wildcats, also practice on Draper backstops at their Davis Athletic Center. Duke’s Blue Devils played every home game on EZ-Fold backstops at Cameron Indoor Stadium on their way to earning a number one seed. With three of the four top seeds playing on Draper EZ-Fold backstops, there is a good chance that at least one of our teammates will be there for the championship game in Indianapolis.
In addition to three top seeds, Draper EZ Fold Backstops are also in use by the number two seeded Arizona Wildcats and number three seeded Oklahoma Sooners in their practice gyms. The number eight seed Oregon Ducks, number nine seed Purdue Boilermakers, and number 10 seed Indiana Hoosiers are also our teammates, practicing on Draper basketball backstops.
With so many Draper teams in this year’s field, including three of the very best, we like our chances of getting to nearby Indianapolis for the championship game. When a Draper team cuts down the nets, we will be proud to know that we helped them get there.
