The latest edition of March Madness is underway and many of the expected top prospects for the NBA have been in action. Here's a look at how the top five potential draft prospects did so far.

1

Zion Williamson - Duke Blue Devils

Williamson continues to receive the spotlight whenever the Blue Devils are in action. That was clearly the case in his team's 85-62 win over NDSU on CBS. Still, he had the highlights and points to show why. Zion finished with 25 points on 12-for-16 shooting as well as three rebounds a steal and a block. However, his highlights showed impressive dunk power, the skills to keep control of the ball, and even the ability to knock down a three.

2

Ja Morant - Murray State Racers

Morant's been labeled the No. 2 pick, so far, but now there are those people who believe he can possibly go first. The Murray State star achieved the tourney's first triple-double since 2012 in his team's "upset" win over Marquette. Morant finished with 17 points, 16 assists, and 11 rebounds to lead the way to the 83-64 win.
