It’s just simple arithmetic: There are going to be more Guys than there are actual Dudes in the NCAA Tournament. The Dudes will go on to make some money playing basketball, in the NBA or in Europe or in Asia or possibly in picaresque White Men Can’t Jump hoops-hustler scenarios. The Guys, who are good enough to remember but maybe not quite good enough to make their livings in the game, will go on to become Guys. Most everyone you are watching in this tournament is a Guy. Maybe you will remember them some March in the future and spend a moment in pleasant reverie. “Ah yes,” you’ll think, “I remember that guy.”
