Fri. A.M. Hot Clicks: Melissa Santos; SI Swimsuit Models on March Madness

Friday March 25th, 2016

The Madness of March

We're down the Final 12 as Oregon, Kansas, Oklahoma and Villanova won last night. Duke had Kobe Bryant in its corner, but that wasn't enough to stop the Ducks. Coach K was not happy after the game and scolded an Oregon player in the handshake line. Or did he? Meanwhile in Louisville, Kansas' Perry Ellis scored 27 points and resparked the "how old is Perry Davis" debate. More important than all of that, however, is this quiz we took with SI Swimsuit models to see how well they know their March Madness mascots.

This Man Should Not Sit in Coach

Gotta feel bad for 7-foot-6 UC-Irvine center Mamadou N’Diaye, who was forced into a middle seat in coach on a flight with his team.

Kevin Durant and His High Tops

Can't tell if I love or hate KD's sneakers/boots. The neon orange isn't helping.

Lovely Lady of the Day

Gregg from Parts Unknown emailed me in late January with a request to feature Lucha Underground announcer Melissa Santos as LLOD. It's been two months but totally worth the wait (click for full-size gallery). 

What Was Yoenis Cespedes Thinking?

This may be the strangest play I've seen in my life.
