Ahead of Michigan'sfirst-round game, coach John Beileinlikely stressed the importance of stopping star guard JawunEdwards and—wait, who is that again?
Friday's slate got off to a rough start, as the NCAA somehow botchedthe name of Oklahoma State's best player,JawunEvans, in the box score. Evans is the leading scorer and assist man for the Cowboys, averaging19.0 points and 6.2 assists per game.
No disrespect to someguy out there namedJawun Edwards, wherever he may be, but we are slightly more interested in Evans for the purposes of this game.

CBS analyst Doug Gottlieb also had a tough time withMuhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman. Perhaps he was thinking of former Vancouver Grizzlies swingman ShareefAbdur-Rahim? Maybe?

To make matters worse, someone also got confused with the graphics, putting an Oklahoma logo next to Oklahoma State's name on a courtside screen.
What a joke... Great job by someone here. This is what happens when you're lazy at your job. pic.twitter.com/YpLpHSkzOZ— Matt Fletcher (@matt_fletch) March 17, 2017
Time to use this as motivation.
No one believes in us! It's just about the guys in this locker room! Not the media or proofreaders or people who take that extra second to make sure you aren't next to the logo of your biggest rival! We're in this together!
