An in­ter­na­tional game

The Denver Post - - SPORTS -

New Mex­ico State and Bay­lor will take March Mad­ness all over the world. Their NCAA Tour­na­ment game Fri­day will fea­ture 10 play­ers who were born out­side of the United States. New Mex­ico State has seven of them, and its coach, Paul Weir, is from Toronto. France, Ivory Coast, Kenya, In­dia, Aus­tralia, Bel­gium, South Su­dan, Ethiopia and Canada all will be rep­re­sented by birth or her­itage when the two teams take the court. More than half of the 68 teams in the NCAA Tour­na­ment had at least one player from an­other coun­try on their ros­ters at the start of the sea­son. The As­so­ci­ated Press
