Atlanta Hawks general manager Travis Schlenk joined The Morning Show with John Fricke and Hugh Douglas on Tuesday to talk about the team going down the stretch and the NCAA Tournament.

Schlenk said he’s seen all the No. 1 teams in the tournament besides Virginia and he would go with a team that has the best guard play like a team like Villanova and Virginia, who can control pace. He’s seen Kansas play and is surprised at how high they are ranked because they don’t have the depth.

As far as a dark horse, Schlenk said the Michigan Wolverines, which means they’ll be “done in the first round.”

Turning back to the Hawks, Schlenk said it’s been tough down the stretch as far as injuries with Kent Bazemore being sidelined. Damion Lee will be called up from the G-League to get his shot.
