We’re in the middle of a pandemic, and haven’t found the cure for cancer . . . but someone at pored over the rosters of the teams in the NCAA’s March Madness tournament.

His mission?  To put together a list of the 26 players with the “BEST NAMES.”  It doesn’t sound like there were any specific qualifications . . . other than this writer thinking that they’re awesome names.

Here they are:

1a.  Rocket Watts, Michigan State

1b.  Nah’Shon “Bones” Hyland, Virginia Commonwealth . . . Bones would be the clear #1 choice, but nicknames are not included.

2.  Isaiah Poor Bear-Chandler, Wichita State

3.  Kofi Cockburn, Illinois

4.  Akok Akok, UConn . . . It’s pronounced “ah-Cook.”

5.  Coletrane Washington, Drexel

6.  Kuba Karwowski, Utah State . . . Look out for the 7-foot-2 Polish center.  It’s hard to miss him.

7.  Lök Wur, Oregon

8.  Jonathan Tchamwa Tchatchoua, Baylor . . . Here he is pronouncing his own name.  It actually sounds pretty much how it looks.

9.  Jonathan Kabongo, Virginia Tech

10.  Kamaka Hepa, Texas

11.  J.C. Tharrington, University of North Carolina, Greensboro

12.  Isaac Likekele, Oklahoma State

13.  Mitch Lightfoot, Kansas

15.  Colin Castleton, Florida

16.  Jamorko Pickett, Georgetown

17.  Josh Nickelberry, Louisville
