    Everything A Player Needs At March Madness

    Michael Culpo, senior guard for NCAA tournament underdog Long Island University-Brooklyn, told BuzzFeed he's bringing "only the essentials" on his five day trip to Columbus, OH. For a March Madness-bound basketball player, that means at least 8 pairs of game socks.

    "We don't play until Friday, but we leave on Tuesday and plan on being on the road at least until Sunday," says Michael Culpo, LIU-Brooklyn senior who's playing in his second straight NCAA tournament this week. 16 seeded LIU faces the #1 seed in their region Michigan State in their opening game as they attempt to pull off what's never been done before - a 16 seed defeating a 1 seed. Just in case the impossible happens on Friday, Culpo is packed for two games.

    This is everything LIU-Brooklyn guard and March Madness-bound Michael Culpo needs for five days on the road:

    1 pair of Adidas game shoes

    1 pair of Nike sneakers

    2 practice jerseys

    2 pairs of practice shorts

    2 game jerseys

    2 pairs of game shorts

    1 pair of casual dress shoes

    1 pair of jeans 

    1 nice shirt

    2 sets of warm-ups

    1 belt

    1 MacBook Pro

    At least 8 pairs of game socks

    Tons of underwear
