Briefly glancing at the games both tonight and Friday night,
the lower seeds may have a chance (and I repeat may) to at least hang with the upper seeds remaining in the 2015 NCAA Tournament.
Starting with the Cleveland Regional,
Can Ron Baker, Fred Van Fleet, and Tekele Cotton control the pace against Jerian Grant, Patrick Connaughton and the rest of the Fighting Irish?
Come game two, West Virginia plans to press full court. Will Kentucky buckle and make a bunch of missed shots? If that happens, the Mountaineers must make this game a track meet to at least stay in it.
Cincinnati stayed primarily in a half-court set, and it only worked for about 17 to 18 minutes. The other key is getting to the free-throw line.
In steamy hot Los Angeles:
Without Kennedy Meeks, the Tar Heels will have to play a perfect game to dethrone Wisconsin. Likewise, Xavier does not have a deep enough bench to thwart off Arizona’s key threats at the guard positions.
Look for Duke and Gonzaga to have field days inside the paint.
And will the luck of Gang Green finally strike midnight against Tom Izzo? These should be some interesting games. I will blog about the key action when the last game on TBS reaches the final buzzer.
Enjoy the games, everybody.
