GREAT POTENTIAL MATCHUP WITH THIS BRACKET:
7)Texas vs. 10)SMU
Battle for the Lone Star State will remind fans of the old Southwest Conference days. Also a good coaching matchup between Texas' Rick Barnes and SMU's legendary coach Larry Brown
5)Ohio St vs. 12)Harvard
Battle between two of the better defensive teams in the nation.
1)Arizona vs. 9)OK St
Marcus Smart and OK St will be a tough 2nd round game for Zona. I wonder if star Freshman Aaron Gordon would guard Smart for most of the game.
3)Kansas vs. 6)UK
NBA scouts will be drooling if these two teams play. Andrew Wiggins vs Juluis Randle and James Young. Will Kansas have star big man Joel Embiid back by the 2nd round? SHould be very interesting
4)Cincinnati vs. 5)Ohio St.
It won't quite be Oscar Robertson vs. John Havlecik and Jerry Lucas but Sean Kilpatrick vs. Aaron Craft would pit one of the nation's best scorers in Kilpatrick against one the best defenders in the land in Craft.
2)Michigan vs. 3)Creighton
Doug McDermott is the best player in the nation. Michigan has two great players in Nik Stauskas and Glenn Robinson III. This could be a very fun game to watch with a lot of scoring.
2)Villanova vs. 3)Syracuse
Requiem for the Big East!!!! I think so. I would love to see these two teams go at it in NYC.
1)Florida vs. 2)Duke
Florida has Coach Billy Donovan, Duke has Coach K.
Florida has four experienced Seniors and a great shooting Soph in Michael Frazier, Duke has the most talented player in the country in Jabari Parker.
Florida has suffered three straight Elite 8 losses. Both teams have the talent to WIN IT ALL
1)Wichita St. vs. either 2)Louisville or 3)Kansas
Either way it will make for a great story line as the Wichita St. Shockers will have their unbeaten season tested with Louisville in a rematch of last year's thrilling Final Four game. Or they will face in state power Kansas for a chance to go to end up in Arlington, Texas in the Final Four.
