More March Madness– 5 bold predictions for this weekend

It’s the second week of the tournament so we are about to find out who will advance to Dallas for the Final Four.

1.)    The Big Ten will have at least two teams in the final four: Whether it is MSU, Michigan, or Wisconsin, two of these teams will advance to Dallas. If I had to bet money on it, I would put my money on the Wolverines and Spartans. Wisconsin will have a tough matchup against either a dangerous SDSU squad or Arizona.

 

2.)    Kentucky will beat Louisville: Let’s be honest. The Harrison twins will determine how far UK goes this weekend, but they looked spectacular against a very good Wichita State team. Kentucky has the frontcourt to match Louisville’s Montrezl Harrell. Russ Smith and Chris Jones will be the key for the Cards, but Calipari has owned Rick Pitino since arriving in Lexington.

 

3.)    UConn will beat Iowa State: The Cyclones lost star forward Georges Niang to a foot injury and UConn is playing its best basketball right now. UConn’s defense will be too much for the Cyclone’s to handle. Look for DeAndre Daniels to have an effect as well in the frontcourt.

 

4.)    The winner of UVA-MSU will play for the national title: UVA plays some of the best defense in the nation but their lack of offense at times could cause them to fall to the MSU tomorrow. Regardless, I think this will be the best matchup of the entire sweet 16 games. I imagine UVA will try and slow down Adreian Payne, but MSU has all kinds of weapons on offense outside of Payne.

 

5.)    Dayton to the Final Four: Why not? The Flyers are legit and have the frontcourt to match either UCLA or Florida. The Flyers also shoot the 3 ball well. I might be losing my mind here but I think Dayton can do it. Stay tuned.
