March Madness Breakdown

To start, I feel the selection committee did a fantastic job in selecting Michigan State as a number 1 seed. After winning the Big 10 conference tournament against Ohio State, 8th-ranked Michigan State really deserved a number one seed. If 7th-ranked Ohio State won that game, the Buckeyes would have most likely stolen that #1 seed from Michigan State.

Upset Alert: #13 New Mexico State v. #4 Indiana – Viewers should keep an eye open for a New Mexico State upsetting Indiana. New Mexico State is coming of a solid 26-9 season, and a WAC conference championship, and Indiana has been very inconsistent this season.

The Gators, coming off a 1-4 end to the season, is facing an equally struggling Cavaliers team.

Key Matchup:  #7 Florida v. #10 Virginia – Look out for this ACC-SEC matchup; the game should be action packed with some quality basketball and what should be a close game.

Another Key Matchup: #3 Baylor v. #14 South Dakota State – Both of these teams have 27-7 records. Baylor is definitely placed on upset alert for this game.

Suprise Seed: #6 Murray State – I’m sure all players, fans, and anyone associated with Murray State basketball believed that the 30-1 Racers deserved a higher seed. Their strength of schedule definitely played a role in their choice as a #6 seed, but it should not have brought them down that far.

Dark Horse: #11 NC State – After a long run in the ACC conference tournament, NC State looks to start March Madness with a possible upset against San Diego State.

Snub: Drexel – Drexel’s mid-season 19 game win streak, CAA regular season title, and a 2nd place finish in the CAA conference tournament was not enough to put the Dragon’s in the 68 team NCAA tournament field. This most likely angered Dragons fans.
