Weekend Games to Watch!

Hello everyone! In case you haven't noticed, basketball is already in full force, and I have some games this week, that are definately worth tuning in to:

 @
2:00 PM EST SATURDAY

Well, if you like watching online this will be a great game to see. I honestly don't see why this game isn't on television. It will be interesting to see how Louisville plays without Peyton Siva, he is listed as doubtful after spraining an ankle. Let's see if Butler can come back after a loss at a good Evansville team. Siva isn't the first player to miss a game because of an injury this year. Junior Guard Mike Marra went down Sunday Night against Lamar, giving him a season ending injury.

Predicted Result: UofL:
67 Butler: 61

 @
6:30 PM EST SATURDAY

Vanderbilt dropped a game to Cleveland State last week, how will they respond to an ACC opponent on the road. Now don't get me wrong, North Carolina State certainly doesn't have the talent Duke, North Carolina, and Florida State do, but they will still have a hostile environment that Vandy will have to deal with.

Predicted Result: Vanderbilt:
78 NC ST: 69

 @
4:00 PM EST SUNDAY

Don't get be wrong, Iowa is NOT a tournament team yet. But NOBODY in the big team should sleep on this team in a game. They are tough, and they will be a team to watch out for to make a run to the NIT. They return most of their players and gain a couple too. I believe the Big 10 is the DEEPEST Conference in the Nation, not saying their the best, but their teams are better top to bottom than the other conferences in my opinion. Now to Creighton. Creighton is a tournament team for sure, and this is one of the many games they have coming up that they can prove themselves. They have the POTENTIAL to be a Top 25 team, but they have to get past a worthy Major Conference team first.

Predicted Result: Creighton: 61 Iowa: 54

FINAL Final Four Rankings

Sweet Sixteen:

Well it's been a long ride. Ups and downs, ins and outs, and here we are. The Final Sixteen Teams have been decided. 
By Region here they are:

Ohio State
Kentucky
Marquette
North Carolina

Duke
Arizona
Connecticut
San Diego State

Kansas
Richmond
VCU
Florida State

Butler

Wisconsin
Brigham Young
Florida

Teams in BOLD made the Sweet Sixteen last year. 

2 of those teams made the Final Four last year. 


1.Kansas Jayhawks - Once a difficult region to get out of, now the easiest one to get through. They play a 12 Seed in the sweet sixteen, and will play an 11 or 10 seed in the Elite Eight.

2.Duke Blue Devils - Last years champions. They have to be a favorite at this point. They still have some really good teams to get through, but they have the best Coach in the Land.

3.Ohio State Buckeyes - They destroyed George Mason. If they get past Kentucky, they will play UNC or Marquette. If they play like they did in the 2nd Round, nobody will beat them.

4.Brigham Young Cougars - We were all counting them out after they lost Davies, and now here they are, the highest seed left in their Region. They also destroyed Gonzaga who many people thought would beat them.

5.Connecticut Huskies - We saw how they finished the season in the Big East, can they ride that momentum?

6.North Carolina Tar Heels - Another team playing very well. Not giving them the Marquette game, but they have a better chance against them than Syracuse.

7.Wisconsin Badgers - They played great against Kansas State. I don't see why we should doubt them at this point.

8.San Diego State Aztecs - Their in the west, but I don't think their as good as the other top teams left in their region.

9.Butler Bulldogs - Here we are again, out of the blue, Butler beating one seeds, and back in the Sweet Sixteen, with a good chance to get to the Final Four.

10.Florida Gators - Another good team in the SouthEast. Four of the Ten teams are in the Southeast. You know what that means? Close games, upsets, nobody knows for sure who will come out of it.

Butler vs. Davidson

Ronald Nored will feel the pressure at Davidson.
Watch CBS Videos Online

Davidson vs. Butler

This is the most critical game of the remainder of their schedules, a win could get them into the the big dance, a loss could kill their chances, and put them outside of the bubble. Butler on a skid losing to teams some people have never heard of, Davidson the same. Basically, this is the biggest bubble game this weekend or the rest of the season.

Who will win?

They both won't have anymore games to help their resume. Butler is 22-4 and 13-3 in conference play. Davidson is 22-5 and 15-2 in conference play.

Davidson is an 11 seed in Danthemans bracketology and Butler is a 10 seed.
