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

10 Teams most likely to make it to the Final Four

Week 16
I will post my rankings here every week or so. I will submit my poll to the UTEA and OSUBuckeyeFan is going to put together an accumulative ranking of teams based on everyone's rankings. Just go here and you can sumbit your own rankings! Thank You!

1.Pittsburgh - Has 2 losses in a completely loaded Big East, there only other loss is Tennessee. This team is for real.

2.Ohio State - They need to avoid another loss this weekend. Is this Thad Matta's year?

3.Texas - The four losses concerns me, but becides the one slip-up in Big 12 play, they have been stellar.

4.Notre Dame - Barely beat Providence. An experienced team with an underrated coach. It would be better if they could do without the close games, but at least they can win them.

5.Kansas - A well rounded team with a really good coach, do they have enough tournament experience? I say yes.

6.Brigham Young - He is this year's Stephen Curry, only BYU has a better all around team. Look out for them in the tournament.

7.Duke - They are probably better than this, but they haven't proved it to me.

8.Florida - Can they win on the road? We will find out today, against a struggling Kentucky team.

9.Louisville - I have watched them play several times, and when their playing well, they are almost impossible to beat, times like this make it far in the tournament.

10.Purdue - My hoosiers couldn't save me from doing this. They went to probably the most hetic environment of the year and held of a vengeful IU team. They beat OSU and Wisconsin. They have never proven they could do anything in the tournament, will they this year?

Teams to Watch:
St. John's
Wisconsin
Connecticut
Villanova
Syracuse
San Diego State

Elite 8 Rankings and Predictions

 Ranking the Elite 8:


 1. Louisville Cardinals: It took them 2 Rounds to heat up, but when they heat up, usually the team their playing is dead meat. The could've easily beaten Arizona by 50. They didn't because they started subbing halfway through the second half, usally a team up by 30 with Ten to go and already subbing would only win by 10, they won by 39. They look like the best team in the nation, they are the best team in the nation.

2.  North Carolina Tar Heels:  It's going to mess up my bracket if they get to the final, but if Louisville and North Carolina make it to the final, it mught be better than last years Championship.

 

3. Villanova Wildcats

4. Oklahoma Sooners

5. Connecticut Huskies

6. Michigan State Spartans

7. Pittsburgh Panthers

8. Missouri Tigers

 

 

Connecticut 97 vs. Missouri 85

Louisville 84 vs. Michigan State 75

North Carolina 89 vs. Oklahoma 86

Villanova 81 vs. Pittsburgh 76

Bracketology (1-4 seeds)

                        1 Seeds
East                 Uconn
West                Louisville           
Midwest          North Carolina
South               Pittsburgh


                        2 Seeds
East                 Oklahoma
West                Memphis
Midwest          Duke
South               Kansas


                         3 Seeds
East                  Michigan State
West                 Missouri
Midwest           Villanova
South                Marquette


                         4 Seeds
East                  Wake Forest
West                 Purdue
Midwest           Clemson          
South                Washington



5 Key points:

  1. Okay, so even after a bad loss Pittsburgh stays as a 1 seed. Lucky for them Oklahoma lost to Kansas the night before moving Oklahoma to a 2 seed and Kansas to a 2 seed also.
  2. Missouri getting extremely close to a 2 seed and it wouldn't suprise me if they made a run for a one seed late in February and early March.
  3. Washington continues its climb and they remain the top of the Pac 10. Marquette moves from a 2 seed to a low 3 seed since my last bracketology.
  4. Louisville moves into a 1 seed for the first time.
  5. Memphis isn't going to get a one seed unless a good team or two seriously plumits. Why, beacause of their confernce. They have no competition in their conference and didn't beat a high quality team in the non-conference season.
