First Four Games

Well, whether you agree with it or not, these 4 teams will be competing to get in the Final Field of 64. VCU, USC, UAB, and Clemson will be competing for those spots.

Here is our first matchup:

The 11 seed out of the Colonial Athletic Conference, VCU:

Virginia Commonwealth - This team has been hated upon for not deserving a spot in the tournament. Those who say that... are wrong. This team has 3 top 50 wins. They had 14 wins in an UNDERRATED conference. They have Old Dominion, George Mason, and VCU. This is a good team and they will be someone to watch.

The 11 seed out of the Pac 10, USC:

Southern California - Two dominant players in the post makes me wonder where this team has been all year. Well, it my be like they have 6 losses OVER the Top 100 in RPI. Pretty much horrific. Want to know why they got in? They have 5 top 50 wins.

USC 76
VCU 67

Now are second matchup:

The 12 seed out of Conference USA:

UAB - Okay, to be completely honest this team DOES NOT deserve to be here. That alone will hurt them... or motivate them. Will they be down because they think they took someones more deserving spot, or will it motivate them to prove themselves? The only decent team they have beaten is VCU.

Clemson - I think their backcourt will be the ultimate downfall for UAB. UAB will simply not be able to match up with Clemson. Clemson has a good control of the tempo. Clemson has better playing experience against better teams. Can they beat somebody? We'll see...

Clemson 56
UAB 41

Must wins today, and VT vs. Duke, big game for VT

vs.  Virginia Tech is playing at home against Duke, they are 17-10 and 706 in ACC play they are desperatly in need of a win, and if they could pull one out today they could be considered in a lock in the Big Dance.


Georgetown is doing terrible since they were in the Top 10. 5-10 in Big east play and 14-12 overall. If they lose their off the bubble no chance of making the tournament sorry. They have to win @ Nova to have any shot at the tourney, of course they could make a run for the Big Erast Title though.

USC is 16-11 and 7-8 in Pac 10 play. Their still on the bubble, but they must win today agsinst struggling Stanford. They have 3 great wins against Cal, Wash, and Zona. But lately they have been struggling and need to win this game to stay on the bubble.

Zona is 18-10, and 8-7 in Pac 10 play, they have lost two straight putting them on the bubble again. They need to win aginst another rankedd team today to help their cause or they could be heading for the wrong side of the bubble.
