    But anywho, yea I'll do a breakdown of the game. Here's the only two facts you need to know about this game.

    1) Defense, defense, defense

    2) Game scoring in the 40's and 50's

    Basically it's who makes the least mistakes and executes offensively the best b/c we mirror each other so much in our game styles. We're both great defensive squads who pressure all day long. We are both halfcourt teams who don't really run much. We both have good front courts. They beat us in the backcourt and we beat them on the bench.

    It's a tough game to pick.
    I know, i never said they were all first round games.

    I'm really thinking Illinois, but i'll probably go with the safer pick in Southern. I'm not 100% that they'll get past VT, probably closer to 75%. If I was more sure of that then I would pick illinois, but it's too much of a risk.

    • VT is going to beat Illinois anyways... and Holy Cross might beat Southern Ill, also

        Holy Cross won't win, but I think whoever wins Illinois-VT can also beat Southern Illinois. So then again if i think they'll lose either way why not go illinois.

          As are a lot of anylysts right now, which I don't like. I hate flip floppers. Last week we "didn't deserve to get into the tourney" and now we're an "upset special" against one of the best teams in the ACC.

          What gives? I'm just happy to be in, and everything else is icing on top of the cake IMO. I don't want to say I won't be very disappointed if we lose to Va Tech, but I'm just so proud of what we've done this year.

            They'll need transition buckets to beat us, and those could be hard to come by.

                  What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
                  they get smoked.

                    Lunardi, Bilas, Digger, and Vitale all picked us I believe. I know Lunardi, Vitale, and Digger did, and I'm pretty sure Jay did as well.

                    That to me is a lot, especially after the bashing we took when we got in.

                    Nope, I bet on Duke already this year and won, so I'm going out on top in my bets this CB season! :D I'm confident Duke will lose but like I said, I'm 1-0 this year so I'd like to keep it that way.

                      Sweetness stop kidding yourself. It's going to be a bloodbath.

                        Just goes to show that the MAAC is dominant to the Big 12. Niagara is the safe pick, here.

                          It very well could be, but on paper it doesn't look like that.
