#3 Marquette vs. #2 Miami 7:15pm CBS
The Hurricanes play great defense and have a chip on their shoulder from getting snubbed for a #1 seed. They will be tested against a very tough Marquette team and this could be the game of the Sweet 16. I love the Canes, but I am going with Marquette in a close one.
#6 Arizona vs. #2 Ohio State 7:47pm TBS
The Wildcats were my pick for the West before the tourney and I’m not changing it now. They will be pressed by the Buckeyes, but the Wildcats got the horses to win. They are a complete team and will move past the Buckeyes and into the Elite 8
#4 Syracuse vs. #1 Indiana 9:45pm CBS
Syracuse’s zone will give the Hoosiers some problems and I think this will be the toughest game for the Hoosiers in the tourney. That being said, the Hoosiers are the most complete team in the game today and they will get by the Orangemen.
#13 LaSalle vs. #9 Wichita State 10:17pm CBS
LaSalle lives and dies by their guard play and the Shockers use their bigs to muscle around. People are down on this game because it lacks big name flair, but it should be fun to watch. I think the LaSalle guards will be able to score points and keep the Wichita bigs away from the basket.
