Re: NCAA Tournament: Dayton, Rhody & VCU

Dayton the biggest 6 seed underdog in over a decade. I know Wichita is good and Dayton lost their last two, but Dayton LOVES playing as an uderdog.

As of this morning URI was the team getting the highest percentage of spread bets. Hope their psycho coach can keep them focused, not believing their own hype. Creighton still ahs some good players even without Watson, but hopefully Rhody takes it to them.

VCU gets brutal draw with Jock Lonsdale and KenPom #1 4 St. Mary's. Pomeroy likes St. Mary's by 10, but Vegas only by 4.5 - rarely ever seen a difference like that except because of an injury. Gales are one of the best passing teams in the country and the #1 defensive rebounding % team. Hopefully Jequan can disurpt their ball handling and VCU can attack the rim over and over and over. Gonzaga got into the paint at will against them all three games (granted, that's a really good Gonzaga team) and the Zags' PF had a big game all three times, so I'm looking for Tillman to step up and for Johnny Williams to muscle his way to the basket.

Hate having to play two mid-majors and a glorified MVC team, but I believe we can get a couple of upsets.

I'm thinking much of what you have said. URI has the best matchup of the 3 A10 teams. Dayton/Wichita is about as diabolical a move by the NCAA as they could pull off. VCU needs to establish Havoc early and often.

Good luck to those still playing.

I have watched St Mary's quite a bit this year. Not sure full court pressing will work all that well. They protect the ball. I think it is more about pushing pace and attacking the glass on offense. Speed hurts the Gaels. Getting Landale their tree like center in foul trouble or uncomfortable is important. They remind me a bit of UVA with their pace and D. They have better 3 point shooters than UVA. It will be a interesting game to watch.

I have VCU winning. Mo and Tillman will cause problems for their bigs. I wasn't impressed when I watched them at the Arena. That was back when Sam Miller was starting and the Flyers were in the game despite playing really shitty.
