Hoosiers or Losers?

I’m not going to lie, I picked Indiana to win it all in my bracket this year. Did I want to pick them? not exactly. They are certainly not invincible. They played way to close for comfort last week when they only beat Temple by six points, but it was a lot closer than that. They lost to Winsconsin twice this year, who didn’t even make it out of the first round in this years tournament. Don’t get me wrong, I love Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller, but I love the way Sryacuse has been playing in the last two games more. Their offense has been scorching hot and their defense hasn’t been too bad either. Yes they have been inconsistent throughout the season, but they picked a right time to get hot, and who doesn’t want to cheer for a school who has an Orange for their mascot? exactly. Michael Carter-Willams is a much better player than he puts on. He could be a star, but I think he just needs to relax and play his game and let everything else fall into place. You know who else could be a star? James Southerland. Have you seen that guy shoot lately? He’s beyond deadly from the 3 point strike and I expect that to continue tonight. I’m not saying Indiana is going to lose tonight, but I’m certainly not saying they are going to win either.

Enjoy the game guys, It’s going to be a good one.
