Not so Big Monday!

Great weekend of college hoops! There is nothing we here at the Truth like more than all the hype that surrounds the March Madness. I loved watching teams like Kansas and Louisville show up this weekend and just take care of business. On the other hand, do North Carolina and Florida really think they can just show up for their conference tourney and the Big Dance and teams will just roll over? They need to start their winning now and create some momentum!

Sleeper picks for the tournament:

Winthrop- They have big guards, and experienced players. When our crack staff researched the minutes played by this team, it was noted that 7 seniors and 1 junior played the majority of the minutes. I will pick them to go the sweet sixteen, brackets unseen!

Appalachian State- They will battle with Davidson to see who gets in the tournament, but if they dance, they will show some moves. They are like Emslie, you think, "how can this big goof dance?" But then he hits the floor and is surrounded by nuggets as he pops his way across the floor. This team can play, and no one pays attention to them. They have a great cast of players and a high RPI.

UNLV- Not really a sleeper anymore. They will get a 7-8 seed or somewhere in that range. Don't be surprise if they win 2 games!

Santa Clara- If they get into the tournament by winning WCC conference tournament. They will cover in the first round and may even pull at 4 vs 13 upset. They are big, I mean Huge. They will slow the tempo, foul hard, and make free throws. Hope for the Broncos and points!

Tonight's board: Not a lot out there, let's be patient!

I will take a team making a run right now who really wants to get into the dance.

Syracuse +4 vs Georgetown. The Orangemen will pack it in a zone and dare Georgetown to beat them from the perimeter. The Hoyas just came off a big win against Pitt, and they will have a slight hangover from the House party in DC on Saturday that didn't end until Sunday night! I heard Kid N Play were there spinning some 80's tunes!

Interesting pick in Syracuse. I found myself thinking there is no way that Georgetown on talent alone should lose this game. But, senior night in syracuse, a team looking for a big win and winning 4 of 5 last games, taking syracuse is probably the right thing to do.
