2013 NCAA Tournament Preview: No. 1 Gonzaga vs No. 16 Southern University

Since the birth of the planet of Earth a number 16 seed as never been able to pull off the unthinkable, beating a one seed in the NCAA Tournament. While there is always a first time for everything, it is hard to ever think this is going to happen. However, many people have iffy feelings towards the Gonzaga Bulldogs as being a number one, so in turn, they feel like if it is ever going to happen that is is going to be done to the Zags. The Southern University Jaguars are going to look to make history later today.

What to Watch For

Despite this game having the sense surrounding it of “History might happen”, I would not hold your breathe. Instead, I think you should be spending your time more wisely than investing it in a probable blowout.

There should be a few games ending when this game is starting. So I advise your eyeballs be watching the end of the other games. Also, better games will be on when the end of the others or over — again, watch those instead of this.


Did I do anything in the way to make you think this game would be close, because I think not. I would love to tell you all the reasons Southern has a chance, but my mother taught me never to lie (Unless it was for my benefit).
