2013 NCAA Tournament: Midwest Region Second Round Preview
It’s go time.
The top overall seed in the entire 68 team field resides in the Midwest Region, but for this round we don’t need to talk about Louisville very much.
The 8/9 game below them, well that’s a different story. We will see if Colorado State can slow down Missouri’s perimeter advantage and find a way to stop a Tigers’ lineup that features six players who average in double figures. This one you don’t want to miss.
Creighton and Cincinnati are sure to provide tons of excitement, as Doug McDermott squares off against a Bearcats’ perimeter that needs to score if they have any chance to upset the Bluejays.
Duke looks to avenge its loss to a 15 seed from last year, so here’s to hoping the Blue Devils can advance past Albany on Friday.
The top two match-ups in this region however are from the 5/12 match-up and the 6/11 contest.
Oregon was virtually snubbed with its seeding and despite winning the Pac-12 Tournament title; they were listed as a 12-seed. Let’s see if the Ducks have something to prove when they take on an Oklahoma State squad that has a few NBA caliber play makers.
In the 6/11 match-up Memphis will take on Saint Mary’s in what should certainly be a game to watch. The Tigers have been hot since the New Year, but that’s because they were playing in Conference USA. We’ll see what they’re really made of right out of the gate.
Don’t forget to also keep tabs on the 3rd-seeded Michigan State and 4th-seeded Saint Louis in their second round match-ups.
