2013 NCAA Tournament Bracket: South Region Sweet 16 Predictions Video
No. 1 Kansas vs. No 4 Michigan
It’s the battle of the heavyweights atop the South Region with No. 1 Kansas facing No. 4 Michigan. Kansas advanced to the Sweet 16 by way of defeating both No. 16 Western Kentucky and No. 8 North Carolina. Michigan on the other hand, dispatched No. 13 South Dakota State and then routed No. 5 VCU by 25 points.
There shouldn’t be any doubt that this Michigan and Kansas contest should be a battle. Keep an eye on the front court battle between Mitch McGary and Jeff Withey, but overall, this game should be decided along the perimeter.
The edge goes to the Wolverines in this one, simply because of the higher momentum that they are carrying forward into the Sweet 16 round.
No. 3 Florida vs. No. 15 Florida Gulf Coast
It’s Cinderella time! Florida Gulf Coast has stolen the show of the NCAA Tournament, becoming the seventh 15th seed all-time to upset a No. 2 seed, pretty much routing Georgetown on Friday. Then the Eagles kept things going, becoming the first No. 15 seed in NCAA Tournament history to make the Sweet 16. This team just has swagger, but they are matching up against a veteran and well-prepared Florida Gators squad in the Sweet 16.
The Gators knocked off No. 14 Northwestern State and No. 11 Minnesota, so this is the third double-digit seed that they will play to begin tournament play. It’s so tough to predict just what Florida Gulf Coast will do next, but let’s credit the Gators in this one as Florida moves onto another Elite 8.
No. 3 Florida vs. No. 4 Michigan
The key match-up in this contest is going to be Florida forward Erik Murphy. A senior who can stretch the court and make perimeter jump shots will be a problem for Michigan. Trey Burke will have to deal with a loaded Florida back court, so this one should surely come to down to perimeter production. Florida however, will advance to the Final Four.
