2013 NCAA Tournament Bracket: West Region Sweet 16 Predictions Video
No. 9 Wichita State vs. No. 13 LaSalle
Yes, this match-up is happening and yes the winner of this match-up is advancing to the Elite 8. If you were to tell anyone before the start of this tournament or even at any point in this season for that matter, there wouldn’t have been much support for either of these teams making this run to the Elite 8.
However, that’s what great about March Madness. LaSalle got past Ole Miss in the third round on a “Southwest Philly Floater” by Tyrone Garland and believe it or not the Explorers have gone from the First Four Round to two wins away from the Final Four.
No. 2 Ohio State vs. No. 6 Arizona
Okay, so this match-up makes a little more sense and boy is it going to be a good one. Arizona features a good balance of youth and veteran leadership and after blowing out a pair of potential Cinderella’s, the time is now for them to step up to their competition.
Ohio State on the other hand, blew out Iona before barely escaping Iowa State at the buzzer. If you missed it, you need to check it out the ending from that game. Aaron Craft buried a game-winning 3-pointer with 0.2 seconds remaining to put the Buckeyes in the Sweet 16.
Craft’s defensive ability will be huge against Mark Lyons of Arizona and that will prove to be the biggest key in this one. Ohio State is on to the Elite 8.
No. 2 Ohio State vs. No. 9 Wichita State
The Shockers have had an incredible run here in the 2013 NCAA Tournament, but that run ends at the hands of the Buckeyes in this one. Ohio State is too disciplined and will prove too much for the Shockers. Albeit, Wichita State head coach Gregg Marshall will certainly have his team prepared and ready to go, the Buckeyes will be just too much. Send Ohio State back to the Final Four for a second consecutive year.
