Let the brackets commence!

| | Comments (0)

I have to admit that I was a little surprised to see Syracuse nab a 3 seed. I thought for sure that they'd be a 4 or 5 (I thought the UConn game pushed them up to 4), and that as a result, they have to be in the North Carolina bracket, since they try to avoid interconference matches before the regional finals. They were in that bracket anyway, to my surprise, but with a road that feels a little more doable--in some ways, though, Oklahoma could be a tougher match, assuming they make it that far. Griffin is an inside scorer and a rebounder who could quickly thin out the back line of the 2-3 with foul trouble, if SU's not careful.

But it's not out of the realm of possibility to ride Syracuse for 3 or 4 rounds--if you'd asked me a month ago if that were possible, I would have laughed at you. Now I'm cautiously optimistic. I wish that the current lineup had one more year in em, bc I think this group could compete for the final 4 with a little more experience and polish, but I doubt that Flynn will stay another year. So fingers crossed for this year.

And if you're looking to show off your predictive prowess, then bring it on over to Yahoo.

That is all.
