See that Mr.Bacon is excited about the match-up. So am I. Tip it up and lets go. Should be equalish teams...

The Battle of Dez Wells. Should be a fun week leading up to this game.

Both teams should be happy to play each other IMO. MD fading down the stretch and so easy to guard and figure out. Xavier has sucked since they lost Sumner. I've always respected Xavier's coach from afar (interested in Chris' thoughts on him as we always tend to value other coaches and undervalue our teams coaches) and I'd give them the edge because there will be less pressure on them and they're a more experienced tournament team.

Quick look I think the matchups will be:

Quentin Goodin - Anthony Cowan

Malcom Bernard - Melo Trimble

JP Macura - Kevin Huerter

Trevon Blueitt - Justin Jackson
Rashid Gaston - Damonte Dodd

Seeding aside, I think MD enters this game with minimal expectations Pete. This is a pick'em game vs.a respected program. Dont see MD feeling any more pressure vs wanting to advance.

I love Chris Mack as a coach. Great recruiter and even better X's and O'x/in-game coach. Inbounds execution plays are his specialty, and he is probably one of the best in the country in that regard. From what I have seen/read/heard about Turgeon, I would think Xavier has the coaching advantage.

I told myself that I wouldn't take MD to win even a single game in this tourney, but with Xavier missing its best player I may have to change that approach.

Great time at 6:50. Can't ask for much better.

 

KenPom has a 73-72 Xavier win. So basically a toss-up.

Last time we played Xavier we put a beat down on them. No reason Thur should be different. FSU is not the worst draw either

Xavier is top 30 in off rebounding and defensive rebounding. Terps likely get dominated on the boards. They better get hot from 3.

It's really not bait. As suspect as we are I think we are better. Turge rage meter only goes up that much more if we lose

Numbers are really close on Kenpom.

Wow, I'm not going to lie, I was nervous when Maryland wasn't named the 7-seed in the West region that somehow they weren't going to make it, especially after seeing Wisconsin start out with an 8-seed.

No way I'm picking Turg over Mack with a week to prepare. Terps fall in round one gents.
