The opening weekend results– thanks to your votes– produced a handful of double- digit seeds winning their opening-round games, however all of those Cinderella dreams passed away in the second round: We didn’t have a single team greater than a 5-seed advance to the Sweet16 I’m a bit dissatisfied in you individuals for your absence of belief in the magic of March.
MISSING MARCH MADNESS: Playing out full schedule, scores for 2020 NCAA Tournament
Anyhow, now that we’re on to the Sweet 16 with primarily chalk results, we’re seeing plenty of heavyweight matches. Here are the results from the first 4 Sweet 16 games, which were played out through Twitter surveys on Thursday:
No. 1 Kansas over No. 4 Louisville
Your vote: Kansas wins 73.7 percent to 26.3 percent
Ideas: With apologies to N.C. Central and Houston, this game would have been the first real test for Kansas. If other dominoes toppled– prior to toppling a bit to end the season, Louisville was in the discussion for a possible 1-seed–. With Jordan Nwora, who balanced 18.0 points, 7.7 rebounds and shot 40.2 percent beyond the 3-point arc, leading the method for the Cardinals, Kansas would have had its hands full. The Jayhawks’ within-outside combination of SN second-team All-Americans Devon Dotson and Udoka Azubuike– who scored 46 points in his last 2 regular-season games on 19-of-23 shooting from the field– would have been too much.
No. 3 Michigan State over No. 2 Creighton
Your vote: Michigan State wins, 69.8 to 30.2
Ideas: I t’s a seed upset– Creighton’s resume was plainly much better than Michigan State’s– however I believe it’s safe to state Vegas most likely would have preferred the Spartans. This was a rough season for Sparty, however there’s a factor they were the preseason No. 1team They played like it down the stretch.
MISSING MARCH MADNESS WRAP-UPS:
Day 1|Day 2|Day 3|Day 4
No. 1 Dayton over No. 4 Seton Hall
Your vote: Dayton wins, 73.7 to 26.3
Ideas: This would have been an incredibly amusing face-off in between 2 of the very best players in the nation, Dayton’s Obi Toppin– 20.0 points, 7.5 rebounds, 1.2 blocks per game on 63.3 percent shooting– and Seton Hall’s Myles Powell– 21.0 points, 2.9 helps, 1.2 takes pergame If you do not mind, I’m going to envision this contest being a display game for each gamer, with Toppin’s colleagues ultimately beating Powell’s to assist Dayton take out the win.
No. 2 Florida State over No. 3 Duke
Your vote: FSU wins, 65.5 to 35.5
Ideas: Though I concur with the choice, I’m a bit stunned at this margin; figured it would be much better, with possibly Duke on top. The 2 teams used Feb. 10, with heaven Devils winning by 5. Obviously, that a person was at Cameron Indoor, so that’s still a great proving from the Seminoles. Plainly, you believe this one goes to FSU on a neutral website.
