#13 UB vs #4 Arizona Game (3/15 - 9:45pm)***NCAA 1st Round
« on: March 11, 2018, 07:28:35 PM »
80%/20% odds historically for #4 Seed

Arizona somehow winning the PAC12 and having 3 NBA players (and the #1 pick), is the lowest 4.

UB will have to score, there is no other way around it.

Well, this one is going to be challenging with them having the best player in the country and a dominant front court. Let's see what Oats can cook up. GO BULLS!

I’ll set the over under of 3pt attempts at 45... and we may need to hit 20+ to have a chance...

Buffalo played tough against Cincinnati,Texas A&M, and Syracuse. This is a different challenge altogether. So elated that the Bulls prevailed to obtain a berth...so disappointed that this is the matchup they were given. To say nothing of the inclusion of ASU and OU.

Every post written above mine is spot on. This team has proven themselves to be competitive seeing as their only non-conference losses were to teams that all made the final 68. I am hopeful that Perkins' propensity to slide to the 3 point line can be advantageous, drawing Ayton out of the paint and opening up any potential offensive rebounds for the rest of the crew. Our speed will need to be top notch and we need our shots to be falling.

I have to double check the bracket when I get home, but is the Cincinnati game the only one in the entire tournament that is a non P6 vs a non P6?

Just in case anyone has coaches ear, or if he happens to stop in an read here when he is bored, but check the film of the game when UCLA went in to Arizona and decisively got the win. Early February if my memory is correct. Early odds from what I’ve seen is 9pt dogs. Actually less than I thought it would be.

Arizona and UB both should be higher seeds. This is the lowest total RPI in the first round with a combined total of 42 (US 17 UB 25)

Just saw some highlights for Arizona vs USC pac 12 championship game. Man it looks like they just lob it to him and he dunks everything. We will need all 10 fouls from McRae and Smart. Bertram might need to get in the game.

Someone else said it and they were spot on but it looks like Davidson pushed us out of the 12 seed. I guess we can’t argue that much about Murray State getting the better seed over us.

Just coming out of ubfan retirement to voice my displeasure about the #13 seed.

The title is incorrect. It's 4 vs 13, not 3 vs 14.

Old timer checking in.  Congrats UB!  Great to see the success of the team lately.  I haven't been able to keep up with everything as I used to, but the few games I saw the team looks real solid.  You never know.  We might be able to pull it off.

this would be a good time to hire some Russian bots to get things like #FireSeanMiller and #SuspendAyton trending to rock the boat a bit

I already left a message at the White House. Fingers crossed...

Title fixed.

Alright enough feeling sorry for ourselves. It’s monday morning. We are in the NCAA. Something I dreamed I would see just once in my life.

I slept on it and I actually now think we can pull off this upset.

Ayton - future #1 pick. All attention is on him. So how do we neutralize this beast? We need to run every chance we get and spread the floor. It’s what we do. There is no way he will be able to play 35 minutes of frantic basketball. On spreading the floor. It’s what we do. We have shooters everywhere.

On playing against 2 bigs - we need to play our game. Let them play 2 bigs and we can play 1 big and four guards. We’ve done it all year. No need to change that. We are no Golden State but this is the new way to play and we can win with this offense. Their bigs will be caught out in the perimeter.

Hit 3s - let’s be honest, we need a really really good shooting night. I like how everyone is stroking it.some balls didn’t fall in Cleveland. That was good practice. Time to make those and we can.

Wes Clark - he has officially taken over this team. He is the alpha dog and he will think he’s the best player on the floor on Thursday. He is a bulldog and he is hungry.  He’s never been to the tourney even playing for Missouri. He’s not going to let some 18 year old take it away that easily.

We have nothing to lose. People are picking this Zona team to make it all the way to the final four. Time to crash this party and disappoint all the NBA lottery watchers (and there will be a ton on them) 16 NBA teams are all tanking right now. This will be the most watched game in the first round. The first year we made it, not many noticed cause our game was Thursday afternoon on I think it was TruTV. 2 years ago, I didn’t catch the game on TV, but someone else mentioned that it wasn’t cbs.

It’s going to be a blast. Let’s Go Buffalo.
