-- -- Dario Bryan Webber joined by -- -- -- in the brackets are set we're going to break it down region by region markets you -- Natalie tired is always your regular dance another letter about commitment to boogie man with William as we instill pride and united -- go to the top seeds in the -- it seemed like three of these teams were locks to be on the top lives in doubt about the fourteenth. Here's nothing's broke down Louisville gets atop the overall even when the Big East regular season title the Big East tournament. North Carolina the top seed in the south region kiss the top seed in the east region you've got the third Big East team to get a number one -- instead of medalists both in the west region so let's start in that region markets with the debate between you've got a method which would you have chosen to be atop a. What a it was a tough but I felt that there were five teams that were deserving of of that number one seed and the fact that Memphis plays in -- conference this proceed to be so weak. I think is the biggest thing against them. That I -- the way Memphis came on especially after -- Evans all of sudden John Calipari. Figured out that he was a point guard for them to starting lineup as the point guard and the team took off from there but when you look at the Big East have to put that that that -- was all season long. I don't think you can -- you can't be number one seed I interviewed John fell apart this weekend he was passionate saying this team has not received enough credit. Can we blame them for playing in conference US and that's not their choice -- the coverage they play well they they they had some some losses early on a -- of tough teams this season but hasn't lost immediately after they played Georgetown are -- that I -- -- Syracuse without -- even -- -- begins I think and that gets along and really it would -- -- -- which is -- signature win but but but but still -- they didn't really start to come on strong until. After January Terri -- into the starting lineup so. You economy I just can't argue with that yet based on the strength of Big East. Probably hitting that history was made this year let's talk about another Big -- team -- Jamie Dixon's team that any season what stands -- to you the most when you look at the -- well with this team of the -- the look at their deep pits and and and how good of a defensive -- they are and how physical this basketball team is UCLA's been how -- kind of got the ball rolling when he was head coach -- before UCLA Jamie Dixon as -- assistant kind of picked it up. From where he left off and had DeJuan Blair you know you look at his head matchup William timmons and let people from UConn and then he just. Demolished but the beach and and let her laundry evangelical and I had just -- -- fifth game last year against Washington in Seattle you see an up close and personal. TV doesn't do justice how how physical this team has come events feels when he's healthy he's one of us. That was the best point guards in the country but he's a clutch clutch player and you need -- -- Sam Young -- the best all around all purpose guys in terms of office and the fence in the country -- underrated I think and got to do that he deserves so. This team's toughness and and and the players. Right now just as Billy -- anybody that he has under achieve the big in the tourney in recent years anyway they benefited from losing early. In the Big East tournament New York and the rest well let's deal with oodles and they're minerals and hated the that the pac ten full season -- just because he thought it would you play eighteen games for the greatest season you know -- -- -- to -- -- -- -- that scenario. I think it could help this team especially considering what they had to go through for the entire season the Big -- okay let's move on North Carolina arguably the most talented team in the country does they're run to the final four come down to Ty -- and tell. Yet it doesn't what I Ty Lawson this team is going to be -- big big trouble and then took the things we're here now that he should be ready to play. Come the first game of the NCAA tournament but that he is together makes them go in terms of just handling the basketball they have the top assist to turnover ratio in his start ACC this because the -- -- without him there's nowhere near as efficient offensively so he's going to have to be healthy for -- -- to -- to advance TF questions about north Carolina's defense they've had a lot of trouble with athletic off. Well what they do what would you look at this team -- -- look at points allowed because as the team gets about seventy points a game which is terrible but on the -- on the face of it but when you look at the into the temple that they play at least score about nine points a game. I look at befits -- Google sinister around fifth in the ACC better than do better than Clinton been a lot of teams during the tournament so. I think overall they're deep into solid but as admitted the wings can be a problem for law of all the top overall seed and you look at the numbers almost unbeatable since Janet yes it is the love the global T -- Pannemon December 20. When they lost the Minnesota in Phoenix and neutral court. They weren't the same team that they are now Terrence Williams as -- my favorite players in the country because it does so many things rebound the basketball. There's a great -- -- this the best but he didn't get the LeBron James likes. Resin bag thing that we do -- -- what he did it overly brand when we had on the net in Phoenix so I'm like is it is his -- tomorrow standards -- -- load inside the -- to start to the bubble of a better. And then Rick pitino has been -- so many -- he understands what it takes to get his team prepared for big moment for the Cardinals -- take on the play in winner but potential legal -- Ohio State -- to could that be troublesome matchup on how they but it -- -- going to the other team that has a lot of guys who come back from last year's NCAA tournament team so you can't overlook them but but it. I don't think so I just think we move on as planned right now to think to do what they did in the Big East it took to win the Big East trim and on top of that. You just can't fight that you have to understand is this team's plane fired on all cylinders and -- -- -- early round game to be a problem for the state. Let's welcome at foxwoods dot com senior basketball writer Jeff Goodman Jeff I know you're busy but I you Dillon's. I might do well I'm excited to get this thing going now. It's survive and advance for all muscle let's talk about charity snubs Saint Mary's San Diego State Penn State left out. Do you think any of those teams has a real case to be made they deserve to be and the the other 65. I think Kent State had none whatsoever with there is their strength is scheduled -- nonconference let him play anybody. So I don't think they had any any chance. Saint Mary's is don't want to see that happen most. Validity in terms of getting results it's only because there is even more which side is still beating good guys get -- does. I'm not -- he's a 100% back he's not he's not even be until we -- -- but certainly he looked better against -- -- watching him. And I think they were deserving of love getting in the field. Marty you great well yeah him out of nominee yet Saint Mary's and that they did have the thirteen road wins and then and it's tough for the mid major teams. That -- in terms of scheduling to get the big guy to play -- on a consistent basis but to go and organ lose by one the worst team the pac ten. Kind of a red flag for me with this basketball team and I'm I'm not that. Surprise that they were left depth. Jeff let's not about the topic is are you surprised the Big Ten gets seven bits. You know I figured they get seven at the end of the day you know Minnesota gets same page doesn't really they're -- -- Louisville's. You know you always got to the play tough schedule didn't really -- a lot of people I would doubt a big -- -- -- into the quarterfinals. I think if they get seven nice guy I knew Penn State just was -- worthy of both kids in the mix there after they got lit spot for do. We don't get as -- talk French you look at it and say. You know maybe they're more deserving. Overall but they had some good wins and about conference early and then not I think album for. -- fellows does not imply that the Big Ten was as good as BAC got into Big East doesn't pass the -- test -- way you think about a billion who did not power conferences got what four at large bid to in this in this time around -- and in the NCAA selection Sunday self. I think that did the tournament this favoring your tilting more where was Billy packer this year you know he didn't put it puts it with a big power conferences get more team did. This is one of those years when -- happened Jeff what do you think. Yeah I know all what market so that I mean that. He got EU did deterred it is based on the Cinderella stories in the non BCS. Teams especially early out of the first couple around them. If you like to see if Creighton in there or at Saint Mary's or even if San Diego State's mountain west since. I agree with their my -- ignition -- -- may be another teams from that these major varieties -- got. Jeff let's talk about individual teams what's the case against Arizona or Michigan. Well Arizona nominee Arizona along that I I really don't believe issues away you know when you loose. Like skated down the stretch I know they've played this competition this got some quality wins. However when you're playing like that down the stretch. You know I think it's hard to justify getting him. I'd park Michigan goes hey Big East you know there's still live and up those wins against Duke can still play early in the -- -- They got the one against Minnesota Minnesota's -- -- the regular season and I think that really put America hadn't beat Minnesota I think they're probably would have thought. Would have been on the outside looking at. -- is here the prince in the pac ten -- Arizona well I agree with -- -- Minnesota. On Michigan and they're winning as Minnesota but Arizona I just completely shocked at the USC wins the -- pac ten. Post season term I just thought it was a done deal of Arizona that they would that. Extend their streak to 25 consecutive years and make an NCAA tournament does your team has faded down the stretch. Everybody put into their matchup against Arizona State can win that game you're and they lose that they play Arizona State impacted tournament have a terrible second half. That you days like who wanted to leave that resonate -- my lionized my eyes told me that this was not a team that means that that this year deserve to be in the NCAA tournament. You know there have been those guys worn -- markets I mean there was three guys but anger and they've Jordan Hill and equalizer but a ton of minutes this year. Well I've been. Q is that a criteria for the -- the -- players yet but I I really did they have they'll averaged like 3536 minutes Nic Wise 3738 minutes a game in fact in play. And that's out of necessity because this is not a very deep basketball team and it was reflected in just the lackluster play have to dip down the stretch for -- club. Jeff we appreciate the exact we'll talk to you later in the show. -- Right now let's bring in a head coach who never gets dubbed Kansas head coach bill self who got in the jayhawks to a national championship a year ago. Belliard jayhawks a three seed in the midwest region what was your reaction to that -- I thought that's what we would be I thought that's what we deserved. I think we played better arc and our respective tournament we may had a chance at a two. But also when we could've maybe go maybe gone to a 42 so. I'm not displeased at all with our seat I'm not excited about. Our first opponent to be quite honest with you you know whenever you hear about it a guy go for sixty points in the college game -- you know that that would make any coach nervous that. You don't you look you look at the turn American. If I was a three seed in another bracket or succeed another bracket then making a difference all coaches think they got hard games which they do. And they should be our games because this is the NCAA tournament what you hit on a little look Perry this year how important is eating. I don't know if it is I said that all along you know who we as coaches we're we're like thinking or my -- -- get a good seat open get a good seat you know what we should really be open is. Hope we get some good matchups. Because I I don't know that -- -- if the -- toward the playoffs. I don't know that a seven beaten twos and upset of an upset at all why it. -- -- -- If three in a six or there may be a situation -- six since it is is has a better matchup situation and a three and that's it this season play out you know there's also. We know that's not going to be the case because it's that way every year there's going to be some some some upsets but what people think our major upsets are guaranteeing coaches' minds are not many major upsets out there there there's. Too much parity. Tell you lost so many players in the NBA last year how was this team able to win the big twelve regular season title again. Would we got a couple really good guys somebody's strong -- is as good guard is there is in my opinion. In the country and -- call Aldridge is emerging as good as one of the best pivot players in the country so that's a good place to start with an anchor. The middle and -- could lead guard play. And that we had a good recruiting class and unheralded recruiting class for the recruiting class that when the animal altogether no McDonald's all Americans -- when the animal altogether. Pretty productive group in hand hand he'll Brady Morningstar -- read these guys it would. Come the end of when given the opportunity to perform well it's it's it's a fun group we we don't have a martyr for rare like last year's team last year's team -- gamble and. We're so quickly come back and still with you know after had a poor -- -- positioning this team doesn't doesn't have that luxury have to be sound and we and we and we have to really execute. But we play we're we're fun -- to -- -- repeating is so hard to achieve in the tournament to even talk about last year to this year's team wars is entirely different mission. You know I haven't yet. Talked about. That but I will say this our goals. Have not changed one bit from what they were last year. Our goals would win the league last year our goals was when the -- determined last rebels who are goals this year we will once in our conference determines obviously. Didn't play there -- goals was to win the NCAA tournament last year. And although it. They seem a little bit more farfetched as that is our goal this year there for three seasons -- So so often you know we're we're excited about it. And we we know that we -- the -- we know that we can be had. By anybody in the field and we know what we play well we got a great chance to play with anybody that's just the the nature of this team. Not as much margin of error as last year's group was still yet a fun group that complainant had really high level more playing well the. This is -- eleventh consecutive appearance. In the end he AA tournament as a head coach what's the biggest difference between coaching a regular season of the post he. I think. Distractions as one. I I I you know if if I don't know there's a big difference from on the -- but there's a lot of intangible difference I think I handled distractions maturity. And of course distractions could be off a ton of different things and it every player every team deals -- different types of distractions. I also think this is his understanding. It's a different feeling coming will be playing in dome. Obviously all Friday's and that atmosphere is not on the same plane had a home game. During league player maybe your league tournament I'm and you got to build up to generate your own energy of employee that penal in the game played a high level like bad and you know he's you think that sounds easy easily done but it just a little bit different feel so sometimes a little bit different field until the focus off just a little bit. Can you certainly you've got to get lucky he's got to have guys step up and make some plays that maybe run bad offense a couple of free points as opposed to running great -- -- what you think coming. There's going to be some possessions like -- certainly need guys to step up make plays his time here. As a college hoops fan is third and CAA tournament moment you remember beyond the national title he won last year. -- I'm not remember. Lot of moments I my my idea. My second -- team that went to the NCAA tournament played a great great Cincinnati team and we were able to beat him in the second round. Course that was when Kenyon Martin went down but they still have they still have a terrific team and and but -- a lot of moments like last year. You know. One of my one in my field go down as a great moment -- the most stressful moment upright in my coaching is watching Jason Richards shot. Stay in the -- for 48 seconds before if he was wide left in the Davidson game because. You know he's dead dad that was one of those situations if he makes every shot and then it changes everything and and and then how we played the final four is my all time favorite though we played so well against Carolina so aggressively and and our our guys you know played like me and down the stretch against Memphis of those will be the things I remember the most. You teamed up -- DirecTV notice a logo over your shoulder what -- the particulars. Well you know DirecTV sponsoring mega March Madness and every game the first three rounds of -- -- you can can be purchased for only 69 dollars on DirecTV dot com and in tomorrow's a bonus for everybody continue to bracket breakdown with all the first weekend analysis from from a -- cal Perry for Tino Romo or curling Capel and Paul fought all five of those guys Jeff we know what they're talking about so well I think it's a good purchase and you can only get it on DirecTV. No we appreciate the end until we come back we'll break down the brackets region by region -- -- Jerry continues after this. Welcome back to go to Jerry Bryan Webber joined by hoops -- Marcus Johnson -- spotlight the east region pick the ones he Barry looks like they won't have too much trouble winning their first two games but. Any matchup of standout to you in the opening round. Well the the person matchup is UCLA BCU Virginia commonwealth they've got a terrific clear and Eric -- but. A lot of people think that is going to be kind of the upset special in the in the first round of 512 matchup but the thing to remember that Ben Howland. When he's got like 45 days to prepare he's almost fund. Beatable something like 341 on Thursday night games in the pac ten so. I think you Selig will give by BC you even -- -- -- -- let his game I think and that's second round game because Villanova info Tokyo. Is remember it was me about yet could be a spicy -- about the 89 game Oklahoma State Tennessee Oklahoma State took care of all you in the big twelve tourney. And it seems like they got -- the right time yet they did it even and Travis -- have an opportunity to do. His game earlier this season against Washington and they've they've got an athletic -- some pretty solid point guard played a little bit lax and lacking in the middle that's where Tennessee might have an advantage but a lot of respect Oklahoma State but they did especially to beat Oklahoma wants -- big -- got back in the lineup a -- -- 512 games Florida State Wisconsin Florida State made it to the DEC championship game the first time. We got a squarely on the ball yeah yeah -- -- -- but you know it will Bo Ryan you know you have to understand the and he knows how to get it seems also to pick the right time they had their struggles in January -- -- two games in a row and all of a sudden -- got -- together as is -- didn't have with the same -- at 1011 they had a couple of years ago Wisconsin but are capable of given together and prevent and presenting some problems but. Florida State a -- and Hamilton the way he's that I got this team to respond they see coach of the year a much of this city should be national coach of the year. Lot of respect what he's that a Florida State -- give us some dark courses in this region who could cause -- -- well I'm going to pick a dark horse would probably won the smallest guys in the region in important state -- -- former University of Washington assistant and runs a -- mark. It's an outstanding job last year they won the big big guy this year they finished second in the big guy he's got little player by the name of Jeremiah Dominguez but I think fat. Fact he's six maybe the platform heels look good but but that this kicking going to shoot the basketball does a great -- -- an office does the team that plays kind of coming grind it out gritty style of basketball I think will serve him well. I in the NCAA tournament -- gets -- Xavier. Exhibit a lot of high flyers elect Jon -- the coach what they've done but I just think this this -- state team the team -- get overlooked and Xavier stumbled -- -- attorney who wins this region is going to the final four I think it's come it's come that is -- -- as the -- duque in in the regional final but Pittsburgh -- -- their toughness and and if the wind DeJuan Blair and Sam Young in the Mansfield and and in the would be do you up and Jamie Dixon that is an outstanding coach I think Pittsburgh represents of this -- Cleveland's. -- a tough matchup with Wake Forest and -- one of the turn and at we welcome in their head coach Gary waters and Gary -- Vikings are headed to the NCAA tournament for the first time -- 23 years. Getting there and -- beating butler in the horizon league championship taking back to that game what you felt when the final horn sounded. All right -- mayor there was there was a moment of they're pure excitement that I mean that just say they went through your whole body and are you could -- about it how far you've come. Coach you're no stranger to the attorney took ten day to the dance twice what's your favorite part of being part of the post season. Well welcome -- Rangers besides -- -- memorabilia and maybe in a reporter Gloria remember they're pull off an upset. Expect a bad blood at a local favorite part -- we -- it a couple of dark. Seniors Reggie Jackson coming on strong as a late tell us about his development as a player. Our case W Israelis are really totally controlled the terrible basketball game and each started last year and this year he gave Marmol a -- late but I pay -- -- after after coming into -- goalie was government very tough to handle I thought he was the key to the popular day. And what's the mood on campus right now are -- student -- up. -- -- ridiculous we we have a job party today. And we had a home three separate floors that's how many people showed up dead dead I -- we had once forward he had all the -- you have another floor we're all still isn't -- look forward to contribute so every -- there was great. What do you expect from Wake Forest they have loaded guard play in the back courts. Bob -- and I gave sudden there are very talented group and credit score a lot of points we can't let them score as many points is really cool we're in deep trouble. So many outstanding underdog stories in the tournament what's it going to take for Cleveland State to be the biggest story. Are we gotta we gotta may god Wake Forest lay our triple would lead to make a Blair are terrible. And we can control toward this game I think we got. Okay coach thank you let's talk about the mid west -- the top overall. Yeah they can be Utah and that you know as we talked about earlier -- within -- surprising Arizona made the tournament at the USC did but they didn't impact -- but now that they are and I expect some big things from the wildcat to -- Utah. Good team good deep that the team -- that this is team there though can be. And we look at Arizona's personnel Chase Budinger I think -- What will awaken. From in his sleep that this sleep walking they did get there are those they defected tournament in the second half. And have a huge tournament and Jordan Gil is one of the better big men in the entire country eighteen points eleven rebounds and Arizona does beat Utah which I expect him to do -- -- Wake Forest public -- 51 of the best point guards in the country dame job than. And athletic wing player but Wake Forest struggles against zone defenses Arizona plays this 113 kind of -- three people he -- own that did Jerry Tarkanian used to and -- you know be between them run -- a great motivated as head coach and Mike Dunlap. Reese the great great great great great tactician as assistant coach I think Arizona will. Pull up you have to be quick -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- They've got some they're they're the key components back and they got a freshman and I just Corning new -- when he doesn't people. Demoralization. DiMarco -- and do you mile track like dame are nice the tomorrow lads as people but going down bounce in their face. And defensively Tim Floyd's teams have always been. At the top or are if not been this deep with the team in the pac ten. Bet -- he'll -- -- included I think it ties gifted because a player a year Daniel Hackett just a tough bull of a point guard. I think this team is primed and ready for long -- not a long run but the when a couple of games and commitment and maybe make it to the sweet sixteen Kansas may have -- -- -- if they won the big twelve tourney get to settle for three he should they be pleased with that. Yeah yeah I think this then they should -- they've got an outstanding record garden trying columns one of the best in the country in my mind but but this is a team to kind of came on late you don't when Arizona beat them. Back in December nobody thought much is going to happen bill self and self was saying that this team this is the rebuilding years a lot of young guys I don't know what their personalities going to develop into -- media that they could have gathered to see if they've won the conference tournament but. I think they're just kind of happy to be as highly -- they are right now have a dog course in this -- well I do not pick USC I think yet -- season is going to be wanting to watch out for kind of but not dark horse player I think you gotta gotta -- ground as governor and the Ben Woodside out of North Dakota State no matter what people -- him. You don't like sixty plus points of the game this season I gave USC fits when he played him at the Galen center in Los Angeles. An outstanding shooter. Beane would set I think it's a clear that we'll kind of make it -- for himself in the -- they don't buy it. North Dakota State like the mascot course coming out this bracket well I -- I think it is is no depth at Louisville will be the represented about this region again Terrence Williams is one of the best all around players in the country. But Tito's been never for the planned at the top of their game right now I just don't see anyone in this region that would give. Louisville a lot of resistance even though -- it's it's it's it's it's going to be -- a somewhat typical reason but little is -- class of the. Okay let's bring back Jeff good the -- you watch a ton of basketball -- askew to inform us the best five games to watch in route one. Well number one to meet Boston College against US. Big I like it because of the contrasting styles. You know you've got Boston College it's methodical game. They run a tight -- shops -- could help the definitive that. You gave up this kids game that they've never played again. But then on the other side -- get employed the USC is obviously they're healthy they're peaking at the right time they win the pac -- tournament. To Mark DeRosa looks like it's completely different player right now and I think this is the top so -- -- -- just be one of the more intriguing matchup of the first round. Another what I -- slams -- against Michigan some of the same reasons. Two contrasting style together Oliver Purnell seem. Wanted to get up and down their big dry mouth please. Play hard is it really get after -- and they the other report does not feel live. Place to play that 131 don't. Shooters cerebral. Did their vacant job they can be carved them but this board should be a good thing gives -- a tossup as well. The. Third one on my list Utah against Arizona. Arizona seems to be that it pick. Right now as a twelve city if you -- well you know what. This could be great matchup of big guys -- and double. Seven -- few Australians for the years and going up against come up big club out pleaded Jordan Hill. It's -- state junior out of Arizona. I think Jim Boylan -- one of the best coaching job in America this year with -- -- another we'll tell you delegate front federal. Veteran coach. I had to deal a lot of adversity you've got three big time guys from Jordan elected head -- but angered reply but nothing else. So this won't be whoever wins this. I think got to -- we'll have a -- to get a job lot of good. You know and in boiling could be a hot name going forward there Rust Belt could have a chance to just get a a permanent gig got to respect. Another what I like Florida State against which starts at. The Seminoles. About a great year and get in the permits for the first -- under Leonard Hamilton there's still you know what bowl rides. He's just tough because he always get to the -- people are given a lot of credit I just saw him play against. I in the Big Ten tournament and they're not overly talented but he's such victories coach that I can -- up or outfield sitting here and one of the guys that everybody. -- including myself for Florida State. Toney Douglas senior guard did you put up a lot of points he's great defensive player. I think there's cast around him is a little bit young and inexperienced. So that want to -- will be a tough -- work anybody c'mon I've stopped my billboards. Syracuse -- keep -- up Boston I don't know a lot of people don't want to hear a lot of Syracuse. Stand and watch your they went to the big league championship game ended up losing in the first round to Vermont and just came up. Just keep it above -- obviously got a shot here. Gotta win you know they've helped the kid is Missouri is maybe the -- but. And they -- the -- championship game he was obviously worn down I think they have played limited minutes the next game then they did make shots in the first round here. Much more to get to including Marcus in Jets picking the final four hopes to Jerry continues after this. Welcome back to the hysteria coming up Marcus Johnson Jeff Goodman will pick the final four bullets emigrating of the south region North Carolina the top seed there let's talk about other matchup featuring the 89 game between LA -- butler. Yellow -- that's a first of all got to give him his props and and he was the pac ten coach of the year last year now moves on to the SEC he becomes this -- coach of the year so he goes you'll be any doubt in my that this guy knows what he's doing it and Marcus Thornton netted the the conference where you're just a tremendous. Tremendous girl over twenty points a game to this ballclub snag in SC was down the -- just three teams and -- Mississippi State. I won the conference tournaments they were predicted to have two teams in the tournament they were down but but -- but you can't phone L issue. Butler Brett Stephens he's probably -- -- -- -- a couple of my son's -- mean he's just a guy that there really -- come on strong as the head coach had an opportunity to work coaches show with him last year and he just couldn't step that is behind brad got that I have no idea where they were chemical of just showing up he doesn't already tell about these over the that we had combined that would Gordon Haywood. Of one of the top young players as a freshman 67 could do everything to the basketball. Distribute the basketball he rebounds because everything you asked them but it's going to be a tough out. But I think Ellis you can get them. About clubs in Michigan the added ten game another year which Clinton got off to the real strong -- yeah -- Clinton did it just seems to be good -- MO they jump out of the -- strong at the over the last ten games or five and five Oliver Purnell has done a terrific job with the program. But my question is -- did did the momentum that they've lost -- the -- of the season they've got a great big men and and and Trevor Booker. So I've been up just not so sure. With the momentum that they -- can they sustain it can. Can they can they give up and and play it hard enough and good enough to win their first round game in the tournament now Michigan John Beilein on the other hand. This is a guy that I have the utmost respect for all -- hate -- all these guys -- just terrific coach but they -- -- -- earlier but I thought that. You know what's going on what you silly -- to be in a down year but he -- shown that we would -- -- -- with his -- to dip in the spread office that he is run down -- last that is either very difficult to prepare for -- -- going to have a lot of time prepare to prepare. But the way he can mix things up at both ends and afford John Beilein going to be tough for -- Clinton the deal with them. Double surprise winner of the 810 taking -- Arizona State led by one of the best players in all college basketball -- -- -- James Harden registered a terrific all around guy and a -- a little -- James Harden is that he allows the game to come to him he's a guy who may not take a stab the first step just kind of feeling out beat Kansas. And they get a big guy Jeff Pendergraph inside whose underrated but his double little -- to get to fifteen -- -- and given night almost -- on most nights -- effect and their point guard Derek -- he's another guy you don't hear a lot of babble all he does is give you this far right when you needed knocked down big stats. Temple they've got the optic Christmas of course. They're going to need him to be on from the outside because Arizona State they play at 32 matchup zone which makes it's almost impossible for great outside shooters to really get their games off you have a -- -- in this -- for -- to -- well I -- -- you don't get -- is that so much a dark horse because -- -- but this is a team when you look at -- what they've done -- I think. Will be there in the Indians -- as a team and nobody's really talking about mark few this is kind of the in the -- darlings of over the last 678 years. But now this kind of got on the radar a little bit but I think that's the team out of this reason that I think we'll get to the regional final. And who's coming out there reaching going to I don't know what and zag and Oklahoma playing in the regional while thought about value for a second because a month ago they -- been -- top yeah they would indeed and in and Blake Griffin goes down with a concussion but they've. They've got just a good all around basketball team Jeff -- has done an outstanding Dallas in the play terrific -- -- Blake Griffin hands down player of the year but it got a freshman. But -- name Willie Warren. -- really come on strong he's played well all season but in particular the last month of the season he has really come on and he's the kind of -- is that like you just -- what in his -- doesn't feel the pressure. I think he will shine come tournament time and -- you go into the -- -- again Oklahoma -- the final four said let's head to the west region you come -- top -- a lot of people thought it couldn't that this market is the Tigers are young talented but an inexperienced -- could they lose early in the turn and whatnot I think there experience with the with the returning players from last year's final four run championship game run -- people will bode well for Memphis have been -- evans' way he's played at the point guard position. I don't see him go and -- the and it gets a particularly good tough match -- you know cal made in the second round Missouri may be today in -- end in the third round and in the region but. I think they've got enough experience and a young twins would kind of come into his own that they they did the advance to do well. Let's talk about the 710 game talent Marilyn the chair when they were good they would dialed in beating North Carolina Michigan speedway for us that's -- though by an ugly losses yes and they give you an idea of the kind of -- that the inconsistencies it. Gary Williams had to deal with but. You know you think about -- championship years of Juan Dixon what he was able to do. Capital out of stock but in the coaches that have been -- before that his team who will be up for dead now -- the other hand Mike Montgomery former Stanford coach not cause. Coach and across the big -- This team -- they rely so heavily on the three point Chad if you could. Since the three point -- successfully led the nation in three point field goal percentage. That you have a chance to win -- don't have a format or from inside the did you have one of the most underrated guards in the country Jerome Randle. He's got he's got to slow down we was -- who is drawn -- -- terrific point guard matchup. You all lot of Washington this year be surprised him in the pac ten are they capable make you run the final -- yes they are and it's when you start when -- -- you -- -- Jon Brockman he's a guy average of about fifteen points about eleven half rebounds -- that -- shoot in double doubles a hard -- A baloney she's kind of a guy Bologna and cheese sandwich kind of a guy with a hardest workers in the country but the thing. That made this team go and I called in the most valuable addition in the pac ten this season was Isiah Thomas the pressure and out of the coma for the University of Washington he's a guy that we have suggested that they're the guard. Which allowed him to make first team all pac ten become the -- its most improved player but it's because of Isiah Thomas. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I like to read that may fifteenth place you actually have some readers and rank the top 25 and off the the -- -- officially UConn -- Virginia and Missouri Gidzenko Kansas Duke Villanova. And BYU. Of my sleeper in this reason UB BYU -- a terrific all around player. I think inflated didn't do good -- game -- they've got just enough to present some problems I think you are used to sleep in the like the data I was told AB no math involved -- just an aside about teams who's coming out Israel just there's only to the final four why I think if you cut I mean you guys -- going to -- you know you come -- -- there was some question is whether that who deserves that -- that that fourth number one -- I just think you call on don't be too. Probable matchup and but -- the way he's just patrols a lane and plays befits a black's Jeff will be too much to overcome. We welcome back Jeff Goodman fellows has done to help the kids at home -- -- bracket Jeff let's start with you who you have going to the final four. I don't know Wake Forest. Coming out of the mid west. Out of -- west side you don't where they've had success in the past. Want to -- national titles. Out of these guys Pittsburg and out of itself I have can jagr. Allow our kids have your bracket I -- out like a man who goes that'll MI in the midwest that got Louisville my dad just again there too but -- you don't Terrence Williams that they. They're going to be a team of the midwest the west UConn is just missed -- a lot of success coming out of that reason. In the south I've got Oklahoma beating Gonzaga some right which he definitely did that get. We're coming on strong but I think Oklahoma comes out of the south region. And in the east that get Pittsburgh I think the combination of defensive. And -- Jamie Dixon and experience of this club to just be too much for the team to overcome Jeff was going to play in the championship game and who wins. I got a -- Big East teams playing in the championship game at a party played twice before you can't playing against Pittsburgh. So I'm going what kids are going to clean sweep this article implies. They know how to handle the one players a good job against a shame to see setup thanks gather Panthers not only get past the sweet sixteen but I think they want it all this year. Well okay -- at Louisville. Playing against Oklahoma I think Oklahoma you give you that you get to the national player of the year at the -- of the year that Blake Griffin leads this team. Into the final game just just crest is everybody until they get a lawyer bill and then I have Rick pitino winning another champ is about got a little winning you know. Dallas great of as always we appreciate -- -- -- The latest try to make music videos keep a log on the foxsports.com. For market and -- I'm Brian we'll see next.
