NCAA Elite Eight Previews Sunday, March 26



Sunday, March 26

Two games remain in the "Elite Eight" and both figure to be tight, low-scoring games.

Florida (-3.5/132.5) vs. South Carolina
There's no doubt that South Carolina has been the biggest surprise in the tournament. Against all odds, The Gamecocks beat Marquette in a coin-flip situation, then upset Duke and Baylor. Amazing stuff — especially considering South Carolina held Scott Drew’s Bears to 30.4 percent shooting from the field, including 23.1 percent from 3-point range, in the Sweet 16. The Gamecocks have the nation’s second-best defensive efficiency rating. And they’ll have the best player (Sindarius Thornwell) on the floor at Madison Square Garden. A victory would put them its first ever berth in the final and a date with Gonzaga, the No. 1 seed in the West. 
North Carolina (-2.5/159.5) vs. Kentucky
The South Regional final is a rematch of the best game college basketball produced all regular season — a 103-100 thriller in Las Vegas that Kentucky won thanks to Malik Monk scoring a career-high 47 points. However this game go either direction; plenty of points or a low-scoring tilt. The numbers show that North Carolina is a little better offensively while Kentucky is a little better defensively. But the Wildcats are average defensive rebounders, and UNC is the nation’s best offensive-rebounding team. So perhaps that’ll be the difference — UNC’s ability to create extra shots that lead to enough second-chance points to take Roy Williams to his ninth Final Four. 

The total has been interesting to follow. It opened at 152.5 and has rocketed up to 159.5.

We're on a 14-6 March Madness with five games remaining in the tournament. You can get the remainder of our coverage for $15 dollars. That's $3.00 dollars per game.
All plays are sent via email and/or text. Good luck!
