    If we were to get an 8/9 seed...

    What potential #1 seed would you be least scared of playing in the 2nd game (3rd round)?

    I am not including Kansas as we would not get put in their pod.

    Other than Otto Porter, Georgetown doesn't really scare me at all.

    Gonzaga or Louisville. Duke is the scariest one on that list now that Kelly is back.

    Re: If we were to get an 8/9 seed...

    I think Georgetown is a nightmare matchup for ISU like has been said. Not Louisville because they are a high pressure D and 2nd in nation behind VCU in steals and we have been careless with the ball at times. So either Gonzaga or Indiana. Zeller and Oladipo can just be too unstoppable at times. I think the nation is realizing Gonzaga is for real, but I still think I'd rather have the shot at them if we got an 8/9 seed. They have two good post players but we have had luck out shooting/3P-ing teams with big men down low. I'd go with Zags.

    Re: If we were to get an 8/9 seed...

    Playing Georgetown would be like the reverse of ISU vs. Baylor in football. Good O vs. good D, bad O vs. bad D. I'll take that over the other four which are at least top 25 (via KenPom) in both categories.

    Re: If we were to get an 8/9 seed...

    In order of least scare to most scary, I'd list them as:

    Georgetown
    Louisville
    Indiana
    Gonzaga
    Duke

    Gonzaga scares me because of their big men.

    Georgetown would dictate the tempo against Iowa State. ISU isn't disciplined enough to beat them. It wouldn't be a blowout, but Georgetown would win comfortably.

    I refuse to acknowledge this possibility.

    Re: If we were to get an 8/9 seed...

    Exactly why do people think Gonzaga would be a good matchup? I feel like they're being voted for because they are a mid-major.

    The teams with great defenses don't scare me as much, since we score on anybody.

    Georgetown would be the one I'd actually pick us to beat.

    Gonzaga would be a bad matchup IMO, although they easily could run into a team that could beat them early.

    Louisville would be my 2nd choice
