    ISU vs. UNC - Opens as Pick'em

    It looks like ISU vs. UNC has opened as a pick'em. I hate to even say this, but I wonder what the line would have been if Georges was in action?

    I would guess ISU -4 if Georges was playing. I think a pick'em is a testament to Fred's coaching ability.

    That and the overall talent. We may not be deep, but we have a lot of talent.

    Carolina doesn't have a ton of size, either so ISU still has a good shot at them.

    Huh ? Did you just say this? UNC has more size and athletic bigs than any team left in tourney maybe.

    Re: ISU vs. UNC - Opens as Pick'em

    We got to hit shots. Simple as that. Kane needs to take on the role of driving and dishing to Hogue & Ejim. Monte needs to play like he did yesterday, and Naz needs to hit some threes. Thomas, Edozie, Gibson, SDW, need to contribute in a positive way. Defense is what worries me the most, but I was worried about that with Georges out there. Expect a layup fest for UNC. Expect Ejim/Kane to take on Niang's role of inside out type mismatch player. Both of them can hit the outside shot.

    This team is capable of a couple more wins in this tourney. And if MSU or Nova gets knocked out, who knows how far we can go.

    I just hope Kane doesn't try to do to much & force some things. I hope he continues to play his game like an animal!!

    no, they don't. they may be bigger than ISU but to say they're the biggest team in tourney is completely moronic

    Re: ISU vs. UNC - Opens as Pick'em

    Nate Silver and Co. give us a 56% chance of winning, updated this morning at 1:22 am. They say their model accounts for injuries, so I would assume Niang is factored in.

    Also, if anyone is in Vegas and can get a bet on Tennessee to make the final four / win the championship, they have extremely good odds based on what I assume the lines are for the Vols.

    Wait, I thought someone on this message board said we had no chance at beating North Carolina without Niang.

    Re: ISU vs. UNC - Opens as Pick'em

    I heard they have 3 guys over 6'9" that start or get a lot of minutes. Is that true or not?
