    More WBB buzz

    Here are some expert pics from espn.com

    Here is a place to vote on various outcome questions. ISU was picked as the second most probably upset. People really don't like us!

    To their credit, ISU doesn't exactly have a great NCAA tournament track record.

    I think we have a decent track record. Making a couple sweet 16s and an elite 8 is pretty good for a program that was dead 10 years ago

    Washington did beat A&M this year too. Fennelly said in an article that they're a senior dominated team, which are always good picks in the NCAA Tournament.

    Glad it is an ISU "home game" at Williams Arena. Lots of Cy fans in the Minny area and also driving north for the game.

    Interesting--in the 'Possible Cinderella' category of the expert picks: ISU #6 over Georgia #3 and Washington #11 over ISU #6.

    We are also in the easiest region according to most.

    I'd say the upset & cinderella picks are probably valid as we seemingly live and die by the 3...if its falling we can beat anyone, and if its not we may not be able to beat anyone.

    I agree that we have upset potential for a run to the regional finals and that we could be upset in game one. I think our inside game is largely responsible for our being here. This is not a donut team - there is no hole in the middle. Wieben, Ross and Pierson in some combination have made vital contributions to key wins during the season. If the outside shots aren't falling, we have hope by working it inside and hence the hope for advancing.
