    Surprise Tournament Teams

    Who do you have going far into the tournament that isn't a 1 or a 2 seed..

    I think Butler is a team that can make a lot of noise. I have them going to the Eliete 8. Also, New Mexico..

    Butler has won 20 straight! And according to ESPN, they are a great FT shooting team. They have a tough draw, but if they play the way they are capable of, I see them beating Syracuse because of their injured C.

    Re: Surprise Tournament Teams

    Texas, not really what you would call a surprise team, but as an 8 seed you would have to call it that. I really think they will cause some match-up problems with Kentucky in the second round. Pittman will give Cousins all he can handle, Ward and Brown will give Wall and Bledsoe a tough match up. I could see this game going either way, but hope the Longhorns pull it out. Other than that I really like Siena.

    Re: Surprise Tournament Teams

    This is borderline but I will take Georgetown to the ship. Cornell is another team that could scare some people and make it a ways.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    Baylor to the elite eight


    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams

    I think Cornell could surprise. Also, Georgetown is a team to watch.

    Re: Surprise Tournament Teams

    If BYU can get past Kansas State, I can see them making some big noise going into the Salt Lake region...
