I have the Sooners beating Oregon in my fantasy bracket and also have then as 2.5 OT favorites. The three headed monster of Woodard, Cousins, and Heild is a difficult task for any team. Oregon is a good team and the committee was correct having them #1 seed over MSU. They have balance, quickness, and height. However, they have not faced a team like Oklahoma. What most people don’t realize is that the Sooners play some good defense. The Ducks perimeter defense is loose and that could be dangerous versus the Sooners 2nd ranked 3 Point offense. 5 stars best bet Oklahoma. +1.5
John Fisher Las Vegas, Nevada WINNER….OKLAHOMA +1..DUCKS EXCELLENT TEAM…However BEST PLAYER REIGNS SUPREME…VERY MUCH LIKE KIMBA WALKER DID FOR UCONN DURING THEIR TOURNAMENT RUN!OKLAHOMA 80-68
Defense defense defense. Villanova has played the best help defense in the tournament. In my fantasy bracket I have Kansas playing Oklahoma but it’s difficult to ignore this Nova team. I figured they would choke one game and have a bad three pointing night. It doesn’t appear that that will happen any time soon. Kansas is suffering from a couple of injuries. G Greene is suffering from back spasms and Pg Mason did not look 100% versus Maryland as he is suffering from leg cramps. Add to this G Graham was not 100% as he had leg cramps the whole game. If Graham does not score in DDs I don’t see Kansas winning this game. 4 Stars Nova +2.5
John Fisher Las Vegas, Nevada
WINNER..NOVA+2.5…64-59….MASON for Kansas played well but again the reason I took Nova like Oklahoma because of guard play.
