Sweet 16 2012: Baylor and More Winners Headed to Elite Eight
Baylor may rock the loudest uniforms in the tournament, but they also have one of the most exciting and deep rosters left, and that is why they are moving onto the next round.
I was getting a little tired of waiting to see which team would really decimate my bracket or hit another great buzzer-beater.
The NCAA Tournament is back after a few days off to let all the action of the first week sink in. We now have a few games to measure and size up the remaining field.
Here is a breakdown of the teams that are about to enjoy yet another day of glory as they head deeper into the weekend and that much closer to the Final Four.
The Baylor Bears are loud and they don't care what you think about their brash uniforms. The alarming fact is that they are getting wins despite star Perry Jones III going through somewhat of a dry spell.
The big man averaged more than 13 points per contest during the regular season, but has just nine through the initial going in this tournament.
The few days of respite couldn't have come at a better time. There is no way that Jones runs cold, and it will be the difference in the Xavier game.
I agree that Kendall Marshall's injury is huge, but so is the depth on this team. While Ohio will rely on DJ Cooper to be as hot as ever, the Tar Heels have a number of weapons that can catch fire.
With the being said, I don't see a hobbled Marshall leading a championship team. This wrist injury will serve North Carolina an eventual loss, it just won't be in the Sweet 16.
More than that, Reggie Keely is in store for a wake-up call as North Carolina's defense shuts down the Bobcats big man.
Upset city, baby.
Which team will march farther in the tourney?
Syracuse, you have been playing some inspired ball amid another huge hit to the locker room, but the Badgers are going to end all that goodwill.
Wisconsin has a stifling defense and will have Syracuse well below the production they are used to. There is no Fab Melo on the inside to rely on, and that will allow the Badgers to get in the paint as well as hit from the perimeter.
They will stretch the floor and have Syracuse on their heels all game. This will be a close one, but a game that the Orange will eventually lose.
