The crown jewel of the tournament's afternoon games, all eyes will be on Doug McDermott to see if he has his Bluejays primed for a tournament run.

Mick Cronin’s team made a deep run into the NCAAs last season but has not been looking the same in the 2013 form. The Bearcats can release all memory of their middling season with a win over the ‘Jays.

Will efficient offense or devastating defense win the day? Tune in for how the clash of styles will ultimately turn out.

In what is sure to be one of the weekend’s best games, the chess match between head coaches Jay Wright and Roy Williams alone should be reason to tune in. 

Nevertheless, both teams like to get up and down the court and satisfy fans with quick shots and instant offense.  

Expect James Michael McAdoo to have a huge impact inside and to be the key difference-maker on the boards. In addition, watch for P.J. Hairston to stretch the lead from beyond the arc as well.

Saturday: No. 12 Ole Miss vs. No. 5 Wisconsin, TruTV, 12:40 p.m.

Wisconsin possesses five wins against the top ten this season, credited to coach Bo Ryan’s blue-collar style of play. It can be ugly, but for old-school basketball fans, Ben Brust and Co. exemplify a blast from the past.

On the other side, Marshall Henderson will try to outshoot the pesky Badgers in what this writer considers the best game of the weekend.

Henderson’s antics are a sight to behold as he has become one of the country’s most polarizing stars with his post-play antics. You don’t want to miss out on his next big play.
