Second-Round Day 2 Analysis

Sue Ogrocki/Associated Press

As Round 2 of the 2014 NCAA tournament continues on Friday, the same ongoing trends will continue to be prevalent.

Top-seeded teams should continue to advance without a problem; however, expect a couple more upsets, as No. 5 through No. 8 seeds will probably leave the tournament early.

One such game is No. 8 Gonzaga against No. 9 Oklahoma State. This game could really go either way, and it should be highly contested. But, since the return of Marcus Smart, the Cowboys have looked dynamic.

Gonzaga is a very well-rounded team; however, it may find it difficult to keep pace with the Cowboys' high-octane offense. This matchup has all the makings of an upset.

Another game to watch out for is No. 6 Massachusetts against No. 11 Tennessee.

The Volunteers have been tearing it up lately, and after their Round 1 victory over Iowa, they are poised to do some damage going forward.

Tennessee has won six of its last seven games—losing to No. 1 Florida along the way. In these seven games, the Volunteers lit up the scoreboard, scoring at least 72 points in five of the contests while holding opposing teams to 68 points or less in each game.

Massachusetts has been struggling of late, dropping three of its last five games—two of the three losses came against unranked teams. If the Minutemen can't right the ship, they are in line for an early exit on Friday.
