The 2014 NCAA Men’s Tournament hasn’t been at a loss for drama. Every day of March Madness ’14 seems to feature at least one must see game. The early stars of the tournament were the Dayton Flyers. Dayton knocked off Ohio State, their bitter in-state rival, Syracuse, a perennial favorite, and Stanford, the ultimate athletic academic institution.
Sadly Dayton’s Cinderella run struck midnight yesterday when they played Florida, the tournament’s overall number one team. The other game Saturday, Wisconsin vs. Arizona, came down to the wire in overtime. In the end Wisconsin pulled out the victory, and punched their tickets to the Final Four in Dallas.
Let’s take a look at the schedule of Elite Eight games for Sunday March 30th.
East: Michigan State vs. Connecticut at New York, 2:20 p.m., CBS (announcers: Vern Lundquist, Bill Raftery, Allie LaForce)
Connecticut has been dominating in their first three games, but now they run into the Michigan State juggernaut.
Pick – Michigan State
Midwest: Kentucky vs. Michigan at Indianapolis, 5:05 p.m., CBS (announcers: Jim Nantz, Greg Anthony, Tracy Wolfson)
After Kentucky’s win over Louisville they have the feeling of a team of destiny. The Kentucky recruiting class has been described as “the best of all time”. They just needed the pressure of the Tournament to come together.
Pick – Kentucky
