Whether it is individual talents going at it, trying to will their teams through, or storied rivals facing off, here are some dream potential battles that would really stand out at this year’s NCAA tournament:
No. 4 Michigan vs. No. 13 South Dakota State
A.K.A. Trey Burke vs. Nate Wolters. Burke’s going to be a lottery pick and is one of the NCAA’s premier point guards, but Wolters can score at will and has great size, so there’s a chance of an upset. Wolters dropped 53 points in a game and averages 23.1 on the season. It’s also neat to watch Michigan because they make you feel old, since the sons of Glenn Robinson and Tim Hardaway are key contributors.
No. 7 Creighton vs. No. 10 Cincinnati
Big-time scorer Doug McDermott and Creighton’s strong offence will be tested against Cincinnati’s defence, which is the 15th best in college basketball.
