Sweet 16 Preview

(4) Wisconsin vs (1) Syracuse

The loss of Fab Melo has not seem to hurt the Orange much yet. Both of these teams can shoot the three well as Syracuse shot 67 percent in their win over Kansas State. Wisconsin won a grind it out game against Vanderbilt led by Jordan Taylor’s 14 points, 3 assists and 2 rebounds. The Badgers will have their hands full inside with Rakeem Christmas and Kris Joseph who had 16 combined rebounds in their 3rd round win. The Orange must take better control of the basketball against a very good Wisconsin defense, who forced Vanderbilt to turn it over 12 times. The inside presence and the depth of the bench will lead the Orange to the elite 8.

Syracuse 72, Wisconsin 65

Rakeem Christmas's inside presence could be an issue for the Badgers.

(4) Louisville vs (1) Michigan State

The biggest issue going into this game for the Cardinals will be finding a way to stop Draymond Green. Green had 16 points, 13 rebounds and 6 assists against St. Louis. Gorgui Deng had a nice game scoring 6 points and grabbing 10 rebounds in their win over New Mexico, but will need to stay out of foul trouble guarding Green. Kyle Kuric can help on the boards, slip out and shoot the three and at 6’4 he is a match-up nightmare for the Spartans guards. The battle between Keith Appling and Peyton Siva will be fun to watch as they both are very athletic and can score. When it gets to this point in the tournament Tom Izzo just gets more out of his teams than most, the Spartans move on.
