College Basketball’s Best Headed For Houston
If I would've told you that Kansas, Oregon, and Virginia weren't going to be in Houston to compete for a National Championship last week, you'd have probably thought I was nuts, but that's just the case after another great weekend for college hoops.
The biggest surprise heading towards the biggest stage in college basketball? Syracuse, easily. The 10-seed is no stranger to success in March, but certainly wasn't projected to make a stiff claim this year. Jim Boeheim has certainly put the captain hat on and steered the Orange in the right direction. That team will take on North Carolina next Saturday for the day's late game.
The early game will feature two teams that are just damn good. The Oklahoma Sooners, led by Buddy Hield, who you might've heard of, have all the potential in the world, but have to get by a Villanova team that is as tough as they come. That game will be on first, starting at 5:09 next Saturday.
Who's going to the 'ship?! We'll know next Saturday night...
