This weeks podcast has “The Boys” helping you understand March Madness 2017
This year’s NCAA Tournament has a chance to be just as good as 2016, when Kris Jenkins capped March Madness the most dramatic way possible with a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to win Villanova a title.
The Sunshine Boys podcast goes into great detail about who are the best teams in the tournament as well as who are the “sleepers,” that might just help you win your office pool.
Ira Kaufman, Joe Henderson and Jim Williams are joined by Joey Johnston and Tim Williams as the gang does a real “deep dive,” into this year’s edition of March Madness.
The Boys show some love to the top teams in the field like Villanova. The defending national champions are the top overall seed and on a roll. No need to start anywhere else.
Kansas. The Jayhawks may have had an early exit in the Big 12 Tournament, but they have one of the most talented rosters anywhere.
North Carolina. So good, even a loss to rival Duke in the ACC Tournament wasn’t enough to knock them down from a No. 1 seed.
Gonzaga. Call them overrated all you want, these Zags are deep, athletic and probably the best team coach Mark Few has had in the Inland Northwest.
Arizona. Pac-12 Tournament and co-regular season champions have coach Sean Miller eyeing his first Final Four.
Duke. Blue Devils had their share of struggles, but appear to be peaking at the right time
The Boys also talk about some must watch games that will happen this weekend.
Northwestern vs. Vanderbilt, West Region, Thursday in Salt Lake City. The Wildcats waited 78 years to play in the NCAA Tournament and the Commodores want to spoil it.
UNC-Wilmington vs. Virginia, East Region, Friday in Buffalo. The Seahawks were 10th nationally with 85.2 points per game. The Cavaliers barely give that up in two games.
Michigan vs. Oklahoma State, Midwest Region, Friday in Indianapolis. Two of the nation’s best in offensive efficiency will put the ball in the basket.
Iona vs. Oregon, Midwest Region, Friday in Sacramento. The cameras may need to stay on wide angles to keep track of these frenetic teams.
Dayton vs. Wichita State, South Region, Friday in Indianapolis. Two mid-majors looking to make a major run through the bracket.
Kentucky vs. UCLA, South Region final. Here’s hoping they get that far. The first game in Las Vegas was epic.
