"Diving back into what's going on in the NC, double a tournament Gonzaga right now, on top of creating by 2083 to 63 winding down here in this game about 25 seconds to go Jordan. I think your cover is looking pretty good, buddy. Yeah, Gonzaga and the reason why I like them and 13.5 years I felt like they'd run away with this game is Zags Creighton. His team likes to play fast, put up a lot of points and they came into this game, saying we're gonna be who we are, even against Gonzaga, Their explosive offense and Exactly said. Okay, cool. You guys could probably hang for maybe 20 minutes where they kept it within single digits off suede being tended to half But Gonzaga just has too many weapons. They're better in every position. Gonzaga shoots a high percentage because they get whatever shot they want. You get a lot of layups, 50 points of their 83 coming in the paint. Gonzaga just overwhelmed, Creating. He tried to run with him. Can't do it. Gonzaga and Baylor still feel like they're on a collision course. 21 seeds that have hold held serve and look the part. As a Gonzaga Creighton game goes fine on his eggs within 83 to 65 to advance to the elite eight. And so, um, poodle, give one on your list you both one for one. So far, it's never doubt either sway ever in doubt. Let's get to the other games that we're going to see later today earlier today, we reflected on what we saw yesterday. Some other teams looking to punch their tickets to the elite eight. Next up later on, starting at five Eastern. Wanna see Michigan take on Florida State, Michigan, the one seed Florida State. The four C. J got four to state in my final four, which I feel you should know. You said earlier. You didn't know Yeah, I know. I'm sorry. I definitely knew you have Florida State in that's kind of what's kept your bracket alive. Yeah, And I think you should feel pretty confident, although not now because I'm saying, I think Florida State's gonna win and we know how I've been in this bracket. It's I've been on the opposite side of a lot of them here lately. I just think Florida State matches up very well with Michigan. And that is half the battle. When you're playing this Michigan team is just he have the personnel to guard him. Under Dickinson, the big man for Michigan seven FT two And that is a match up nightmare for anybody typically safe for a few teams that have a seven footer and is that seven footer skilled enough athletic enough move well enough to defend a guy like Dickinson, Florida State. They play 11 guys, two of the 11 or 27, footers, copra visas. One of them in gum is the other that comes off the bench, and these guys were 7 to 173. I do not know this. But Florida State ranked first among a SEC teams with an average of 78 points per games. They put some numbers up now. Well, they play 11 guys shape but going back to what they have that size so they could guard 100 Dickinson one on one down low. And when you don't have to throw a double of Dickinson, that's the disadvantage. Teams Air Force because they don't have a big guy to throw a double team of Dickinson. 100. Dickinson is a very skilled passer. And so on. A double comes somebody's open and he's throwing it out to an open shooter and all four guys on the floor surrounded Dickinson are deadly three point shooters that advantage not gain in this game because Florida State will defend him one on one down low and have a guy who can limit him. Can they be effective defensively? Also, Dickinson could get in foul trouble defending the bigs of Florida state. Florida state's defense as versatile guys who could switch everything and no advantages gained Franz Wagner's 69 on the perimeter for Michigan. That can also be a mismatch for other teams that don't have the guys for state as the guys another advantage taken away. For state also shot makers. I think they could even turn over Michigan in this game. I think Florida State should be able to control this game throughout. I see this one is a Florida state team winning by seven or eight points. All right, Let's move on Alabama and U C L A. U C L, A The double digit seed 11. Trying to take down the number two seed in Alabama. You see, Ellie likes to play too much slower place in Alabama. Um, the Crimson Tide beat Maryland to get here. You see l a blue out Abilene Christian. I mean, Was able to do that game on radio, U C L A. And Michigan Seeing the first four Michigan State won the game for all of 39 minutes. The pace in that one favored, you see, because they were able to control it. You can control it against Michigan State team. It's not is offensively gifted or in the same stratosphere is Alabama's offensively Jaime Hawkins. For this for this U. C. L. A team is a sophomore. He's six FT. Six. He was an all conference defender in the Pac 12. He has a second team all Conference performer. He went off for 27 in that game versus Michigan State, and his numbers have not been pedestrian. Here put them but I popping other He's going for about 13 and eight in the next two games After that first four game that was a win versus Michigan State. I saw him go off earlier in the season for 25 Excuse me late in the season. Regular season versus Arizona. He went off for 25 there. This guy has explosive scoring potential. You're going to need it from Hall cast because Obama's gonna light up the scoreboard Now the only way to prevent Bama from lighting up the scoreboard is like you said, Shade dictating tempo, maximizing possessions U C l A is very good offensively, make crone and typically has defensive led programs. They don't have very much defense, so they have to make this a maximize possession game. Take care of the basketball, defend the three point line and limit what Herb Jones brings us a facilitator for Alabama, but I expect this game to play close with U C L A having a chance late to win this game, Okay, let's go to the last one. The nightcap. It's organ and use us. Si tu Pac 12 teams that have Based off one other time earlier this season, and that resulted in a 70 to 58 win in favor of us See They were also Donna starter and that in that game and had only one day to prepare us see our where he bounded the Ducks in that game 39 to 26. But J organ couldn't really get anything going offensively in that game. And I know you think this is a very different ducks team that's going to face the Trojans tonight. Yeah, organs more healthy. This game, which is huge as you mentioned organ also knocked out some shots and looked about as well oiled and offensive machine is you could look in this tournament, and they've only played one game because they had the forefront.

"They have the white jerseys with The Crimson Trail. 2000 fans again in here just like we had the first game when we saw Colorado hit 16 threes and raced past Georgetown. Good mix of both fan base is here. Two players ready to tip it up its center court. It's Bruner for Alabama. It is Junior Joseph for Iona. And it is Iona that gets the tap and they go with the first possession right toe left on your radio dial the 15 seed here in the East region and in early whistling to tie up 30 ft. From the basket as junior Joseph got tied up by Jordan Brooder just kind of casually carrying the ball and Alabama will get it. Iona will not be used to this length and pressure that Alabama will place on them on the perimeter. Must do a good job as I mentioned in the keys of taking care of the basketball getting into offense, and you said it almost 16 turnovers game. Not a good start now Alabama their first possession here. Driving right inside off balance runner and it drops down off the bounce for Jade and Shackleford, their leading scorer. Extremely good at all three levels. Is Shackleford scoring at that time, a nice little left hand floater over the top. He had 21 points and the S E. C championship game against Dallas Shoot. Now I own a back on the offensive in Delhi, Junior Joseph spins to the elbow, then kicks it out to the wing to Chroma. Now it's John Louise with tend to shoot at the top of the key uses his pivot foot gives it up gives The timeline was six on the shot, clock left hand dribble to the elbow out to the baseline. Three on the way missed everything. John Louise and in Alabama rebound up ahead all alone her Jones and he slams it with two hands on the baseline for nothing. Crimson tide the ability to get from defense to offense. Wow! Two passes up ahead quick dunk from Jones and not the start that Iona was hoping for the Alabama fans that have made the track here to Indianapolis, chanting defense to our left. I am going inside Nelli Jr Joseph on the block 10 FT. One hand hook is good for Nelli Jr. Joseph mention. He's a native of Nigeria Young freshman now on the other and driving down the lane, and a bump on the floor is Herb Jones started to drive it and he was impeded by doing Koroma Jones is such a difficult covered the college game 68. Very long and versatile. He plays the point guard position for Alabama coach NATO's NATO's his crew inbounding underneath her. Jones throws it underneath the gold. Bruner Bruner one on one with junior Joseph, but instead he's gonna pass it outside the arc. Beyond Ellis, driving inside on the angle, Girls pass around the wing catch and release three knocked down three pointer from Petty and it's 72 out Obama Petty 71st made three on the season 305th in his career that's in Alabama record. Little over two minutes. Gone by, guess gives it up top Russell catch and shoot a three He hit the side of the backboard, but an offensive rebound comes down to Corona to reset ball. Never hit the rim. So the shot clock is it fog. Koroma tries to feed the post in the ball. This kicks So that will move the shot clock 20. Actually, that is a big time break for Iona. They were not aware that the shot clock was winding down after that, Miss three from straightaway the kickball as you mentioned resets to 20. Early substitution. Dylan von comes in for Iona, Nate Oats, wearing a snazzy plaid, red and black blazer on the sideline with no tie on barking out the orders Iona looking to get it in Did you get it into Ross? He bounces down the post and Ross cuts and gets it back and puts it up on him with the left hand off the window. First bucket 74, Alabama leading Iona 17 23 1st half Over on the left wing Petty backs it up with that long hair. He's going to shoot another three petty on Lee hit the backboard on the right side. I own a rebound out ahead, John Louise, one on two in the lane flips it up with the right hand short, petty rebound for Obama. 74 Crimson Tide left wing 13 Shackleford back of the iron High in the air. Iona grabs it, so both teams putting up some shots early in the shot clock. Santa gifts sets, the senior will step into an 18 footer off the screen, and he knocks it down just for the right of the key. Before a run for Iona Back within 1 76. 16 35 on the clock. Over on the left wing Herb Jones to the right side. Now Bruner shot fake down the lane against two defenders. Wild shot No good. Put back. No good. How about the third time? This time he's blocked, But they're going to say he's also fouled by Dylan von I. That's what burner brings to this Alabama front court in aggressive mentality on the glass. Over four rebounds per game. The first one as you mentioned kind of an ugly off balance, little throw, but his activity allowed him to stay active and go get the ball, resulting in two free throws. 70% foul shooter, The yield grad transfer Spends a ball on the left hand takes another dribble..

"Starting to allow his team to pressure the ball like we saw a little bit for VCU when they made that final four run back in 2011. So if you want a team that warrants can only make the final four But to me can win a championship and it's It's crazy to say because we talked about those one seeds and pretty much maybe the blood through three Michigan the little vulnerable come there from the tournament study on Friday, but Texas to me as a shot to make the final four because of how good those guards are in those bigs are athletically a shot to win it all. Give me a couple of players that people should go out of their way to watch in this tournament. Take Tony and number one so much in Texas that played Oklahoma State in the Big 12 tournament. Final Key. Cunningham is one of the best players in college basketball likely number one overall pick Evan Mobley, I guess might have something to say about that. If you see him make a run of the dance, But Kate is is so explosive and games and that the best defender and at the best So, guys, if you're gonna feel put if he's gonna match up one on one against your best player, But he is elite offensively and he could score for stretches. Go on, you know 10. Oh, spurts himself. So Oklahoma State, they have the pieces to make the final four running and from the big 12. That's the best part of the big 12. There's so many teams that can make runs and Caked on him. He definitely take Oklahoma State on a big run in the big dance from the SEC. I want to go back to Alabama, not the best offense of player, not the most offensively gifted player in college basketball, but One, the SEC player of the year. Herb Jones is an elite defensive player for the tide. And he really stems Alabama's defense because it start their offense can a night their offense in transition because of his ability. Great turnovers with his ball pressure and also protect the rim tune out of that shop locker, so not the sexiest name in college basketball Lawrence, but he is an elite two way player when his offenses going like it was and what he could really run the floor in transition as a room runner. Cause of our athletic He is at 68 69. What do you and cost that was going to do tonight? Or going to yell at each other. First and foremost, I'd probably go out of rants about he's he's gonna yell it be for talking about whatever you're not talking about what he wants to talk about. It's gonna be a great I study without air bit. We just have one of those relationships where people were crazy a type, so that's why we love each other. But we're to break down all the regions. The teams that we think go to Goa are going to go out of run and potentially, but it all like eventually Texas where to break down the bedding mind that stand out for the round of 64 for the first four.

"Like the big stay and wait and try to cut off the water traded guard but not a lot of good looks like the books are making aren't necessarily like crazy ones either like they've they've had a lot of time and space to get it off what I think that this is why I love watching Alabama and why I think they're five out offense is so strong is because they put teams in unfamiliar positions defensively through the way that they actually space the court with NBA space and not just like college spacing and be with the way they've recruited right like wage.

I'm sure to but like the way that they play they give everyone the green light and I think that frankly like a posing college coaches don't really know how to deal with that yet. They don't know how to deal with playing Five out offenses because so many college defenses are based on limiting the song based on, you know, just cutting off any sort of driving angle collapsing on drivers constantly collapsing on pick-and-roll players, like a lot of teams play a drop coverage very few facts switched. Like it's that's fine like given the geometry of the college court and the way that most college offenses play. I don't even think that's a bad idea. But whenever you see a team like Alabama that just puts opposing defenses in space constantly and makes them make like the worse you have to consistently make a better decision of two bad decisions, which is e, Or I have to tag this roller or I have to leave John Petty is a shooter. I think it's just really hard for a lot of college Defenders to do things whenever they're consistently told to do something else because very few other teams run five out offense. They're clearly rolling right now why I like your 60621 Bap a national championship is I remember when when John beilein was at Michigan that was always the guy when you ask opposing coaches, I think one time they asked Tony Bennett who was like the worst time to prepare for or something something along those lines for like the NC double a tournament is John beilein and just cuz the style the reads the cuts Alabama maybe the answer this year a little bit for some because it is 5 hour. Okay herb Jones is like kind of a point guard and kind of like Center times and you got these shooters running around and even their bigs can shoot. So it's You have to pick which way you want to kind of stopped them and it's not just like this easy fix of like okay, here's how we Scout a few sets. Here's their underneath out-of-bounds like their style is just different than you'll see on any given day and SEC know it really is and I think that I'm telling you like if I was any Alabama's gonna have to pay to keep Nate oats from some of these big schools and look like if I was in NBA team and I was trying to get really creative I might take a look at NATO's at this point..
