ANAHEIM, Calif-The Honda Center will be rocking as Uconn
does battle with San Diego State in a sweet sixteen match-up between two teams
that were seriously underestimated at the start of the season.
Bettors are faced with a lot of moving parts for Thursday night’s
Sweet 16 matchup between West Region No. 1 seed Duke (32-4 SU, 20-15 ATS) and
No. 5 Arizona (29-7 SU, 18-15-1 ATS) at the Honda Center in Anaheim (9:45 PM
Friday’s Southwest bracket semifinal duels at San Antonio’s
Alamodome assure at least one low-seeded squad to reach the Elite Eight.
Just like last year, a No. 10, a No. 11, and
a No. 12 seed have made it to the NCAA Tournament’s Sweet 16. For their
backers' sake they had all better put up a more profitable showing than did
their counterparts in 2010.
Duke faces another big challenge en-route to its second
straight national championship with Derrick Williams and the Wildcats standing
in the way.
The Sweet 16 gets underway officially at 7:15
PM ET on Thursday when No. 2 San Diego St. meets No. 3 Connecticut.
The United Center, Chicago, Illinois will play host to the number
seven seed Texas A&M as they try to get past the number ten seed Florida
State in the Southwest region.
The No. 2 San Diego State Aztecs and No. 15 Northern Colorado
Bears rolled through their respective conference tourneys, becoming champs of
the Mountain West and Big Sky, respectively.
