Gotta go with OSU/Louisville for Saturdays games. Unless Florida can get Dieng in foul trouble it's gonna be extremely tough. Florida MUST not rely on the three and must take it to the hoop. If they float around the perimeter they are just playing into Pitino's hands and Louisville will win soundly. Get Dieng in foul trouble, I like UF.
Ohio St. is gonna be too tough for Cuse at the end IMO. Craft will draw the assignment of Dion Waiters which will be the matchup of the tournament so far. Sullinger vs Christmas is where Cuse is gonna severely miss Fab Melo. At the end Sullinger/Deshaun Thomas will be too much for the Fab-less cuse.
Yeah besides Beal and Boynton, you aren't going to see our perimeter players drive too much. Hell, Murphy our 4 shoots more from the perimeter than the post.
UF will still shoot the 3s because that's what got them there. It's not like they are just chucking anytime they step over half court. They really work it around in their offense. They set a lot of screens on and off ball to get people open. UF 3 point shots are usually after working it around.
And considering Deing will alter our shots, driving might not work all that well. It'd be nice to get him in foul trouble but it most likely will come from working it in the post to Young.
