The East Bracket features one of the best matchups in the first round as the 12th seeded UNCW Seahawks take on the 5th seeded Virginia Cavaliers.
The winner of this contest will take on the winner of the Florida Gators/ETSU matchup.
The Seahawks controlled every game of their CAA Tournament run and are poised to be one of those teams who could make some noise in this year’s NCAA Tournament.
UNCW has rattled off 7 straight wins and are playing extremely well. Offensively, this is one of the quickest and best shooting teams in the nation.
The Seahawks are averaging 85.2 points per game as they shoot 48% from the field on average. Both are top tier marks in the NCAA and they’ll certainly need to be on point when it comes to scoring as the Cavaliers are one of the toughest defenses in the nation.
The Seahawks have 4 players who average 12 points or more are extremely deep. Expect them to rotate a lot of different players into this one, as they like to get fresh legs consistently in.
The Virginia Cavaliers were fighting for a top spot in the rankings earlier this season, but a 4 game losing streak in ACC play really threw them off track.
Virginia got things going again, but a slow start to the 2nd half against Notre Dame in the ACC Tournament did them in as they were bounced.
The loss really magnified the flaws of this Cavaliers team.
They are easily the best defensively. Virginia gives up just 55.6 points per game, which ranks first in the nation.
However, the Cavaliers are putting in just 66 points per game, which is one of the worst marks amongst the NCAA.
If they go through a few cold stretches, especially early on, they can easily find themselves down big as this UNCW offense runs and scores in bunches very quickly.
