Virginia Tech is your 8-seed in the East, trying to advance for the right to play Villanova in the Round of 32.
The Hokies lay claim to the rarest feat in college basketball this season: beating Virginia. It wasn’t particularly surprising because of the way they can shoot the three-ball.
Virginia Tech averaged right around 40 percent from outside all season before a blip at the end moved the team average down under 39.
Still, it’s a balanced offense with five guys averaging double-figures this season. Kerry Blackshear Jr. matches up with Alabama’s size inside. In fact, it feels like these two teams match up quite well with one another on paper.
Alabama Crimson Tide
Alabama bowed out in the semifinals of the SEC Tournament to the eventual-champion Kentucky Wildcats. It was enough to let ‘Bama fans enjoy Selection Sunday even before they heard their school’s name called.
It sure feels like Alabama’s purpose in the NCAA Tournament is going to be all about letting Collin Sexton show the world what he’s capable of.
Sexton is a sure-fire one and done lottery pick and his performance in the tournament could go a long way in determining how high he actually goes.
That can be a good thing or a bad thing for the Crimson Tide because if he’s rolling, he could carry them in this game and even in a crazy scenario against the most bullet-proof team in the field in the second round.
But if he gets frustrated and hurts his team with selfish play, Virginia Tech’s balance is going to look superior in this one.
