Sounds a bit like a hunting trip with the Mountaineers taking on the Bison doesn’t it.
WVU should be able to overwhelm Bucknell but they are not the most reliable team. Double digits makes me nervous.
West Virginia Mountaineers
When WVU dominated Kansas at home everyone started paying attention. Since then they have been OK but not exactly in championship format.
The challenge for the Mountaineers is their offense. When they have to set up they struggle but if they are turning teams over a lot they can run you out of the game quickly.
It would be a surprise if they did not this one but I do not have a lot of confidence in this group. They are very much a system play as opposed to high level talent.
We will know in the first 5 minutes of the game whether they are going to blitz through or be challenge. In game wagering might be the best option.
Bucknell won the Patriot League regular season and tournament titles this season. They are no stranger to the NCAAs and are always an intriguing sleeper option.
They are a good shooting team but they do not usually face the kind of pressure that WVU is going to apply.
Zach Thomas is the leading scorer at 16ppg. He is able to beat you from inside and beyond the arc – 41% on threes. Inside Nana Foulland might be the best big man on either team.
PG Stephen Brown has a nifty assist to turnover ratio. He is going to have to work extra hard to protect the ball and get the Bison into their offense on a regular basis. He can make shots too.

West Virginia is a heavy favourite and deservedly so but this is a buyer beware situation. I am going to stay away from the side but if you are doing a bracket you can advance WVU.
