03/17/2015

Hey y’all it’s about that time! March Madness is finally about to be underway today with the first two games of the First Four.

We have two games tonight with Hampton playing Manhattan for the right to play Kentucky on Thursday and BYU against Ole Miss for the right to go to play Xavier.

1. Hampton vs. Manhattan 6:40 ET on TruTv

This should be an interesting game between to unknown teams. I personally think that Manhattan will win this game for one reason only. That reason is experience. The Jaspers played in the big dance last year. That experience will pay big dividends for them. They will know what the stage is like and know exactly what to expect.

2. BYU vs. Ole Miss 9:10 ET on TruTv

I think that this is going to be a blow out in the form of BYU. BYU gives you one of the most explosive offenses in collegiate basketball. BYU will win this game going away.  Ole Miss does not have a good enough defense to slow this team down. If BYU wins this game, they could potentially make a Final Four run.

The reality is that during the month that we love know as March we never know what’s going to happen. Could the winner of Hampton vs Manhattan beat Kentucky. Sure, anything is possible during this month. At this time of year, it’s all about matchups.  It should be interesting to see how tonight goes.  Feel free to follow me on Twitter via  @TeenageSportGuy or via Fancred at http://fancred.com/#users/35296/posts
