Golden Hurricane from Tulsa will meet Wolverines from Michigan. Both teams are almost equally strong.
However, Tulsa has recently showed the weak side to the Memphis Tigers and lost the game with an awful score. It seems that even players did not expect this match with Michigan.
Now, Michigan will have a great chance to show themselves in the First Four. At least, their fans think it will be an easy victory.
Give Tulsa a chance. They also want to beat Notre Dame as six seeds.
You will be able to watch the game this Wednesday, 9:10 PM in Dayton.
Yes, Michigan will have an advantage in geography with the arena in Dayton. And they also have Derrick Walton, who according to Wikipedia was named as the 3rd best newbie in Big Ten by the Sporting News.
He and his pal Irvin from the team played in Elite Eight run 2014. Their rivals have more experience in the big game in NCAA. Their former trainer Danny Manning helped them to try their best in 2014.
During this season, Michigan lost only one game to Ohio. They are full of energy and ready to show themselves.
Tulsa lay their hopes on Shaquille Harrison, their own Derrick Walton, and James Woodard can show his best fighting against another Michigan’ star Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman.
Michigan can lead in the frontcourts, with the Duncan Robinson and Zak Irvin as the shooters.
However, as to the bench of Michigan, it is weak. Wolverines did not rely on it. And Tulsa will have its chance in changing the players.
Michigan recently won two brilliant games in the Indianapolis. And Tulsa, as we have already mentioned, lost to Memphis. They probably still did not feel themselves ready for a big fight.
Frank Haith, the coach of Tulsa, is one of the best, but John Beilein, from Michigan, is not worse. He is the brilliant strategist. Beilein already has proved this, leading the team to the first NCAA championship and helping them to win their 1st game in 9 years in the tournament of Big Ten.
So, you can go to the sport.netbet.co.uk and guess who will be the 1st, and who will come back home defeated. We predict that Michigan will be the winner with the score close to 70, and Tulsa will loose with nearly 60 points.
