Games to Watch
1-Gonzaga vs. 4-Florida State
This is the game of the night on Thursday in my opinion. The length of Florida State is going to present some challenges for Gonzaga. But can the Seminoles score enough?
3-Houston vs. 2-Kentucky
I’m rather excited for this one as well. This could be a program changing win for the Cougars.
3-Purdue vs. 2-Tennessee
At this point these games aren’t exactly “upsets,” but Purdue is a lower seed and I think they beat the Volunteers tonight.
1-North Carolina vs. 5-Auburn
If Auburn is shooting well, the Tar Heels better watch out. This game should be a lot of fun.
