The USF Bulls should be a really awesome story and a team everyone is getting behind. They won their first round game against California, then upset Temple in the second round. They're just like VCU! Unfortunately, they have two things working against them. One: VCU's '40 minutes of hell' is infinity times more entertaining than USF's style of basketball, a style which makes Wisconsin's Bennett Ball look exciting by comparison. Two: they're up against a bigger underdog.
USF meets the Ohio Bobcats in the Round of 32 after they knocked off Michigan. Their performance was an incredible one and it's tough to believe that they can repeat it, but it's not like USF are going to attempt to run away with this one. Their style of basketball should keep this close, even if Ohio plays poorly.
Game Date/Time: Sunday, March 18, 7:10 p.m. ET
Venue: Bridgestone Arena, Nashville, Tennessee
