NCAA Basketball- Texas vs. Miami

Posted on: March 21, 2008 8:31 pm
 
Texas will play the Miami Hurricanes in the second round of this years NCAA Tournament. Texas is coming off of a game against Austin Peay in which they never trailed, while Miami won their first round game via a second half surge. This game will come down to defense in My opinion. If Texas can shut down Jack McClinton, they will win the game with ease. If Jack McClinton goes off, and Miami contains the Longhorns big men, Miami will pull off the upset. Prediction- Texas 72, Miami 65.

Well we will just have to see what happens. but with that said...

Texas will win.

The only way I see Miami winning is if they play smart and dont force anything or... too much anyways......

They are not consistent enough from the perimeter to win this game.Then Miami has no chance, because Barnes will run some Zone.

Miami is athletic enough to compete with Texas but I don't think there deep enough. They are not consistent enough from the perimeter to win this game.

I think Texas will blow Miami out.  Augustin is too good.

Every fan has worries about being knocked off by a lower seed.  Texas should handle Miami just fine and Atchley just needs to keep shooting.  That's the only way to get out of the slump he's been in.

Yeah but if Augustin and Abrams aren't on top of their game, we might have problems. I think we will win the game, but I am nervous about whether they will be up to the task. With their play recently, I don't know why I am though...

Texas shouldn't have any problems with Miami. As long as the Horns can contain McClinton, they will roll. I see Texas leading by 12-15 points the entire game.

Justin Mason sure is playing with more confidence now a days. I'm worried about Connor Atchley and his "Cold streak".
