Wow. What a tournament this has been so far huh? There are currently 0 top-seeded teams still left, and only one 2 seed. This has either been the most turbulent season and the greatest tournament in history, or it has been a terrible year for the ones setting the seeding. Miami and Texas are two teams that have been on absolute fire so far, and this matchup is going to be a true clash of high-powered offenses. Even though I did just watch Miami dismantle Houston, I like Texas in this matchup a little bit more.
Miami has been very true to its mascot in its last three games. Absolutely thrashing the competition, and leaving deficits so large you’d think you’re looking at varsity versus freshman game scores. The lowest deficit in points they’ve won by is 13, which is crazy considering these are supposed to be the best 64 teams in college basketball. Now, this Miami team is one built a lot like the Golden State Warriors, meaning there is a ton of elite guard play, but I’m not too sure about their big men. I will admit, I’m not entirely sure that Miami needs great centers when they have Isaiah Wong cheffing up some better stat lines than Gordon Ramsey. But their big-man play is just something to look out for in this matchup. Speaking of Isaiah though, this has now been two games in a row where he’s broken the 20-point threshold. I don’t know if he’s rockin Michael’s secret stuff, or if someone shot his puppy John Wick style before the tournament but the man has been on a rampage ever since the first whistle. And I would be remiss not to mention Nijel Pack who is, big surprise, another guard on Miami, and has also broken the 20-point threshold in two out of three games. I’m beginning to see why maybe the big-men of Miami don’t have great stats, they probably touch the ball twice a game, and both touches come from rebounds.
What I love about Texas is what I don’t love about Miami. If Isaiah Wong had gone down with an injury in the first two minutes of their matchup against Houston, I’m not sure they pull out a win. But not only did Texas get a win against Xavier, but they also beat them by 12. And all without Dylan Disu who has been a huge cog in the Texas machine this tournament. (Just want to throw out there that there’s a good chance he plays against Miami.) Instead of folding like wet toilet paper this team rose to the occasion and brought the game to Xavier. And that’s unsurprising because this team has been going four deep on the bench all tournament long, unlike some teams that play in more fair weather….I’m looking at you Miami. In the game against Xavier alone, this team had more players break the ten-point barrier than I have genuine human connections. That number is five by the way, and yes college has been going fine thanks for asking. I’m gonna do something unorthodox here and instead of shouting out the best player on the team, I’d like to shout out the guy who stepped up, Christian Bishop. In the absence of Disu, this bench forward had 18 points and 9 rebounds. Keep in mind, this was a guy whose season averages were 6.5 points per game and 3.7 rebounds per game. What a time to upgrade.
This is going to be a great game no matter who comes out on top, but Texas is the deeper roster and the more consistent team. Bet on Texas’s moneyline and get your extra $365 in bet credits.
