View Full Version : Sweet 16: Power Rankings

ESPN ranks the teams 1-16 on their version of a postseason power ranking:

13. Gonzaga
This might be the best team Gonzaga has sent to the NCAA tournament. Josh Heytvelt is big enough and strong enough to battle UNC's Tyler Hansbrough inside. Jeremy Pargo is fast enough to stay in front of Ty Lawson some of the time. But Matt Bouldin is the player who makes the Bulldogs go, and if he plays well, they'll have a chance to shock the Tar Heels.

Matt---keep going to the hoop and get to the FT line.

I see that Schlabach "fearlessly" has us getting steamrolled. Bulletin board.

I'm pretty surprised they have UNC over UCONN in the power rankings. UCONN just destroyed their first two opponents... though I htink our 2nd round opponent (LSU) was much better than theirs (Texas A&M).

UCONN is going to lose to Memphis.

I see no problems with the rankings, EXCEPT I believe we would wax MSU and Kansas. Nothing against the Big-10 and Big-12 champions, but from the games I've watched, they are not better than us. No way, no how. I know most will disagree, just had to get it off my chest. :D
