Working things back in order just at the biggest time of the college season.
Back-to-back 500 UNIT Winners on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Today I have a release that is TWICE AS BIG.
1000 Units - Opening Round Dog of the Year
I have a dog on the day card that is ready to score, and ready to score in a big way.
I have not gone higher than 1000 Units. This is my Highest-Rated release since my site debut, and it also happens to be my third straight winning day.
Don't miss out on Winner # 3 in a row. It's gift-wrapped for you this first Thursday of the Big Dance!
While the XL Center in Hartford is geographically better for the underdog Catamounts, not sure much else is in favor of this American East rep that is making their second dance appearance in the past three years thanks to upending Virginia-slayer UMBC in the conference final, 66-49 on Saturday.
Vermont much go up against a very long, very deep, very experienced Florida State team that advanced all the way to the ACC Final last weekend before going cold and bowing to the overall # 1 seed in this year's Dance, Duke.
Leonard Hamilton's team was able to win and cover their first four games in last year's tournament, as they took down Missouri, Xavier and Gonzaga before losing a hard-fought 58-54 contest in the West Regional Final to Michigan. True, that was last year, but the nucleus of talent (Mann, Cofer and Koumadje) are all upper-classmen and know what it takes to advance in the early rounds of this one-and-done tournament.
The Catamounts are going to have a difficult time the longer this game goes on with the Seminoles "fresh legs", as State goes 11 players deep, not to mention the size of the above mentioned Koumadje who goes 7'4" along with sophomore forward Mfiondu Kabenjele who stands at 6'10"!
Vermont does have the player-of-the-year in their conference Anthony Lamb on their team, and the forward does average over 24 points and close to 8 rebounds per game to look to lead them. They also have a pair of players in Ernie Duncan and Stef Smith that average double-figures, but after those 3, the scoring options are limited. Having to face a Florida State defense that can smoother you is going to be an issue this afternoon for the Catamounts.
A look at Vermont's pre-conference schedule shows Louisville posting 86 points on them, and Kansas posting 84 points on them back in November. Also of note is the fact the the American East Conference reps stand at just 12-19 in this tournament over the years.
This will be a game for about the first 25 minutes, then the pedigree of the power ACC will win over and the Seminoles will take this one by about 15 points or so.
Lay it with Florida State.
