Arkansas Razorbacks vs. Seton Hall Pirates (1:30 PM ET)
This is arguably one of the most interesting matchups in the first round, as their styles couldn’t be any more different. Arkansas is sort of a free-wheeling, run-and-gun, type of team that likes to keep bringing the offense throughout the game, as led by the three-guard attack of Dusty Hannahs, Daryl Macon and Jaylen Bradford. Seton Hall, meanwhile, prefers to slow down the pace, pound it inside to double-double machine Angel Delgado, wait for the opponent to commit mistakes, and work through it.
Additionally, there could be an exciting clash between the team’s low post men, particularly Delgado and the Razorbacks’ Moses Kingsley.
Seton Hall (+1) advances after a thrilling game, 71-69.
Oregon Ducks vs. Iona Gaels (2:00 PM ET)
It’s going to be a battle of two well-oiled offenses. Oregon is 49th in the nation in scoring at 79.1 PPG, and despite the injury of big man Chris Boucher being very concerning, they still have four guys that average double-digit points, three of which also sink one three per game. Dillon Brooks should continue being the man for the Ducks. He’s back on rhythm after a slow start, and has been netting 20.5 points on 54.1 percent shooting since the start of February.
For the upset-minded Gaels, their attack results to 80.5 points and almost 10 treys per contest. They, too, have four players that can score well, led by Jordan Washington, who can be imposing in the paint. The sophomore is recording 21.8 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 1.8 steals in his last six outings.
Oregon (-15) wins, but falls short in covering the spread, 80-68.
