#1 Indiana Hoosiers -11.5
The Hoosiers are going to be expected to run right through Temple in this game, but we’re not really all that sure that that is going to be the case. Temple was an underrated team coming into this tournament, and what we are learning is that the Atlantic 10 really was one of the best conferences in America this season. Indiana was always convincing against the James Madison Dukes on Friday, but we aren’t putting a lot of stock in that game. We remain concerned about how this IU team has played down the stretch and we think that ultimately, it could be there for the taking. Temple isn’t going to be the team that takes this club down, but it is definitely going to be a war out there. G Khalif Wyatt is coming off of a huge first round game against the NC State Wolfpack in which he scored 31 points, and he is now averaging over 20 points per game. F Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson and the rest of the bigs on this team are great in the paint, and the defense for the Owls could ultimately give them a chance. The Owls have allowed at least 72 points in three straight games, but they are getting the job done during some of the biggest possessions in the half court. This should be a great game on Sunday.
