Location: Indianapolis, Indiana
Record: 26-5 (13-3)
Leading scorers: Matt Howard (14.6 ppg); Gordon Hayward (13.2 ppg); Shelvin Mack (11.7 ppg)
What to know:
- Despite being a top 25 mainstay, the Bulldogs only had an SOS of 96.
- They're young and fearless, Hayward and Mack are freshman, Howard is a sophomore.
- 36 percent of the Bulldogs points come from behind the arc, where four players have hit 30 or more this season.
- They play slow with only 62 possessions a game, 313th most in the nation.
Projected performance: Could be a great game against LSU. I'll take the Bulldogs to advance, setting up an even more interesting game with the Tar Heels.
