The winner of this game is a 1 seed...there is no doubt about that, it isn't even up for discussion. The Big10 is the best basketball conference this year, so the champion is definitely going to be a 1 seed. The loser gets the nice consolation prize of being a 2 seed, and likely the highest 2 seed. The bucks are getting hot at the right time, and that is all that matters. I am still a little worried about this team in the tourney given their suspect outside shooting, but if Sullinger can play like he has the last few (especially his passing out of double-teams) then I think we have a shot at a final four run. I also believe that this year there just isn't that unquestionable favorite to win the NC. UK played in a very bad SEC, and has a bunch of freshman that showed their colors in a big game today...plus, they are a calipari team which means they won't hit FTs in the tourney. Syracuse is solid from top to bottom, but I don't think they are by far and away the most talented team in the country. We have split with MSU, we crushed Duke, and UNC doesn't impress me that much. I still can't believe that Duke and OSU have identical records, we crushed them by 22, and they are ranked ahead of us...that Duke bias.
Bottom line, with a win the bucks are a 1 seed. If we lose, we still have a shot at a nice run in the tourney if we can hit some 3s. I hope we win if for nothing other than to keep the confidence and momentum going.
