3.14: Roxy and Barry break down the brackets
Roxy Bernstein and Barry Tompkins break down the 2011 NCAA tournament pairings.
Oh let the madness began in here to try to sort it all out and go through the brackets through local Roxy Bernstein and very -- has -- this gentleman. Let's take a look at these racquets broke her own and -- tell me what you look I was beginning in the east region the number one overall seed in the internment of course the Ohio State Buckeyes and they'll have a fairly easy road at least to the regional semis. Other games to look at in this one Washington of course the seventh seed coming out of the pac ten after winning that championship they'll take on Georgia. Then North Carolina to -- We'll open up against Long Island at second round matchup between North Carolina and Washington. I can't Washington's chances except the game's going to be in Charlotte. There's an awfully tough on the Huskies go back there right in the middle Tobacco Road and play. North Carolina basically -- a home game for the Tar Heels who see this turn in the past teams struggled go back there to face team and their home area and it's -- make an awfully tough Washington's cable though -- in a deep run as we saw last year. Yeah they really are and I think at their very best they're capable of beating north North Carolina. Problem is I haven't seen him the very best lawyer want to be quite honest with you and a Butler runs a -- really gets this team ready to play the post season they've done it out of Leicester than that and it. Two or three times under low and that. Long long tall order but. Not out of question but he has like coming out of this region Ohio State. Number one overall seed I think did a pretty good routes and I like them like Carolina -- unfortunate electoral topsy aids. You get taken the truck. I hate to live here we are and I never do that the racetrack is -- -- -- let's not run of the restoration is showing that you do get the number one seed in the west region and how about Arizona the five seed taken out Memphis because the game I would connect. Texas and Oakland California a team that flying under the radar. Right they are very good basketball team and I know Texas was floored when maybe -- -- one cedar earlier in the season but. A whole bunch of tough matchup for them in the first round I I think they are serious guy and they're gonna slow the game down and their big. And they used to plant top caliber competition Medicare about it Oregon and Oregon has really good and they -- -- and they returned the favor being tobacco. The following year they're capable of playing against good teams they're big if they get their tempo I think they won again. The match about looking at this in this bracket is Arizona. And Memphis had just -- here the former Arizona players lose their part of a national championship team young coach in Memphis going up against his alma mater it's gonna. The very interesting in a high energy game -- those two teams -- -- how about San Diego State addict you're gonna Tucson and if they get through there they go to Anaheim very friendly seeding for them what you guys like coming out of the street in San Diego State -- Duke has San Diego State. They are for real folks aren't let's move on to the southeast region. Number one seed in the southeast beat Pitt Panthers they will open up against the sixteenth seeded -- yes thriller Arkansas Little Rock. How about down at the bottom bracket court a lot of people think and maybe that's a little bit of -- high seed for Florida although they did get the SEC title game and what sticks out in your mind in this track I think that. All the more brackets stated that we see here this is the -- why don't put anybody really to come out of -- literally. I think that Pete is the first number one seed to go down -- fact I've got going on the second round Blaine Taylor's Old Dominion team will beat them I think in the second round. Yeah I agree with with rocks yeah I think -- of these bottom seeds I think in Zagat eleven Utah estimated twelve I think big cause some problems and even look at UCLA. If you Shealy happened job a beat Florida I would not be shocked about it I've said all along. That out of the pac ten conference I think UCLA probably has good chances anybody. To get farther -- the -- than anybody else think and you guys are big fans in Utah State but who do you like coming out of this region. The team that and it was over seeded I think gators coming out this region I I just. I think this safest place in the industries because I think people go down. If you look at the teams in this bracket in Zagat I think they've got a shot to the sweet sixteen really like Utah State. But Florida is playing well right now we've now lost to Kentucky today in the SEC championship I let the gators come. SE I got the gators have an up coming out of it also but I think that a lot of minefields out there and I have no confidence when I say Atlanta to address -- and you I -- I thought that I would very I don't know much confidence and I let's get to the final reason the southwest region of the number one seed. -- Kansas Jayhawks who really weren't the competition with a lasted for being the number one overall seed. In this tournament and Notre Dame down to bottom isn't excuse me that the team may be what people need to look out for a very I don't you think USC has a chance to make some noise they'll open up. In I'm. That Wednesday game out of part of the first -- and then if they win they'll be asked to play Georgetown Chris Wright is expected to be back for the -- which is going to be big for person you think USC can mix and I do I think at least through Friday now I don't know if they can get on pass that you know I think one of the problems they have a very short bench -- -- seven people I think yeah. They certainly get through their -- game -- -- they're very capable of beating Georgetown say what you will about Kevin -- I think the guy can really coach you really prepares his team to play a game. I think there could be said about Ben Howland is well they can be said about low Roma or raw bar as well. A pac -- -- -- president about it but I -- yeah I think they have a real chance not winning three games in the space of six days. That may be a pretty -- What do you -- industry. I'm with very I like USC is a team to keep an eye on I've -- -- the sweet sixteen I think it sets up nicely for them. I think they can get past Georgetown then milk run -- Purdue and I think they can beat down I really like Notre Dame this a team I saw early Dave I was really impressed with Dan they have some. Experience and have a good backcourt they're physical they play defense. In fact I got Notre Dame go to final forest bracket. And very pretty. I think it's just in its views this as honestly we have not community into each other we did not. I got Notre Dame go to out of four also -- what I really like about Notre Dame. It's even other high profile team they're still kind of flying under the radar you know -- -- talk about all the teams the big east and restart -- Carolina. Everybody's talking about Duke in Kansas and -- just kind of plod along going along real steady well you guys got three out of the for the stadium we'll -- I I don't know why we all know it never. I'm not not hostile way it will probably be looking at -- a couple weeks what everybody respects that's a good gentlemen as always thanks for the time always -- things it.
