March Madness Sweet 16 Picks

Villanova Wildcats vs. Baylor Bears

The 5 seed Villanova Wildcats take on the 1 seed Baylor Bears Saturday in the Sweet 16 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Nova has been shooting well in the tournament despite being without stud point guard, Collin Gillespie. Baylor has come off two blowout winners in the first two rounds.

The bottom line here is that Baylor can flat out get after it and will be way too much for this Villanova team. Baylor is amazing both sides of the ball. Jared Butler, Macio Teague, and Davion Mitchell flat out get after it and will get in your shorts on defense.  These guys are fun to watch and can run the score up in a hurry. The Bears get help from Mark Vital, Matthew Mayer, and Adam Flagler. I look for Matthew Mayer and his mullet to be raining 3 balls off the bench while the big 3 guards in Butler, Teague, and Mitchell get after it. Give me the Bears in a burial/massacre/route/blowout.
