The Mountaineers have humbled some of the best teams in the country this season. Their wins against Kansas and Baylor put them on the map. They aren’t intimidated by any team.
Bucknell is a trendy upset pick in this year’s NCAA Tournament. They’ve had upsets in 2004 against Arkansas and their biggest one against Kansas in 2005. I guess anything could happen this year so they shouldn’t be overlooked.
Can Bucknell upset West Virginia in Buffalo?
Who do you think will win? We help you fill out your bracket.
The West Virginia Mountaineers don’t have a superstar on the team, but they are one of the best ‘teams’ in the NCAA Tournament. They make smart passes and wait for an open shot. Head coach Bob Huggins has had some very good teams in the tournament over the years. This could be one of his best. They have enough talent to win a few games in the NCAA Tournament this year.
The Bucknell Bison were the best team in the Patriot League this year. They did have two solid wins this season when they won at Vanderbilt and against Mount St. Mary’s. They pale in comparison to some of West Virginia’s big wins. Bucknell’s Nana Foulland will need to have the game of his life to pull off this huge upset.
West Virginia mowed down some of the best teams in the country with wins over Kansas and Baylor. I have a hard time thinking they could fall to Bucknell in the first round.
Prediction: #4 West Virginia Mountaineers
