Instant Analysis

Drake shoots the 3-ball well, led by sophomore guard Tucker Devries. He will be able to shoot over the smaller Miami guards, and he may go for 30 points in this matchup.

Miami will counter with guards Isaiah Wong and Nijel Pack, who are threats to pull up once they cross half court, particularly Pack. However, the status of sophomore big man Norchad Omier will be important to monitor. He left early in the first half of Miami’s ACC Tournament semifinal loss to Duke.

Other than Omier, Miami is a guard-heavy team. Drake forward Darnell Brodie is an imposing 6-foot-10 and 275 pounds, and he will be a double-double threat in this matchup.

It should be an entertaining and high scoring matchup. However, don’t be surprised if Drake becomes a trendy upset pick by tip.
