More About Miami

Kody Malstrom: The ACC darling of the year. The Miami Hurricanes went from under the radar to exploding onto the scene and captivating the public’s hearts by taking down Duke and North Carolina in a span of 10 days.

Too bad it didn’t last, as Miami came crashing hard back to earth due to its poor defense. Like UNC, Miami relied on its offense to out-shoot opponents and pray to the high heavens that its defense could do enough to help it get the win.

Still, this is a formidable offense that possesses the power to shine. The Canes are led by Kameron McGusty — who averages 17.5 points per game — and Isaiah Wong — who hauls in another 15.5.

The Canes are unpredictable and own a suspect defense.

More About Iowa State

Doug Ziefel: Iowa State has everything you look for when trying to identify Cinderella teams in tournaments.

First, the Clones are excellent defensively, ranking 10th in adjusted defensive efficiency, sixth in turnover percentage and 15th in 3-point percentage allowed during the regular season.

Secondly, they have a guy who can take over games and lead them to victory. That guy is Izaiah Brockington, who transferred from Penn State for his senior season and became the heart and soul of this team. We saw his magic early on in the year, as he burst onto the scene with two big performances against Xavier and Iowa. However, the Cyclones managed to beat Texas Tech, Memphis and Creighton — even when Brockington wasn’t at his best.

This is a very dangerous team when it all comes together.
