Just kidding. The Bearcats are playing the Noles for the 38th time with a trip to Boston and the East Regional Semi's up for grabs. These really are two very similar teams who approach the game in similar ways. The odds of this being an aesthetically pleasing offensive shootout are roughly one in a million.
I am almost convinced that the reason that this game is tipping off so late is that Turner/CBS are concerned that watching this game will set Basketball back a decade. Its a very legitimate fear. And I don't particularly care if this game is as ugly as a Xavier girl. I just want the win. Vital information in chart below, graphs and gamethread after the jump. Go Bearcats!
