John’s will need him after losing five of its last six games against Villanova. The Terps would also be crazy not to consider Rob Ehsan at this point. I have to take some umbrage at LenDale White’s decision to go.
With the first and second rounds of the 2010 NCAA basketball tournament in the books, the make-up of this year’s Sweet Sixteen is set in stone, with all match-ups set to take place March 24 and 25. Here’s a look at some of the standout contests of round two, along with a listing of the 2010 Sweet Sixteen teams and their scheduled match-ups.
Drexel Law’s bar passage rate will strongly influence the placement component. The bar passage rate is unknown because the inaugural class has not yet sat for the bar. However, the median LSAT score is a strong predictor for bar passage rates. Based upon Drexel’s 159 LSAT score, it is estimated that Drexel Law will have between a 78-82% bar passage rate, which is in the same range as other mid-Atlantic Top 100 law schools.
Maryland then took a glance at Mike Brey, but he is staying at Notre Dame. That’s actually not a bad scenario, as I don’t see Brey being the answer at Maryland. However, a number of potential coaches have now turned back the Terps, and that’s bad news because it makes the job look less attractive.
On the defensive line: “I expect a great deal of leadership. I think we have two of our co-captains on the defensive line in Sean Lissemore and Adrian Tracy and they’re already good players and good leaders. I’ll look to them and then on the defensive line we have a lot depth, we’ve got good players so I’d look for us to play a lot of people there.
Villanova beat some quality teams this year, but that is expected playing in the Big East. They beat teams like Marquette, UCLA, Cincinnati, Temple, West Virginia and Louisville. Their biggest win might have been the game against March Madness three-seed Syracuse. The game was only the second loss of the season for the Orange, who fell behind early thanks to Villanova hitting 8 of 13 in 3-pointers in the first half.
On what Archer brings to the offense: “Athleticism. R.J. is definitely a guy who can drop back and take off for 50 and make a big play. He’s done it in certain instances but he’s definitely a lot more athletic, a lot more agile and good in the open field.
BA, Professional Handicapper’s League: I have Villanova as the better team only because they are more experienced and boast more weapons. Aside from Tucker and Gibson, the Longhorns don’t know exactly where their offense will come for night in and night out. Sure, Aldridge will get you some points and Buckman will battle underneath, but the Cats have four players that can light it up on any given night.
