Memphis finds itself just one more win away from its first ever trip to the Western Conference Finals. It rallied from a 17-point deficit this past Monday night in Game 4 to take a commanding 3-1 series lead with a 103-97 overtime victory as a five-point home favorite.
The Oregon Ducks won the PAC 12 Conference Tournament, but were given just a number 12 seed in the Midwest Region. They’ll face off against a very talented young Oklahoma State Cowboys team. Both of these teams have been inconsistent during the year, but they are both capable of playing very well. Could this be a number 12 over number 5 seed upset this year?
It’s a key early season Big 12 matchup when the Oklahoma Sooners (4-1, 13-4) travel to Lawrence to meet the #3 ranked Kansas Jayhawks (5-0, 17-1). The “Phog” Allen Fieldhouse, which seats 16,300 screaming fans, is one of the best venues in all of college basketball. Opponents may disagree as it is not kind to visiting teams. This is one of the of the toughest places in all of sports for the visitors to win.

Two of the most prominent teams from the regular season will take center court on Sunday afternoon in a big Elite Eight match-up. The North Carolina Tarheels are among all four remaining number one seeded teams who have yet to be beaten in the NCAA Tournament. However, they will take on the Oklahoma Sooners who have been playing extremely well this Sunday in a fight to determine who moves on to the Final Four. Both teams enter the game coming off impressive performances in the sweet sixteen. North Carolina took down Gonzaga by 21 points while Oklahoma took down Syracuse 84-71. The Tarheels have long been considered the most talented team in America, but they will take on what most consider the best player in America that is Blake Griffin and the Sooners. Will Griffin make another marvelous performance to take down the Tarheels or will North Carolina’s star studded lineup be too much to handle?
The No. 5 Oklahoma Sooners felt the importance of losing their superstar forward Blake Griffin after losing two straight games to both Kansas and Texas. However, Griffin has returned to play and the Sooners will try to get back the swagger they have carried all season. The No. 15 Missouri Tigers are most probably what many consider the surprise team of the conference. The Tigers had a legitimate shot at winning the Big 12 outright before getting blown out by Kansas on Sunday 90-65. However, the Tigers can still deliver another surprising performance if they could find a way to take down Blake Griffin and the Oklahoma Sooners this Wednesday night.
Third-ranked Oklahoma will try and move up in the BCS standings on Saturday as they play at rival Oklahoma State. With a win against the Cowboys, the Sooners would almost assuredly get a spot in next week’s Big 12 title game against Missouri. If they would go on to beat the Tigers they would probably then play in the BCS National Championship game.
The Preseason NIT has an outstanding matchup in the Championship game as #11 Oklahoma meets #10 Purdue. Both teams are unbeaten, have excellent coaches, and superstar players. The Sooners are led by preseason Big 12 player of the year Blake Griffin, who is averaging 27.2 points and 18.8 rebounds per game. Purdue is led by E’Twaun Moore and Robbie Hummel. The Sooners rely upon Griffin for the bulk of their scoring while Purdue is more balanced.
