FAU vs tennessee
The Sweet Sixteen has finally arrived on this beautiful Thursday evening. I don’t know where you guys are but where I am it is absolutely beautiful outside for the first time in a while. I’m currently sitting on my porch and writing this article while listening to some Jimmy Buffett. The spring vibes are amazing. But now, let’s get to the matchup. FAU in the sweet sixteen is something that almost nobody probably predicted. But since the round of 32 was a cakewalk for them since they’re a real basketball school who can beat a 16 seed, they advanced easily.
Tennessee on the other hand had a tester of a second-round matchup against Duke, which they handled with ease.
Tennessee has been playing some great defense so far this tournament allowing under 60 pts to their opponents in both games so far. FAU on the other hand has been relying on their offense to put up points for them. The problem that will arise for FAU is that Tennessee’s defense is better than their offense. I don’t believe that FAU’s offense is going to be able to do what they have done so much of this season on offense against the Vols. Tenessee’s offense has struggles slightly so far this tournament, but it looked like they were getting their groove back at the end of the Duke game.
I don’t see a world where FAU finds a way to advance tonight. I love the owls run as much as the next guy, but this Tennessee team has weapons that are greater than what FAU has. But then again, it’s March Madness so what do I know. Still taking Vols though.
Hammer: Tennessee -4.5
