Next up in the short series of looking ahead to next season is the Southwest region, where things essentially went haywire the first weekend.

Friday night was just the latest example of what the veterans mean to the team but when the game is on the line the basketball will end up in the hands of a freshman. Just as he did in the second round against Princeton Brandon Knight struggled offensively, shooting 2-for-9 over the first 39 minutes of the game.
