NCAA Tournament Featured Game 3/20

Posted March 20th, 2009 at 6:00 am


For day two of the NCAA Tournament I went with #5 Florida State against #12 Wisconsin. This East regional match-up will be played on Friday night scheduled at 9:55 ET. The downloadable “Bracket Pack” is now working. Unfortunately it doesn’t appear they’ve gotten the courts properly assigned. This game was played on Villanova’s home court yet the real game is taking place in Boise.

This time around I decided to create a Top Five highlight reel via EA Sports World. Continue on to read a short recap and check out the stat screens and video.

This was a slower tempo game that was competitive until early in the second half when FSU went on a 14-2 run to pull away. After that the team held strong for a comfortable 74-58 victory. Where both point guards lit up the scoreboard in the Cal-Maryland game this one was much more balanced. FSU’s PG Toney Douglas led the team with 23 points. Wisconsin got a strong performance out of center Jon Leuer who had 16 points and 12 rebounds.
