Pinky swear we got a preview coming up, but how about that! 10 seed Broncos look to face off against Northwestern. Certainly there are no easy games in the tourney, but we’re here, and this one feels winnable. Probably a better matchup than Memphis last year, but no matter what happens we’ll just take a win (or 6).
(Also: I can’t make any promises, but it’s a goal of mine to get the commenting finally working in time to have a gamethread for Thursday. Keep the fingers crossed!)
What You Need to Know:
Date: Thursday, March 16th (St. Patty’s Day Eve)
Time: 5:35 PM as the crow flies in MDT
TV: truTV, Impractical Jokers Network
Place: Sacramento, California where normally I could make a joke about there actually being a basketball team now, but the Kings are doing pretty good.
Reactions and First Looks:
Don’t forget to call out sick or dead or whatever you have to do:
I think this is our best first round draw ever—we have a good shot to win this one. Go Broncos!
I feel pretty good about this. Northwestern is solid – They beat Indiana 2x and Purdue 1x. However, they seem like a team that we have a chance to compete well against. If we can just get that elusive, first win in the NCAA tourney … we might be a Sweet-16 or better. GO BRONCOS!
It’s a good matchup! No doubt it’s possible and would be huge for this program
