This South Region bracket has been totally busted as the #15 seed Lehigh Mountain Hawks (27-7) and the #10 seed Xavier Musketeers (22-12) were able to knock off Duke and Notre Dame respectively. The media darlings are out. These underdogs will play this evening at 7:40 PM EST in the Greensboro (NC) Coliseum.
The guard matchup in this game is absolutely tantalizing. Lehigh's C. J. McCollum absolutely went off on Duke, scoring 30 in their 75-70 victory. He will have to match that intensity today so that the coach doesn't turn back into a pumpkin.
Looking to stop Lehigh's run is Xavier's Tu Holloway. The point guard proved that he was really tough by scoring 25 in their 67-63 win over the Fighting Irish. Leading a team instead of saying dumb things at press conferences is what the Musketeers will need in order to win today.
