Wake Forest-Texas Prediction: Two Reeling Teams Try To Make Amends
#8 Texas vs #9 Wake Forest
New Orleans, LA
This is the 8-9 matchup of teams that should be 4 or 5 seeds with their talent. Neither of these coaches has had great tournament success as of late.
Wake Forest Coach Dino Gaudio was glad to get the #9 seed because he has lost the four times in Tournaments where he was the higher seed and they haven’t been close.
This is game that could get up tempo with guards like Texas’ Avery Bradley and Wake’s Ish Smith.
I don’t really care for Rick Barnes and the way Texas is playing.
But I really, really, really do not like Gaudio performance in tournaments as of late going out as 4 seed in last years NCAA and getting blown out by Miami in the first round of the ACC.
The nation likes the Longhorns to as a five points favorite, which is pretty high for a 8-9 game.
