All You Really Need To Know About Utah State (28-6)

(Mountain West), NCAA NET Rank: 29. Midwest 8-seed

The Aggies overcame an earlier loss to San Diego State to win the Mountain West to win a revenge game for the conference tournament title. Outside of that one gaffe, they won 17 of 18 games with a high-powered offense that managed to survive the slow and go Aztecs when they absolutely had to.

With 6-11 Neemias Queta on the inside, and G Sam Merrill doing everything else, the offense can handle any style. The passing is terrific, the blocked shots are intimidating, and they dominate the boards. No big-name team will want anything to do with this group.

All You Really Need To Know About Washington (26-8)

(Pac-12), NCAA NET Rank: 45. Midwest 9-seed

The offense was suffocated by Oregon twice in the last four games – including in the Pac-12 title game – but the Huskies still managed to win the conference regular season. They struggled early on against some of the better teams – losing to Gonzaga, Auburn, Minnesota and Virginia Tech -but they did enough in conference play.

It’s a young team with a terrific defense that blocks shots, comes up with takeaways, and keeps games in the 60s. There aren’t enough rebounds, and the ball movement isn’t quite there, it’ll be a tough out thanks to its D.

What’s Going To Happen

Well this makes sense … take two teams from the Washington and Utah and bring them to Ohio.

This is a bad, bad team for the Huskies to deal with. The Aggies rebound, and Washington doesn’t. It’ll be the high-octane Mountain West offense vs. the fantastic Pac-12 defense, but Utah State can D up in a big way, too. The Huskies will have way too many one-and-done possessions.
