Why Colgate Will Win

Don’t think for a second that the NCAA Tournament committee didn’t know what it was doing with the 3-14.

The two teams really do play D, but they’re going to want to play this in the 80s, and Colgate will be happy to keep bombing away from three and hope to catch lightning in a bottle.

The Raiders will make this fun, and they’ll get Twitter buzzing, and then  the 18-2 run will come as Arkansas moves on.
