Game 35




2012 beat 1965 in round one, now they’ll face of with 1980 who knocked out 1997. Both teams were eliminated in their NCAA tourneys by hated rivals, 2013 lost to eventual champion Kentucky, while 1980 lost to Purdue.

Game 36




1981 and 2013 enter the 2nd round after easy round one wins over 1996 and 1964 respectively. Many claim a bad matchup cut short 2013’s NCAA tournament run. Now they’ll face an even tougher matchup a round earlier vs. the 1981 NCAA Champs.

These are a couple of dandy match-ups.

Game #1---The lack of a true point guard comes into play in this one.  Cody is non-existent against Tolbert and Turner.  And 2012 has nobody that can guard Woody.  1980 wins by double digits.

Game #2--In an almost identical match-up of Game #1 a few different things emerge.  Yogi does his best to hang with Isiah but Cody falters once again due to the physical presence the '81 team has down low.  Crean found somebody that likes to run, except Knight's Hoosiers play defense. This one gets ugly early and the '81 squad sprays '13 with a big ole can of "whoop ass."

The second game is a classic.  In an attempt to intimidate the '81 team, the '13 team wore 'Pan American' warm ups.  And, it looked as if it may work, as '13 jumped to a 14 point lead.  In an act of desperation, Bob Knight employs a zone in the second half to thoroughly confuse '13.  The result was a 27 point turnaround as '81 won by a score of 87-74.
