@Digitalkarma Honestly that is literally the first thing I have seen to why fau might win thank you DK .. I mean they do have a rebounding edge .. I think rebounding vs conference USA teams and big 12 teams might negate that a little bit.. but yea I see rebounding on paper
No prob. Being on neutral also negates the discrepancy in conference play some. Literally it's a fight for survival in an elimination game so may not matter as much where the opponent is from unless it's a really small obscure conference like Horizon I never see any school from that conference in the tourney .. but C-USA is a decent conference for a midmajor.. I know KSU played better opponents but can't discredit FAU for getting this far. they beat Tenn who was ranked around the top 10 all season so they have every right to be here.
Also not that I think it could be a huge factor but something to think about as well. Will fatigue be a factor for Kstate after that thrilling OT game. I know these players are young and should be able to handle it but the adrenaline playing through these tourneys is insane I have to think it may creep in a little for Kstate in the 2H. Just an opinion gl superman
