#OKState is a 10-seed in the Midwest. Vs. Michigan in Indianapolis. Potential meeting with Louisville after that. OSU's reaction: pic.twitter.com/wfmtVsdcER— Mark Cooper (@mark_cooperjr) March 12, 2017
Michigan is one of the hottest teams in the nation, winning seven of their last 8 and the Big 10 Championship over Wisconsin earlier today. If Oklahoma State can get past the Wolverines, they’ll face the winner of Louisville (2) and Jacksonville State (15).
At least one analyst thinks this match-up is good for Oklahoma State.
Perfect matchup for Oklahoma State. Unless your 4 man is Deonte Burton, you aren't playing small ball vs OSU. #SelectionShow— Doug Gottlieb (@GottliebShow) March 12, 2017
