    Think this deserves its own.

    Potentially: Oregon v. Winthrop......first team to 90

    UNC v. Texas (sweet 16)
  2. Idaho

    Weber State vs. anyone.

    the ghosts of Ruben Nembhard and Harold Arcenaeux will be there.

    Silas Mills..........

    edit----he went to Utah State.
  4. Illinois vs. Southern Illinois as a potential second-rounder.

    The thread title says intriguing. Watching the Salukis win 65-49 would not be an intriguing game, in-state or not.
  6. Bruce Weber vs. his old team, the Salukis (who often are ignored north of Carbondale) beating "Illinois' team," the "mid-major" making another Sweet 16 run, or being overtaken by a team many don't think should be in the tournament. Need I go on?

    If you want to convince me, please continue. To me, a game needs to have a good chance to be fun to watch to be intriguing. SIU's defense would shut down Illinois and make for a boring, low scoring game that never really feels close.
  8. See, you're equating intriguing with entertaining. I agree, it may not be the most entertaining to watch, but there is plenty of intrigue.

    Duke-VCU would have been hella intriguing last year, with K and Capel facing off for the first time.

    Arkansas-USC sucked on the football field, so let's hope it doesn't translate to hardwood.

    My vote is UNLV-Georgia Tech, but it all goes back to my love of 1990 music. Life sucked, but I liked the music.
