#6 Texas Longhorns vs #3 Purdue Boilermakers. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #3 Purdue Boilermakers. Texas defeated Virginia Tech but they now face a Purdue club that is known for its offensive prowess. The sheer size element that the Boilermakers bring to the floor may be the most difficult thing for the Longhorns to overcome.

 

The Boilermakers have a two-headed monster in Edey and Williams who can cause havoc. The Boilermakers are a difficult squad to contain, especially with Ivey’s explosiveness and Stefanovic’s three-point shooting ability.

 

Texas has the defensive advantage, but Purdue’s size advantage provides them the advantage as they advance to the Sweet 16. Purdue will win to a predicted score of 69-65.
