4 key issues to be solved by the 2019 Final Quarter



Final Four is not far away. Virginia Auburn Michigan State and Texas Tech descended to Minneapolis. Expectations for the annual culmination March Madness are almost complete.

With Saturdays – No. 1 Virginia v. No. 5 Auburn (6:09 ET, CBS), No. 2 Michigan State v. No. 3 Texas Tech (8:49 ET, CBS) – Approaching, Yahoo Sports College Writers gathered to answer the four most intriguing questions that will be set this weekend – two per match. 19659019] 1. Can Auburn boost Virginia? (Or, maybe, even try?)

The first match on Saturday is a stylistic clash. Virginia is the slowest basketball team in the college. Its games on average make up 60.6 people per team. His standard offensive trip lasts almost 21 seconds. These 353th and 352th places were taken from 353 teams of the division. Auburn, on the other hand, scored his biggest tournament frustration with 97 points in 75 possessions against North Carolina. Her typical offensive stroke is only 16.5 seconds. She played only one game throughout the season at a slower pace than the average for Cavs.

Consequently, theoretically, the up-tempo contest was held by Auburn. Attack the squeaky defense of Virginia before it gets established, thinks. Accelerate methodological, clear crime of higher seed. Pull Virginia out of its comfort zone, in a track-side where Jared Harper and Bryce Brown will flourish.

However … There are equally attractive reasons why Auburn can be completely satisfied with a hammer. First, macro view: this is a 5.5-point weak. This is the lower command. The fewer opportunities that it provides to a superior enemy, the better this will be to make this advantage.

This is especially true without the victim Okeka's Trouble. Tigers are cut. They may need 40 minutes after Harper and Brown, who took them to victory over Kentucky. Head coach Bruce Pearl even admitted that his second half strategy was to "get out of the way, get Jared or Bryce." This is probably his best bet again if Harper and Brown have their legs. They scored 35 points from the 47th half in Auburn, and the last round in the match, played at a regulatory pace, scored over 60 points. They also needed six minutes of rest. Can they be so productive without breathing and / or faster?

Thus, the pace of the question turns into: Can Auburn get the best from both worlds? Can he use the pace to occasionally make space for Harper and Brown, but do it selectively to keep them fresh? Can he break the Virginia offense, but do not lose the feeling that he must disrupt the game to win?

The answer will come from dragging the war between the best defense of the country's defense and one of the safest crimes. The selective pressing of the pace of Auburn depends on the forward turnover. Tigers make enemies 24.9% of their possessions. Cavs only cough their weight by 14.7 percent of their. This differential will be the widest in any D-I game throughout the season. Something must give. Whatever party, most likely, will not play again on Monday night. Henry Bushnell

2. Will Virginia be able to face Auburn's power or attack her weakness?

After the triumph of the Elite Eight Auburn, Okeka's presence in the sides was marked as an emotional catalyst. Although Kentucky won, his absence at court would be a story. P.J. Washington and Reid Travis combined 37 points for 23 field trials (and seven missed free throws before downloading).

Without Okeka, Auburn blown up in front. And while the front of the court in Virginia does not have fans with a low position with the ability of Washington, it has dimensions to overpass Tigers. The question is whether this will allow Tony Bennett.

Bennett's rotation fluctuated situationally. His three men (Thai Jerome, Kyle Guy, Dean & Hunter) rarely sit there. For the rest there is little confidence. Here are their minutes against Gardner-Webb, Oklahoma, Oregon and Purdue (OT *), respectively:

  • Mamadi Diakite (6-foot-9 F / C) : 27, 28, 35 , 42 *

  • Kihei Clark (5 ft. -9 G) : 36, 33, 37, 24 *

  • Jack Salt (6 ft. 10 C) : 5, 2, 3, 34 *

  • Braxton Key (6 ft-8 F) : 11, 21, 7, 2 *

  • Jay Huff (7 ft. 1 C) : 5,9,1,0-0

Bennett may not play a truly large composition that goes 5-9, 6-2, 6- 5, 6-7, 6-8. He can also expand the double warehouse, which goes into the account 6-2, 6-5, 6-7, 6-9, 6-10.

Diakitus played in almost 40 minutes in the last two weeks. But Salt, the eldest with brute force, is an example that opens his eyes. He barely saw the floor in three rounds, then he was excellent in his supporting role against Perd.

If Bennett returns to the Hunter-Diakite-Salt line with Auburn, tigers do not really have a counter. They are already an unsatisfactory defensive team. If Virginia can get the first shots, outsiders will be in trouble.

But does Bennett trust that Harper and Brown are in large numbers? Clark is perhaps the most suitable match for Harper. And Purdy's play was anomalous with Carsne Edwards. Only adversaries with great protection have recently taken Clark to the bench.

If Clark was in court, Salt probably will not be.

Auburn's greatest hope is another Bang Harper blast. Bennett is likely to mix and develop the league, mainly to prevent the explosion. This may mean that Virginia will not be able to take advantage of the weakened Auburn Front. Bennett will be able to manage the feed. Henry Bushnell

3. Can Michigan take care of Texas Tech?

There is one issue that has arisen in many damage to the state of Michigan over the past few years. Too often Spartans are trying to take care of basketball.

The state of Michigan turns 18.5 percent of its possessions this year, an improvement over the past two seasons, but still remains below the national average. In the six losses of the Spartans this season, they made 15.8 turns per game, compared to 10.4 per game in their 32 wins.

Mother care should be especially important against the Texas aggressive defense, which thrives on the take-off production. Red riders are driven by fast-paced Guardsman Matt Muny, long Jarrett Culver stoppers and the instincts and timing of Trick Owens and Norens O'Donnell shots.

Three keys to any opponent are limiting turns, scoring in the transition before the Red Defense's praised Red Army sets up and generating additional possessions through the offensive glass, when defenders help escape from the rebound. In the last two states of the state of Michigan state is very strong, but the key will be how the Spartans adapt to the hands of Texas, always around the moon. Jeff Eisenberg

4. Чи може Texas Tech виграти достатньо для того, щоб утримувати штат Мічиган у перехідному стані?

Airtight захист в цьому сезоні був торговою маркою Texas Tech, але пізній перехід Червоного рейдеру з дуже хорошого до еліти співпав з поліпшенням злочину. Вони вийшли з-за меж 100 кращих з налагодженою наступальною ефективністю, вводячи лютий до трійки 30 найкращих 30 місяців пізніше.

Хоча Калвер розквітав від рольового гравця до All-American через його здатність генерувати свій власний постріл, Злочин Техасу Техас став вибухонебезпечним лише тоді, коли його підтримка почала полегшувати навантаження на нього. Муні створює шанси для себе і своїх товаришів по команді, Davide Moretti – елітний шутер, а Brandone Francis, Deshawn Corprew і Kyler Edwards можуть зробити постріли.

Десять оборонців Мічиганського штату буде одним з кращий Texas Tech зіткнувся, хоча спартанці не досить агресивні, щоб скористатися відсутністю Red Raiders 'правдивий охоронець точки. Texas Tech забив щонайменше 1 бал за володіння в кожній з останніх 14 ігор, але штат Мічиган відіграватиме позитивну оборону, змусить заперечувати постріли і відмовитися від декількох можливостей другого шансу.

Для Texas Tech, створення кошиків буде ключовим більше, ніж просто очевидні причини. Червоні рейдери повинні забити, щоб держава штату Мічиган вийшла з перехідного періоду і змусити спартанців атакувати набір захисту. Джефф Айзенберг
