Hopefully, I am watching the first time a 16 seed will beat a one seed in NCAA history. All right, I may be dreaming about this, but imagine the pandemonium that would ensue in Burlington. The only two NCAA tournament victories and University of Vermont history would be against the dreaded Orange. However, as it stands right now, we are somewhat behind due to ice cold shooting. The only way Vermont, or any other 16 seed, will ever pull off the ultimate upset is if they're able to shoot well and consistently throughout the entire game. Lehigh played with Kansas last night simply because they were able to shoot for the first 30 minutes of the game. Of course, as the final score shows, they totally fell apart over the last 10 minutes and lost by 20, but they still showed that low seeds can be dangerous when they are hot. So, I don't really know how Mike Lonergan is going to remedy this right now. However, he needs his boys to start hitting their shots because UVM quite simply does not have the size to get any second chances against a very long Syracuse team. However, I am not going to say that this game is a lost cause; you never know what might happen in 23 minutes.
