MVC: SIU-Bradley preview

By Jerry Palm - March 03, 2007

Game 1 at the Scottrade Center this afternoon is top seed SIU against #4 Bradley. SIU is looking to break the jinx of top seeds failing to win the MVC tournament, while Bradley is hoping to make a case for an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament.

If the Braves win today, but not tomorrow, they will probably get a few minutes of discussion, but likely come up short in the committee room.

The one thing that bothers the SIU defense is quick guards penetrating, and the Braves have very quick guards. The question is, can they figure out what to do if they get inside and then execute it. Also, Bradley did not seem very disciplined on the defensive end, and the Salukis should be able to exploit that.

I like SIU today, but it wouldn't be the biggest upset in the history of college basketball if they lost.
