5Alioune Diouf6-54.83.4

Joe Sullivan’s analysis: James Madison seems better than a No. 16 seed; it defends well and will look to clog things up and not let LIU run wild. The Blackbirds average nearly 80 points per game, but Madison is athletic enough – especially A.J. Davis and Nation – to slow them down. If Madison controls tempo, it wins. On Monday it was reported that Madison’s leading scorer, Goins, was arrested. He will not play the first half.



Regional: Play-in for West 13th seed. Time: 9:10 p.m. Seed, record/last 10: La Salle (20-13, 7-3); Boise State (21-10, 6-4).

Joe Sullivan’s analysis: Boise has dealt with the tough competition of the Mountain West all season and fared well, especially at home. Arguably, the Broncos were too much of a home team, going 5-8 in road games. La Salle was 8-6 on the road. The Explorers rely on perimeter play with a great set of guards: Galloway, Duren, Tyrone Garland (12.9 ppg), and Mills. Sometimes coach John Giannini will play all four at the same time.
