The Florida Atlantic Owls (34-3), despite playing in CUSA, boast a roster that his the length and athleticism of a Power 5 program. So far through the Big Dance, FAU has already defeated Memphis, Fairleigh Dickinson and Tennessee (pulling off upsets in two of the three games). The Owls will need to ride behind their athleticism and defense, the latter of which has stepped up in the tourney. In three contests at the this year’s Big Dance, FAU opponents are averaging under 64 points per game. Also, the Owls have not lost since February 16.
In head coach Jerome Tang’s first season at the helm in Manhattan, the Kansas State Wildcats (26-9) have been one of the best stories of the 2022-23 season. Coming into the year, K-State was picked to finish last (by many experts) in a highly competitive Big 12 conference. Fast-forward to now, and their electric style of play led by Markquis Nowell and Keyonte Johnson has already got them through Montana State, Kentucky and Michigan State at the Big Dance. On the cusp of the Final Four, KSU may be playing with more zeal than anyone right now.
