68 reasons to watch the 2012 NCAA Tournament

CLEVELAND The 2012 NCAA Tournament tips off Tuesday with the First Four in Dayton. With 68 teams in the field, here are 68 reasons why you should watch.

1. The defending champs Connecticut is a No. 9 seed and Kentucky looms in a 3rd round matchup. The Huskies have talent but will have their hands full to repeat.

2. Redemption for the Buckeyes Ohio State sophomore Jared Sullinger and the Buckeyes were the overall No. 1 seed last year but fell in the Sweet 16 to Kentucky.

3. Kentucky’s kids in typical John Calipari fashion, freshmen and sophomores propelled the Wildcats to a 32 2 season. But do they have the moxie to win a title?

4. Marquette’s Jae Crowder if you haven’t heard of the electric senior yet, then you will in the next couple of weeks. He’s averaging 17.4 points per game and shooting over 50 percent from the field.

5. Cooper the Bobcats guard was on the 2010 team that upset Georgetown and he’s still a spark plug capable of a triple double on any given night.

6. Brackets if you’ve entered your office pool, you have to be at least a little invested in the game outcomes. If you haven’t joined one, well, you should.

7. The upsets you know they’re coming.

8. The Beach no, not the Leo DiCaprio movie from 2000. This is Long Beach State and they made noise testing power conference teams during out of conference play. They also have some of the coolest jerseys in the tourney.

9. Michigan State’s Draymond Green this is it for the Michigan State senior who was this year’s Big Ten Player of the Year and has racked up a lot of wins in his college career.

10. Shaka Smart and VCU it was a magical run to the Final Four last year as a No. 11 seed. This time, the Rams are a 12. Can they do it again?

11. Missouri’s run and gun offense the Tigers average 80 points per game led by guards Marcus Denmon and Kim English who are incredibly fun to watch.

12. Kansas’ Thomas Robinson he wears the number 0 but you won’t see that in any of his major stat categories. The junior forward’s averaging a double double and had arguably his best game of the season in one of the biggest, Kansas’ overtime victory over Missouri.

13. Kentucky vs. Indiana potential rematch no guarantees of course, but a No. 1 vs. No. 4 rematch of one of the season’s best games is a possibility in the Sweet 16. Christian Watford hit a buzzer beating three to give Kentucky the loss in December.

14. Marv Albert and Steve Kerr the legendary basketball voice Albert is back announcing the tournament for CBS/Turner for the second straight year, so you can count on hearing his ‘Yes’ call a few times. He’s joined by Steve Kerr, one of basketball’s best analysts.

15. The First Four four games in two days, win or you don’t dance with the big boys in the main bracket. Last year, VCU started in Dayton and ended up in the Final Four.

16. The Big Easy the Final Four’s back in New Orleans, so you’re sure to see some great city shots throughout the broadcasts. Last time the championship was played there, Syracuse beat Kansas in a classic.

17. McCollum he doesn’t get much attention playing in the Patriot League but McCollum’s one of the nation’s leading scorers, averaging 21.9 points per game.

18. Detroit’s Ray McCallum from McCollum to McCallum, it’s another mid major player with a chance to make a bigger name for himself. McCallum’s a coach’s son who turned down offers from marquee players to play for dad at Detroit.

19. Linsanity just kidding (though Lin’s alma mater Harvard is in the mix.)

20. The Jackrabbits No. 14 seed South Dakota State has one of the most fun nicknames in Division I. Its matchup with Baylor not so fun.

21. Gonzaga vs. West Virginia second round matchup Mark Few’s Zags are a consistent mid major at large but they were given no favors as a No. 7 seed playing West Virginia in Pittsburgh.

22. Creighton’s Doug McDermott the first team All American is shooting 61 percent from the field. That’s just a gross level of proficient.

23. Syracuse’s Fab Melo the Syracuse big man makes a huge difference. One of Syracuse’s two losses this season came with him out of the lineup and he was missed.

24. Murray State gets its chance the Racers lost only one game and were in the top 25, even top 10, much of the season but only seeded on the No. 6 line.

25. Xavier and Cincinnati they are on opposite sides of the bracket, which means another brawl is very unlikely.

26. St. Louis coach Rick Majerus the animated coach is back to the NCAA Tournament for the first time with St. Louis following years of success at Utah.

27. No. 16 seeds they have never beaten a No. 1 seed. Don’t expect 2012 to change that though Lamar is pretty good for a No. 16.

28. First timers it’s always fun to see schools in their first dance. Norfolk State and South Dakota State are newbies this year.
