The round of 64 in the March Madness 2015 Tournament kicks off Thursday, March 19 in various arenas across the nation. It’s 32 games in 48 hours and when it’s all said and done the field of 64 will be cut in half. The early afternoon game for the West bracket is No. 3 Baylor and No. 14 Georgia State.
Baylor has flown under the radar a bit – they’re just dominant enough, but not too much so that fans nationwide are honing in on them, but they should be. The Bears finished fourth in the Big 12 regular season standings with a record of 24-9 overall and 11-7 in the Big 12. And most of their losses came by a margin of 10 points or less. Baylor was also ranked eighth in the nation for rebounds – averaging just under 40 per game – and are looking to advance past their Sweet 16 dismissal from last year.
The Bears were chosen by the selection committee to go dancing this year and will open up tournament play against Georgia State in the round of 64.
Georgia State has a roster filled with transfers from big programs such as Kevin Ware, who used to play for Rick Pitino at Louisville. Head coach Ron Hunter and the Panthers are making their first NCAA Tournament appearance after having the best season in program history – 24-9 overall and 15-5 in the Sun Belt Conference. Georgia State earned their automatic bid after winning the Sun Belt Conference Tournament.
