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 mid-day game for the South bracket is No. 6 SMU and No. 11 UCLA.
A year removed from being snubbed out of a chance to dance by the selection committee, Southern Methodist University finished 15-3 in the American Athletic Conference and 26-6 overall – winning both the regular season and conference tournament championships. With the AAC title, the Mustangs are headed to the NCAA Tournament berth – their first time since 1993 and their 11th appearance in school history.
SMU is opening up tourney play against Steve Alford and the UCLA Bruins. UCLA finished 20-13 overall and 11-7 in the Pac-12. The Bruins are led by Norman Powell – 16.4 points per game average, and the projected No. 14 NBA draft pick, Kevon Looney, who averages just under 10 rebounds per game.
