Minnesota March Madness 2010 profile: Minnesota came on strong down the stretch in the Big Ten and their height could be a problem for Xavier. Lawrence Westbrook is an experienced senior guard which you love to see in March, he leads the team in scoring and can be clutch. In addition Hoffarber can really shoot the three and can also be clutch. Sampson and Iverson improve game after game and could really give Xavier fits with their height. Minnesota could absolutely knock of Xavier but we really like Xavier and Minnesota isn't likely to beat Pittsburgh, so we are staying with Xavier. Watch out for Minnesota next year though.
