March Madness 2011 Prediction: St. Johns a Bracket Buster

This a March Madness 2011 prediction nobody would have seen coming to start the season, St. Johns will not only get into the March Madness 2011 bracket  but they are going to make some noise. St. Johns is led by senior guard Dwight Hardy who can score with the best of them averaging 17.1 points per game but one of the big things about Hardy is he comes up even bigger in big games scoring 33 vs Uconn and 26 vs Duke. If you are wondering how this team that was considered a rebuilding program has beaten 5 teams in the top 15 this season look no further than it is led by seniors, 4 out of the 5 starters are seniors and the top man off the bench is as well. Anytime you have senior leadership in the college game you can have some success, what we find a little surprising though is that overall the Big East is pretty senior heavy this season so the jump for St. Johns you would think would be lessoned. So our only conclusion is that have a new coach the caliber of Steve Lavin can really make a difference when you have older capable players willing to listen.

Our fearless March Madness 2011 prediction for St. Johns right now is they make it to the second weekend off of some big play from Hardy but they don't have enough overall three point shooting to survive further.

  1. In this regard, sports physiotherapists can be work in several arenas. Some teams, especially on the college or professional level, will employ physiotherapists, and some individual athletes may hire them as well. Other sports physiotherapists might work in a hospital or a clinic, or any other place where athletes may go to receive treatment.
