    First play-in games are tonight

    Fairleigh Dickinson vs Florida Gulf Coast

    Followed by...

    Vanderbilt vs Wichita State


    Really don't give a fukk about the first game but the second one is a good matchup. Two good teams who underachieved at times this season. I'd like to see Wichita get in and make one more run with VanVleet and Baker but I took the 3.5 points with Vandy.

    Best play-in game that I can think of. As square as Wichita seems I think its the right side. Vandy is a loser team.

    I actually think Vandy moves on. It seems lately that teams deemed "suspect at large picks" have advanced. Last year UCLA comes to mind. Vandy has been up and down but has way more size than anyone Wichita has faced this season.

    I actually only played the first games, FDU +5.5. I think Wichita State is priced just right so passing as of now.

    Tough call on vandy game. WSU has team exp. but vandy has size.

    I like vandy but who knows if they decide to show up and actually play for once.

    All Vandy's forwards are 6'8+.

    I think everyone is undervaluing Vandy a bit here..Wich hasn't seen size like this

    Two seven footers on the court. Immense size. I think if there's a play at all its vandy. Line will probably move in favor too. Everyone and their mother is on WSU.

    No one is undervaluing Vandy, at least not me. They're really talented. From a pure talent perspective, they're probably a top 25 team. But there is a reason why they were inconsistent all year and just lost to a really bad Vols team.

    If they come to play then they can win. It's just a crapshoot trying to predict when they show up.

    Everyone is on Wichita for past runs, like they are going to upset everyone every year. I watched them play a couple times and they didn't look very good. Stagnant offense and zero low post players with much skill. If they arent launching and hitting the 3 ball at a high percentage I don't see how they win, they are about as under sized as a team gets. Then again Vandy could pull the no show like 60% of the season.

    Whichy Prevails imo

    Vandy struggles away from Nashville, as well as in the half court. This will be a grind game, in which Shockers pull out...

    Passing tho

    Play in games are silly to me, it means you still havent made the tourney, weak if you ask me, theyve played a whole season no need to still have to play your way in, go back to 64 if youre gonna do this.

    Vandy will cover the late game. Could come down to a final shot.

    Wow, don't think I have ever witnessed a 7 footer that thinks he is a top draft pick look so bad against players half his size. Vandy proving they didn't belong. I thought Vandy would show up with a solid effort even though they have under achieved all year but Vandy's front line is a complete embarrassment to get worked by Wichita.

    It was a very competitive game but the battle-tested, experienced team played better and smarter down the stretch.
