Southwest Region: Vanderbilt Commodores (5) vs. Richmond Spiders (12) Thurs. March 17, 2011 4:10 p.m. EST

The Southwest Region will have just two games that will get underway in the 2011 NCAA Tournament on Thursday, March 17 after the four first round games are played on Tuesday (March 15) and Wednesday (March 16). The first game to be played in the Mile High City at the Pepsi Center will be the Louisville Cardinals (4) taking on the Morehead State Eagles (13). Even though there is always a chance for the upset as the Eagles could stock Rick Pitino’s squad, the chances are that Louisville should advance to the next round to face either the Vanderbilt Commodores (5) or the Richmond Spiders (12).

Once the game between the Cardinals and the Eagles have been decided, they will get to watch the Commodores and the Spiders go head-to-head to see who they will be facing in the third round. Even though the Spiders are a 12 seed and are not thought to be the team that will be advancing, the chances of an upset are always strong when a five seed going up against a 12 seed.

Obviously, the consensus is still that the Vanderbilt Commodores will be the team to beat in this matchup as they have played pretty well all season long, but I am betting on the upset here as the Richmond Spiders will advance to the next round to face the Louisville Cardinals in my opinion.
