The No. 10 seed St. Mary’s Gaels are meeting up the No. 3 seed Baylor Bears this Friday, March 26, 2010, playing in Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas, tipoff will be at 7:27 pm eastern time.


This game sets up to be the best battle of the big men so far in this NCAA tournament. Both the St. Mary Gaels’ Omar Samhan and the Baylor Bears' Ekpe Udoh are talented players who can both score and play defense (hey NBA scouts you probably want to watch this game).


The Baylor Bears might think they have the advantage of playing in their home state of Texas but from what I have seen all tournament the St. Mary’s Gaels are rolling and the Bears might have exchanged a home game for a softer opponent.


I expect this game to be close and hard fought, and relatively low scoring, lots of defense; in fact I would not be at all too surprised if this game came down to free throws.  If the game does go as I expect it to turnout the St. Mary’s Gaels might be able to move on to the Elite 8 if they make more from the free throw line then the Baylor Bears, then they have got a good chance to pull off the upset, they can really have a Prince Charming put on the Cinderella slippers on them again. This game will be pretty much all set offenses and big bodies banging in the paint, if you like that then this is the game for you.


Saint Mary Gaels have great balance with Omar Samhan inside and a bunch of shooters on the outside. Samhan and the Gaels were able to take exploit Villanova’s lack of size at the bottom, but doing so again against Baylor will not be nearly as easy. 7 footer Josh Lomers, 6 foot 10 Ekpe Udoh and 6 foot 10 Anthony Jones figures to make it more difficult for Samhan to do his job inside. That means the Gaels will likely have to rely more heavily on its perimeter shooting as well if it hopes to add another victim to their list.


Even though the Gaels are making the West Coast Conference look good, and even though Dunn and Carter are a great duo, the Saint Mary Gaels might not have enough to win the game if Samhan was to be neutralized; the Baylor Bears have already thought of this and have drawn up a game plan to do so. This will be a very exciting game; Baylor is showing they can finish teams off down the stretch.


www.Sportsbook.com has the Baylor Bears as 4.5 point favorites in this game and an over / under of 145 total points. I really want to say that the St. Mary Gaels will prevail in Friday’s game with the Baylor Bears, but all signs point to the Bears beating the Gaels, sorry St. Mary’s your carriage will turn back into a pumpkin.
