Today is the first of six games over the next three weeks for the Cavaliers. A lot of talk this week about how Michigan State will come out of the East Region, but none of that matters if the Hoos don't survive this weekend, and it starts with the Chanticleers.
Need the full preview? Schwartz has got you covered right here.
The road to the Final Four starts today, one step at a time, and something about two feet per stair, which just seems inefficient to me, but it appears to be working for the Hoos, so more power to them.
Leave your pre-, in-, and post-game thoughts here and as always, Go HOOS!
