MOTSAG Pretend March Madness 2nd Round (South Region)

The 2nd Round is here for the South Region and with it comes some interesting matchups that could go either way. The pressing questions in this region are:

  • Will Ohio State continue to the Sweet 16?
  • Will the 11 seed Cincinnati continue its magic and upset Michigan St?
  • Will 4 B1G teams make it to the Sweet 16 in one Region?

Follow along below for the results of the 2nd Round.

  • 1 Baylor vs. 9 Rutgers: Baylor 81-77- I think Baylor being the more tournament experienced team wills them to the victory.
  • 5 Ohio State vs. 4 Louisville: Ohio State 75-68- Ohio State moves on but this was a hard game to predict. I truly went back and fourth with it but in the end I think Ohio States 3 pt shooting ability helps them win.
  • 3 Michigan State vs. 11 Cincinnati: Michigan State 73-62- Cincinnati’s run ends this week but not because they don’t have the talent but because Michigan State knows how to get things done in March.
  • 2 Creighton vs. 7 Illinois: Creighton 71-69 (OT)- First OT game in my region and Big East Creighton moves on.

I just want to Thank you all for reading my 1st round article and participating in the polls! Join MOTSAG next week for the following matchups below:

Scarlet Seven: Evan Pryor

Evan Pryor final six

Evan Pryor a dominant high school running back from Williams Amos Highschool in the town of Cornelius, North Carolina is a Running back prospect many blue blood college programs would love to have join their respected 2021 class.

Currently ranked by the 247 composite ranking as a 4 🌟 prospect and an overall Rating of 84th best player in the country Pryor possesses elite speed and vision and is one of the Ohio States top Running back targets.

Evan was kind enough to sit down with me and give a few minutes of his time to discuss amongst other things: recruiting , hobbies , visits planned, etc. (Quotes are directly from the interviewee himself with no alterations). Please enjoy the next session of the Scarlet Seven!

ZD: What has the recruiting process been like at this point? Stressful ?

EP: At this point it can get stressful but as of lately I haven’t been stressing.

ZD: I know you recently revealed you’re top 6. What do you like about those schools and where does Ohio State stand?

EP: I was comfortable with those 6 schools and can really see myself playing there. Ohio State is top 3 in the list.

ZD: What visits do you have set up?

EP: Ohio State on March 18. Georgia on March 28th.

ZD: Do you have a commitment date at this time?

EP: No specific date for my commitment.

ZD: Ohio State has had some recent struggles with Running back recruiting . What has their message been to you as far as the plan or potentially playing early?

EP: If I were to come to Ohio State I would have an opportunity to compete to get on the field. I’ve been told I can be a plug and play because of my speed.

ZD: Mack Brown (North Carolina HC) has done a great job so far at keeping in-state talent home. Is there pressure to stay home and play or is distance not really a factor?

EP: Distance isn’t a factor. Just have to make the right decision.

ZD: Lastly, What is some of your hobbies outside of football?

EP: Outside of football I like to play basketball and video games. Cooking is something I take pride in as well.

This was a fun interview to do with Evan and wherever he decides to go for college that institution will be getting a great kid and great football player !

On behalf of myself and Motsag we can’t thank Evan enough for his time for this interview . #GoBucks
