NCAA Sweet 16 Preview

Sweet 16 weekend is upon us and the OAC still has two teams dancing. I broke down how each team got there as well as the tough road ahead for each this weekend at Augustana College. Marietta College senior Andy Dollman (4:17) joined me to discuss the big wins this past weekend at Ban Johnson, as well as the challenges they will face from St. Olaf Friday night. After a perfect 9-0 weekend last time making selections, I make my Sweet 16 and Elite 8 projections for this weekend.
