Miami vs. Buffalo – Game Time, TV Channel, Announcers, Betting Line, Predictions

The 2016 NCAA Tournament Bracket was revealed this evening on CBS.

The Miami Hurricanes out of the ACC earned the No. 3 seed in the South region, where they will face the 14th-seeded Buffalo Bulls of the MAC. The Hurricanes (25-7) were knocked out in the semifinals of the ACC tournament, while the Bulls (20-14) won the MAC tourney. The winner of this matchup is rewarded with a meeting with either No. 6 seed Arizona or the winner of the Vanderbilt/Wichita State play-in game, provided that team beats the Wildcats. 

Date: Thursday, March 17

Time: 6:50 p.m. ET

TV Channel: TNT

Location: Providence, R.I.

Announcers: Eagle/ Webber/Elmore//Washburn

Opening Betting Line: TBA

Prediction: The 'Canes are a dangerous team. With guards Sheldon McClellan and Angel Rodriguez leading the way, alongside big man Tonye Jekiri and versatile wing Davon Reed, this Miami team has Final Four potential.

Buffalo can play, and the Bulls are back in the Big Dance for the second straight year with a different coach. Still, expect Miami to win this match-up and make some noise in the region.
